‘He’s Afraid’: Nancy Pelosi Just Brutally Belittled Trump After Feud Over ‘Cover-Up’ – Watch
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke to reporters on Thursday after a feud-filled Wednesday between her and Donald Trump.
Pelosi was questioned over what triggered Trump to throw a tantrum after she had accused him of a “cover-up.”
She said that that she and Sen. Chuck Schumer got a letter saying that Trump would rather work on the “new” NAFTA bill over infrastructure, but they still met at the White House the day following.
But when it came to her interview with the Center for American Progress where Pelosi said the word “cover-up,” she said it was clear he was “afraid of being accused” of it.
“I really think that what he knew the court decision was getting into territory he did not want to be touched and they did not allow the Mueller investigation to go into the president’s personal finances, so it was a setback for him,” Pelosi said. “And [he] must have known the Deutsche Bank decision would be consistent, but in any event, to inoculate against its presentation, he pulled a stunt.”
She went on to say she believed Trump has “a bag of tricks” to manipulate officials and the media on certain occasions and she wasn’t sure if that’s what happened yesterday, but she noted he’s a “master of distraction.”
“We will all agree on that. That’s something he does well, to distract from problems that he has,” she continued. “He changes, tries to change the subject. And while he tried to say it’s because I said cover-up, we have been saying cover-up for a while.”
“I think what happened, he said it’s because of cover-up, and that strikes a chord with him,” she said.
