Newly elected Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi raised eyebrows among her liberal colleagues Thursday; quoting former President Ronald Reagan during her acceptance speech before the House of Representatives.
Pelosi addressed the chamber just moments after securing her leadership post; calling Reagan’s last speech before leaving office a “beautiful” vision for America.

“Let us remember what President Reagan said in his last speech as President of the United States… I urge you all to read it, it’s a beautiful speech,” said Pelosi.
“He said if we ever close the door to new Americans, our leadership in the world will soon be lost,” she added.
ARMAGEDDON AGAIN? Pelosi Warns Government Could be ‘CLOSED FOREVER’ Over Budget Fight
Likely Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi escalated her war-of-words with the Trump administration Thursday; saying the government could be “closed forever” because of her opposition to the President’s border wall.
Pelosi was speaking with reporters during her weekly press conference at the Capitol when she was asked if she planned to cave to the President’s security demands.
Pelosi predicts the government will stay "closed forever" because she is never going to fund the border wall.

“Let’s hope there won’t be a shutdown of the government. That’s a very bad thing to do, maybe the President doesn’t grasp that. That is very harmful to our country at significant cost,” said Pelosi.
“They still voted against opening up the government [the last time.] Does he want to have government closed forever? What’s this about? I know he doesn’t believe in government,” she added.
CANDID CAMERA: Pelosi Tells Trump He ‘WILL NOT WIN’ on Border Wall
House Minority Leader and potential Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi escalated her all-out war with the White House Tuesday; saying President Trump simply “will not win” in his efforts to secure funding for his border wall.

“Let me ask you this: It doesn’t help for me to take a vote for this in the House where I will win easily with the help of the Republicans. It doesn’t help to take that vote because I’m not going to get the vote in the Senate,” said Trump.
“You will not win,” fired-back Pelosi.
