The Democratic Party must be unified in order to defeat President Donald Trump in the November election, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told CNN over the weekend.
"We have to have our own vision for the future," Pelosi said. "But everybody knows that we must be unified in making sure that he does not have a second term."
With eight candidates still in the race to become the Democratic presidential candidate, Pelosi said her party is one of "vitality [and] differences of opinion."
The House speaker, who has not made any endorsement, said "any one of them would be a better president than the current occupant of the White House."
She added, "I'm grateful to all of them for putting themselves on the line, putting forth their ideas. And now, we come down to the winnowing process."
Pelosi declared, "quite frankly, with all the respect in the world for Iowa and New Hampshire, I'm not counting Joe Biden out. There's still races ahead that are much more representative of the country."
Pelosi insisted, Trump "will never be vindicated" following his impeachment, even though the Senate acquitted him, saying "the President may have been acquitted by the Senate, which didn't have the courage to honor its oath of office on the Republican side, but he will never be vindicated from this."
