Pelosi mentions Bush, Obama, and Biden in her leadership farewell address but ignores Trump

Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House, did not mention former President Donald Trump during her final address to Congress on Thursday.

The Democratic legend thanked Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden for their service, but she made no mention of Trump. In a statement delivered on the House floor on Thursday, Pelosi said that while she still intends to serve in Congress, she will no longer run for leadership posts in the Democratic caucus.

With President George W. Bush, we made historic investments in renewable energy; with President Barack Obama, we transformed health care; and with President Joe Biden, we forged the future — from infrastructure to health care to climate action," Pelosi said.

She went on to say, "Now we must boldly proceed in the future grounded by the values that have carried us thus far."

Soon after Pelosi's address, Biden issued a statement complimenting her. On Thursday morning, he allegedly contacted Pelosi to congratulate her.

Biden stated, "When I think of Nancy Pelosi, I think of decency. "She is the most significant Speaker of the House of Representatives in our history," history will record.

"She exemplifies the duty of elected officials to maintain their oath to God and nation to guarantee that our democracy delivers and continues to be a light to the rest of the world in innumerable instances. She reflects a dignity in her acts and dignity she sees in the lives of the people of our country in all she does "Added him.

She and Reps. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., as Democratic leader, and Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., as Democratic whip, have long served as the party's leaders in the House of Representatives, so her departure creates a significant leadership void.

Pelosi, 82, has spent 35 years in Congress.
