House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to refuse calls for impeachment proceedings to begin, despite the speaker stating she believes that Donald Trump has been involved in a criminal cover-up. Joy Reid and her panel discuss how the Democratic base appears to be increasingly alienated by House Democrats refusing to impeach the president, and what their logic might be.
U.S. President Donald Trump praised the two most high-profile proponents of Britain’s departure from the European Union on Thursday, ahead of his planned visit to London at a time of political turmoil following the resignation of Prime Minister Theresa May.
Trump told reporters he had great respect for British politicians Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage and considered them friends, but declined to say whether he supported either man to succeed May, who will step down on June 7.
“Nigel Farage is a friend of mine. Boris is a friend of mine,” Trump told reporters as he left the White House to deliver a speech in Colorado. “I like them … but I haven’t thought about supporting them. Maybe it’s not my business to support people, but I have a lot of respect for both of those men.”
