Debate night: Klobuchar says Pelosi proves a woman can beat Trump

Sen. Amy Klobuchar argued at the 5th Democratic debate Wednesday that Americans should have faith in a woman's ability to beat President Trump, stating, "Nancy Pelosi does it every single day."

KLOBUCHAR: "I govern both with my head and my heart. And if you think a woman can't beat Donald Trump, [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi does it every single day."

Context: The quip came after former Vice President Joe Biden argued that he is the most prepared to beat Trump in a general election. Klobuchar argues her record of winning in red and purple districts proves that she could win America's middle ground.
