In an interview with Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” that aired Friday morning, Trump said of Pelosi: “I hope she doesn’t step down. It would be a very sad day for Republicans if she steps down.”

Trump, who spoke to the network Thursday at the White House, touted the recent Republican victory in a Georgia special election. Pelosi has been facing questions about her leadership since Democrats lost the hard-fought race.

Trump said the victory “was very big,” adding “I think I helped a lot.”

The president called Democrats “obstructionists,” saying he thought they would do better at the polls if they worked with the GOP.
