(ThePatriotSource.Com)- When a politician won’t admit they are wrong, you know they’re an ideologue. And that’s exactly what Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did this week when she repeatedly refused to admit that President Donald Trump’s decision to ban travel from China was the right move.
During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union,” Pelosi was grilled over the Democrats’ response to Trump’s decision back in January. Tapper referenced comments made by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that Trump’s ban was “reactionary” and represented “xenophobia.”
Pelosi, looking visibly troubled, refused to admit she and her Democratic colleagues got it wrong.
Speaker Pelosi on Trump’s China travel restriction: “Tens of thousands of people were still allowed in from China. It wasn’t as it is described as this great moment. … If you’re going to shut the door because you have an evaluation of an epidemic, then shut the door” #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/jpKFxYVCu6

“One point of clarification that I was wondering, Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign told me earlier this month that he supported President Trump’s partial travel restrictions on January 31 blocking foreign nationals from China from coming to the United States,” Tapper said. “Do you agree it was the right move by President Trump at the time?”
Refusing to answer, Pelosi said, “Let’s go into the future, okay?”
That’s not an answer. Nancy!
Speaker Pelosi then started rattling off new attacks against President Trump and utterly failed.
“Actually tens of thousands of people were still allowed in from China, so it wasn’t as it is described as this great moment,” she said, referencing the tens of thousands of American citizens that were allowed to return home. “There were Americans coming back, green card holders coming back, but there were tens of thousands. If you’re going to shut the door because you have an evaluation of an epidemic, then shut the door.”
So Pelosi endorses even stricter border controls now? And doesn’t want American citizens to return home during a pandemic?
“What the American people want is for us to have a plan to go forward,” she said. “And our plan to go forward addresses their concerns.”
Has Pelosi hit peak…Pelosi? When the Democrats would rather endorse banning American citizens from returning home than admitting the president was right, you know they’re up to something!
