Bill Clinton has issued a stern warning to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer ahead of the November midterm election.

Clinton said: “We could hold both these houses. The Republicans always close well, we have to say the right things.”

He continued: “This is not about what you did yesterday or what you’re going to do tomorrow. It’s about what the American people think you can do for them.”

Clinton’s comments come as Democrats face an uphill battle in the midterms, with many seats in jeopardy.

Clinton said it is important for Democrats to focus on the issues that matter to voters.

“We have to make it clear what we stand for,” he said. “We must make sure people know that we’re on their side.”

 Clinton also cautioned Democrats against being too confident, saying they need to “work like the devil” to win in November.

The former president’s comments come as many Democrats are feeling optimistic about their chances in the midterms. However, Clinton’s warning serves as a reminder that anything can happen in an election.

He continued: “But we have to say the right things, and we have to note the Republicans always close well. Why? Because they find some new way to scare the living daylights out of swing voters about something.

“But there’s still some people hanging on there who are really trying to think and trying to understand what’s going on.”

“That’s what they did in 2021 — where they made critical race theory sound worse than smallpox.”

“And it wasn’t being taught in any public schools in America. But they didn’t care. They just scare people.”

 Democrats will need to make sure they are connecting with voters on the issues that matter to them if they want to win in November.

Clinton also said that he believes the Democrats have a “good story to tell” about the economy, but they need to do a better job of communicating it to voters.

“The most important thing is for people to feel like their work is respected, their families are respected and their community is respected,” Clinton said. “I think we have a good story to tell about the economy, but we have to do a better job of telling it.”

He continued: “I think we did the right thing at the right time. And if we hadn’t had done it, this crisis might have occurred even sooner.

“When I did what I did,” Clinton said, “I offered Russia not only a special partnership with NATO, but the prospect of eventual membership in NATO, arguing that our biggest security problems in the future were going to come from non-state actors, or from authoritarian states selling chemical, biological and nuclear capacity to terrorist groups. 

“And that we should do this together. You’re supposed to tell the Poles they should live the rest of eternity with insecurity that Russia won’t try to come after them again? 

“Or the Hungarians or the, you know, all the others. The Baltic states. Really, after what they did, did they ever want to be in the Soviet Union? And the Czech Republic was the most democratic of all and the best-managed.”

Pelosi has not yet responded to Clinton’s comments, but she is sure to be paying close attention to his advice as the midterms approach.
