There is "no question" that Democrats need to rebrand, but their "Better Deal" plan is not the answer and sounds like an advertisement from an "American pizza chain," President Donald Trump's former campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson said Monday.

"There is no question that the Democrats need to rebrand, particularly after the spanking they received in November," Pierson told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program, where she squared off against Democratic strategist Steven Lesser. "I don't think that copying an American pizza chain is the answer to that."

On Monday, congressional Democrats plan to unveil their economic agenda, "A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future," announcing a plan that would feature higher wages while lowering costs and allowing the tools Americans need for survival, reports CNN.

"What they're actually doing by saying better jobs, better wages, better future, etcetera, is saying that the last 8 years of Obama's administration have failed the working public," said Pierson." In fact, they have taken it further, because President Trump is already doing a wonderful thing with the economy. So who wants better when they have the best?"

Lesser, though, said he doesn't think the Democratic plan is a contradiction, and the key to success is to not just say that "Trump is bad."

"I think that any time your organization, political, business, whatever, has a failure like we had in the election, you have to have the leaders of that organization take some measure of the blame," said Lesser. "They can't shift all the blame away. That doesn't mean that some of these other things didn't play a role. The entire intelligence community believes that Russia tried to influence our election, so I don't think that's completely off base to suggest that."

Further, Lesser said that while Trump's side is boasting of economic success, "we had eight years of really good economic growth under President [Barack] Obama. Trump has really done nothing to affect that. It is still pretty much the same as it was from March of 2009."

Trump also has signed executive orders for apprenticeships, which is something that [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer had said would be part of the new Democratic policy, said Pierson. He's also been fighting illegal immigration, which "does suppress wages in many areas."
