Trump says he can get Pelosi the votes to win House speaker post
President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday that he is willing to help Democrat Nancy Pelosi of California reclaim her position as speaker of the House following the Democrats' victory in midterm elections. "I can get Nancy Pelosi as many votes as she wants in order for her to be Speaker of the House. She deserves this victory, she has earned it -- but there are those in her party who are trying to take it away. She will win!" Pelosi as yet has no formal opposition to her bid, although a number of newly elected Democrats have called for a changing of the guard in party leadership. The Democratic caucus in the House will vote on its leadership team Nov. 28, following the Thanksgiving recess.
