Socialists Attack Pelosi for Applauding SOTU Line: ‘We Will Never Be a Socialist Country’

The Democratic Socialists of America released a statement on Wednesday attacking Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for clapping when President Trump said that America would never be a socialist country during his State of the Union address Tuesday evening.

“Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country,” Trump said. “America was founded on liberty and independence – not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.”

“Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country,” Trump declared.

This line from Trump was met with applause by many in the House chamber including Pelosi, who was seated directly behind Trump.

The Democratic Socialists of America are none too pleased with Pelosi’s reactions to Trump’s statement and released the following statement:

“Nancy Pelosi clapping at Trump’s remark about socialism, while children in Flint drink poisoned water, tens of thousands die for lack of health insurance every year, and we are headed off a climate cliff because big oil refuses to give up their profits. is peak capitalism. The American People will not stand for it.”

It should be noted that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who has openly protested Pelosi at times, is probably the most prominent member of the Democratic Socialists of America.
