GOP Strategist: Trump Well on His Way to 'Draining the Swamp'

DNC Chair Slammed for Continuing Anti-Trump Profanity on 'Unity Tour'


President Donald Trump's 2016 New York State co-chairman said Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will never be speaker of the House again and credited Republicans with causing the "death knell" of ObamaCare.

New York City Councilman Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island), who chaired Trump's campaign in the state alongside former gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino (R-Buffalo), said that even if Democrats win back the House in 2018, they will elect a fresh face as their speaker.

"I don't think Nancy Pelosi will ever be Speaker of the House again, whether [Democrats] win or whether they don't," he said.

Borelli added that "the disaster of 2017 is [DNC Chairman] Tom Perez."

Borelli ripped Perez as a man who is operating a rudderless party with "no message."

Perez made news throughout 2017 for his obscene criticisms of Republicans on his "unity tour" - including an April stop in Newark, N.J. where he claimed the GOP "doesn't give a [expletive] about people."

Borelli said Democrats' recent message has been that "we're all going to die over everything" - from the new tax law to ObamaCare repeal.

He said the tax law's directive neutering the individual mandate "is the death knell for the program."

Looking ahead to 2018, Borelli projected Republicans will add at least one senator to their ranks after the midterm election, mentioning the seats currently held by Sens. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.).
