WASHINGTON — Vilified by Republicans on the campaign trail, Nancy Pelosi emerged as President Donald Trump’s preferred choice to become speaker of the House, arriving on Capitol Hill with an air of inevitability after leading her party back to the majority.

He said those Democrats need to be able to run for re-election in two years without being saddled with the GOP’s attacks on Pelosi. By Lisa Mascaro. SENT: 1,050 words, photos.
