House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has made a wild prediction that the Democrats will re-take the House in the 2016 elections, according to The Hill.

Her projection flies in the face of the GOP’s current 17-seat majority in the chamber, which many Republicans believe could increase in the midterm elections next month.

“Their days are numbered,” she told her weekly press conference. “I know that in two years, I know we’ll have a Democratic Congress and a Democratic president.”

But the California Democrat appeared to admit that such a victory is unlikely to happen on November 4. “I’d like it to be in two months.” she said referring to the next session of Congress.

When asked whether she meant that she’d given up hope of recapturing the House in the midterms, Pelosi said, “No, I’m not. I think we’ll do okay.”

Pelosi compared the elections to the Olympics, saying that the results will go down to the wire, according to The Hill. “Five weeks from today, we can have no regrets,” she said.

The minority leader then launched into a tirade against GOP policies. “They have no ideas,” she said. “They have nothing to offer the American people in terms of job creation, financial stability, lowering the cost of education, raising the minimum wage, stopping their tax breaks for their friends to send jobs overseas.”

Pelosi also claimed that Democrats had run a better campaign during this election cycle than Republicans, saying, “We’ve out-mobilized them, we’ve out-recruited them, we’ve out-raised them to a shameful extent. They’re desperate.”

Pelosi also took issue with the term “illegal aliens” during the press conference, according to Breitbart.

When a reporter asked about Iraqis living illegally in America while using the term “illegal aliens,” she replied, “Are you referring to undocumented people who are in the United States?”

“Illegal aliens, yes ma’am,” the reporter responded.

“Undocumented people, OK,” Pelosi said again, according to Breitbart.
