House Speaker Nancy Pelosi struggled to name a single accomplishment that former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) had while he was in the House of Representatives when she was asked by a reporter on Thursday during a press conference.

“Beto O’Rourke announced today that he is running for president,” NBC News’ Kasie Hunt said. “What in your view was Beto O’Rourke’s signature accomplishment as a member of the House?”

“Beto brought vitality to Congress…when he came, he came as a real champion for the environment,” Pelosi responded. “He got a great deal of support from the environmental community in his district, he won a primary on that subject.”

“And, also, he was a member of the Armed Services Committee, a strong member of the Armed Services Committee, which is very important for his district,” Pelosi responded. “In preserving our planet and protecting our people, they’re at least two areas in addition to his vitality in so many different ways.”

WATCH:

The only bill that O’Rourke sponsored or co-sponsored during his time in Congress was a bill that designated “the federal building and U.S. courthouse located at 511 East San Antonio Avenue in El Paso, Texas, as the ‘R. E. Thomason Federal Building and United States Courthouse.'”

President Donald Trump mocked O’Rourke on Thursday following his announcement, saying: “He has a lot of hand movement. Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?”

“I’ve never seen hand movement, I watched him a little while this morning, doing, I assume some kind of a news conference,” Trump continued. “I’ve actually never seen anything quite like it. Study it. I’m sure you’ll agree.”

O’Rourke has already embraced the agenda of the far-left wing of the Democratic Party, including tearing down existing border walls and supporting the $93 trillion Green New Deal.

“I am running to serve you as the next president,” O’Rourke tweeted Thursday morning. “The challenges we face are the greatest in living memory. No one person can meet them on their own. Only this country can do that, and only if we build a movement that includes all of us.”

“Any single Democrat running today — and I may not be able to enumerate every single one of them — would be far better than the current occupant of the White House,” O’Rourke later said. “So let’s keep this in mind, and we can conduct ourselves in this way every single day for the next 11 months until voting begins here in Iowa.”

“Ultimately, we all have to get on board with the same person, because it is fundamental to our chances of success that we defeat Donald Trump in 2020,” O’Rourke added. “This is democracy, and in the spirit of that, I want to make sure that I have the chance to listen to you.”

While some have suggested that O’Rourke is the next Barack Obama, CNN’s Harry Enten noted that there are profound differences between the two Democrat politicians, including the starting positions both had when starting their presidential campaigns, O’Rourke’s lack of a signature issue, and O’Rourke’s lack of appeal to minority voters.

    Can’t believe the stupid politicians are campaigning already; meaning we got to listen to their crap for 2 years. The more they campaign and talk, the more they lie. He talks about tearing down the wall, but says nothing about who is going to support all these illiterate and illegals comeing in. I sure hope to hell he doesn’t run; another damnation for this country.

    I’m from Texas, Beto hasn’t done 1 damn thing to improve the lives of the people in his district. Some of his ideas have made life worse for us!
    His wife’s family is filthy rich, Beto is just another product of the George Soros Nazi Democrat Camp!
    Schooled & trained in manipulating people to get their vote!
    He’s a fraud!

    It was a rather disturbing display as he and his wife performed for the camera. She was looking at him as my dog does when I am eating a steak. He, on the other hand, was close to a seizure, I’m sure. God Bless them; but they won’t win.

    So, they are lining up to impress, lie to, hoodwink, and pull the wool over as many voters eyes as possible. This is what Democrats do. Charisma, personality, touching on your sensitivities and emotions. The same as a really good salesperson does.

    And half of the country buys it every election there is.
    I pray that one day more Americans will start asking “what have you done?”
    “What is your exact strategy or plan?” “Can you elaborate?”

    And, in my opinion, ANY person running for ANY government office or position,
    should automatically be eliminated if their campaign is run on bashing opponents.

    Robert Francis O’Rourke is trying to appeal to anyone on the left that would vote for him. What is wrong with Texas? How can you have a magnificent legislator like Ted Cruz and then a professional lib like RFO in the same area?

    Because all the Crazy California liberals are moving to Texas. You would think these people would be intelligent enough to understand what they did to screw California up to the point the had to move and not bring their liberal
    Communist ways to Texas, but NO!
    They want to change Texas into another screwed up
    California. Beto is a fraud! He has not done a thing to improve the lives of people in his district, some of the things he did harmed the people of El Paso!
    He married a billionaires daughter and his father a judge with Cartel ties.

    I hope the people will open their eyes and not vote for a man who wants to destroy instead of build up
