Pelosi says she's 'done' with Trump after latest insults

Pelosi says she's 'done' with Trump after latest insults

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., says she is not going to spend any additional time discussing comments President Donald Trump made about her last week while overseas, The Hill is reporting. Politico reported last week that Pelosi told her fellow Democrats in a private meeting that she doesn't want to see Trump impeached but she wants "to see him in prison".

At a USA war cemetery in France, with the gravestones of fallen soldiers in the background, Trump said in a Fox News interview, "I call her Nervous Nancy".

Trump lashed out at her in response to that comment during a Fox News interview from the Normandy American Cemetery in France, calling her "a nasty, vindictive, awful person".

On Wednesday, Trump told ABC News in an a televised interview that there was nothing wrong with accepting foreign assistance and he might not report such interference to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"What bothers me more is that we're talking about that (Trump's insults) instead of how to reduce national debt", Pelosi said at the conference on Tuesday. "Do people think there's some impeachable offenses that the President committed? Yes". How serious are they?

"I think she's a disgrace", Trump said "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".

"The first rule of our (congressional delegation) is we never criticise a president of the United States when we are overseas".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump.

However, she said of impeachment: "It's not off the table".

"I think the Mueller report very clearly spells out at least ten or 11 instances of obstruction of justice", Pelosi said.

The House speaker has consistently downplayed the possibility of impeachment and has outlined a high bar for the criteria she would want to see met before moving forward, including that she would want to see bipartisan support. "But I'm not here to have that discussion".
