Donald Trump blasts Nancy Pelosi as ‘nasty,’ says she’s ‘lost it’

Dave Boyer The Washington TimesMay 23, 2019

President Trump escalated his war of words Thursday with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying she’s “lost it” and isn’t capable of understanding a trade deal awaiting congressional approval.

“She’s a mess,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House. “Let’s face it, she doesn’t understand it.”

He also called her “nasty” for her comment earlier in the day that the president needs a family “intervention.”

Mr. Trump also called on several aides to attest that he was calm during a meeting with Mrs. Pelosi and other top Democrats a day earlier, when he was accused of losing his temper.

“You were very calm,” senior adviser Kellyanne Conway confirmed.

The president, the target of renewed mocking by House Democrats that he’s not fit for office, directed similar veiled criticisms at Mrs. Pelosi.

“She’s not the same person,” he said. “She’s lost it.”

He said during the meeting on Wednesday, it was “sad” to watch “all the movement of her hands, and the craziness.”

“That’s a person who’s got problems,” the president said.
