Washington: US President Donald Trump has told the Fox and Friends programme that he believes the US is at risk of becoming a one party political system with him as President.

In the Fox News interview, Mr Trump criticised the House of Representatives Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi and called her “incompetent”. He said the Democrat party, which is now in the minority in both House and Senate, was at a risk under her leadership.

 

He said: “I’ve been watching Nancy’s statements and I think she’s incompetent actually. If you look at what’s been going on with the Democrats, the party,
it’s getting smaller and smaller.

“In a certain way I hate to see it because I like a two party system. We’re soon going to have a one party system. I actually think a two party system is healthy and good.”

Ms Pelosi had earlier said Mr Trump had not accomplished anything of value during his first few weeks in office. Referring to her accusations he said: “There are those that say I've done more than anybody in 100 days.... I’ve saved billions and billions of dollars. I brought Ford back from Mexico. Ford was going with a massive plant. I brought Fiat in.”
