This Thursday during a press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed a journalist who asked her if she would consider no longer using insults against President Trump.
During the conference, NBC News reporter Kelly O’Donnell suggested if the lawmaker could “not use phrases like ‘cover-up,’ or to not, perhaps, provoke him, would you be open to that?”
Nancy Pelosi responded by claiming that President Trump’s reasons for walking out of their meeting were not valid.
“Well, you have bought into his excuse,” Nancy Pelosi said. “That was not a reason that he did that yesterday. That was an excuse for him to do that.”
As previously reported, President Trump walked out of a bipartisan meeting on infrastructure due to Nancy Pelosi’s remarks over the Mueller report and claiming he was involved in a “cover-up” . He stated that he would not work with Democrats until they stopped investigations against him.
Nancy Pelosi addressed the investigations when firing back at O’Donnell, claiming that it was her way of protecting the government.
“And with all due respect to your question. I do not intend to not to honor my oath of office, nor do my colleagues in the House of Representatives, to honor our oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution, which has a system of checks and balances, a separation of power in it, and again, it’s a question of the American people understanding that what he is doing is an assault on the Constitution of the United States.” Pelsoi said.
“We can walk and chew gum at the same time,” Nancy Pelosi said. “I hope he can too.”
President Trump fired back at her comments before the meeting, stating that Dems are now the “do nothing party” because they are so focused on the Mueller report.
