Pelosi tells Trump to ‘stand up like a man' and accept election results as she slams his 'lack of patriotism'

NANCY Pelosi told Donald Trump to "stand up like a man" and accept the election results as she slammed his "lack of patriotism."

The Speaker of the House's comments came Wednesday in an interview with MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin.

Mohyeldin asked Pelosi what she – and other lawmakers – would do if Trump declares victory on November 3rd without allowing any more ballots to be counted.

"Well, I think everyone will recognize that the President should recognize a peaceful transfer of power, which is the American way.  The votes will be counted, as they come in," Pelosi said.

She then accused Trump of trying to "stir the pot" and make people "think that he really won, when he didn't."

Pelosi slammed Trump for "undermining the Constitution," and "ignoring" nearly 250,000 coronavirus deaths among other things, before telling him to "accept" the election results.

"But the easiest thing for him to do is to stand up like a man and accept the results of an election of the American people," Pelosi told MSNBC.

"For him to make these kinds of statements shows his lack of patriotism, his undermining of our elections, while he allows foreign countries like his friend Putin to undermine the integrity of our election.

"He himself is doing it as well. But let's forget about him.

In her interview with MSNBC, Pelosi also called for an agreement on stimulus negotiations – which have been ongoing since the Heroes Act passed in the House in May.

Pelosi and Trump have repeatedly fired shots at one another – particularly with stimulus negotiations and the upcoming election.

Speaking with MSNBC last week, Pelosi said Trump's supporters aren't uneducated just "sad," and scoffed that some will never be won over.

She said Trump "has no idea what the truth is."

Speaking at a rally in Lansing, Michigan on Tuesday, Trump accused Pelosi of holding up another round of stimulus checks.

"Well – after the election, we’ll get the best stimulus package you’ve ever seen, because I think we’re going to take back the House because of her.

“I think you have a lot of congressmen and women – Republican – that are going to get elected. We’ll take back the House. We’ll hold the Senate. We’ll hold the White House,” Trump added.

Trump has repeatedly slammed Pelosi and Democrats of not allowing a deal.

Democrats, meanwhile, have laid blame on Republicans for not coming to an agreement.

Pelosi recently came under fire for claiming Democrats will take control of the White House, Senate, and House following the election.

Critics brought up similar predictions from 2016, when Pelosi predicted the left would keep the White House and take a majority in both the House and Senate.
