(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said in an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday that she prays for President Donald Trump every day.

Pelosi made the point while discussing the president’s performance in Tuesday night’s debate with former Vice President Joe Biden.

“This is so tragic because I pray for him every day,” Pelosi said.

 

“I pray for the personal security of him and his family,” she said. “I pray God will open his heart to the goodness of the American people so that we can come together--E Pluribus Unum, from many one--that our Founders gave us guidance to do.”

However, Pelosi indicated in the same interview that she did not think the prayers that she and others were saying for President Trump were working.

“I think we have to be prayerful,” Pelosi said. 

“Clearly, with this president, our prayers--we either are not praying hard enough or they're just not working but some kind of intervention is necessary,” she said. “And if his family, for his personal health or his colleagues, his Republican associates, for the good of their party and our country don't want to intervene, then the election has to be the major intervention on this President's behavior.” 

Here is a transcript of the part of Pelosi’s appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” where Pelosi said that she prays every day for President Trump:

Nancy Pelosi: “I think we have to be prayerful.  Yesterday, I began the day with a group of interfaith people led by Sister Simone Campbell, of course, and others though, who were having a day of prayer of unity for our country, that we could come together to meet the needs of the American people. Clearly, with this President, our prayers – we either are not praying hard enough or they're just not working but some kind of intervention is necessary. And if his family, for his personal health or his colleagues, his Republican associates, for the good of their party and our country don't want to intervene, then the election has to be the major intervention on this President's behavior. 

Mika Brzezinski: “Should there be, Madam Speaker, should there be more debates given the President broke all the rules that he agreed to during this debate last night?” 

Pelosi: “Well, as you know, I never thought he would--that anybody should reduce themselves to being on the stage with him because we know what his behavior was going to be like.  I'm just sorry they didn't turn off the microphone when it was Joe Biden's turn to speak and turn it on when it was the President's turn to speak, and we would not have had this disruption. You would have thought that would have been a simple thing to do. But, you know, he's been enabled his whole life and now the American people are paying a price, paying a price for the fact that no one has ever said to him, ‘No.’ 

And this is so tragic because I pray for him every day.  I pray for the personal security of him and his family.  I pray God will open his heart to the goodness of the American people so that we can come together, E Pluribus Unum, from many one, that our Founders gave us guidance to do.”
