President Trump went on a tear against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday after she reportedly told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler she wants to see him in prison, rather than simply impeached.
Nervous Nancy Pelosi is a disgrace to herself and her family for having made such a disgusting statement, especially since I was with foreign leaders overseas. There is no evidence for such a thing to have been said. Nervous Nancy & Dems are getting Zero work done in Congress....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 7, 2019
...and have no intention of doing anything other than going on a fishing expedition to see if they can find anything on me - both illegal & unprecedented in U.S. history. There was no Collusion - Investigate the Investigators! Go to work on Drug Price Reductions & Infrastructure!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 7, 2019
President Trump was reiterating comments he made during an interview with Fox News' Laura Ingraham Thursday night.
"I think she’s a disgrace. I actually don’t think she’s a talented person, I’ve tried to be nice to her because I would have liked to have gotten some deals done," he said. "She’s incapable of doing deals, she’s a nasty, vindictive, horrible person, the Mueller report came out, it was a disaster for them."
"They thought their good friend Bobby Mueller was going to give them a great report and he came out with a report with 13 horrible, angry Democrats who are totally biased against me," Trump continued. "A couple of them worked for Hillary Clinton, they then added five more, also Democrats, with all of that two and a half years think of it, from before I even got elected they’ve been going after me and they have nothing."
The last meeting Trump and Pelosi had at the White House, which was supposed to be about infrastructure, lasted five minutes after the Speaker accused him of a cover-up on Capitol Hill.
