Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) joked that the United States couldn’t survive another four-year term for President Donald Trump while speaking at the London School of Economics and Political Science on Monday.

An audience member asked Pelosi what steps Congress should take to restore political norms in America if Democrats retake control of the Congress and win back the presidency in 2020.

“Already members have legislation. Congresswoman DeLauro, members of the Ways and Means Committee that are here today have legislation to codify: if you’re running for president, if you’re the nominee of the party, you have to show your tax returns,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi added that elections have consequences and that one of the most important parts of the presidential election is Article 3 of the Constitution, which establishes the judicial branch.

“If there happens to be a president who will not adhere to the norms,” Pelosi said, “if he appoints judges or an attorney general who says the president is above the law, ‘I don’t think a president can be indicted,’ this or that. Then there’s a real problem.”

“Our country is a great country. We can withstand anything. Maybe not two terms though,” Pelosi joked.

The crowd in attendance applauded this line from Pelosi, who said she “wanted to get some points for restraint.”
