Trump Calls Nancy Pelosi “Crazy” After She Calls Out Trump’s “Temper Tantrum”

HeadlineMay 24, 2019

President Trump and his political allies launched an attack on Nancy Pelosi Thursday, calling the Democratic House Speaker “crazy.” Trump spoke one day after he left a White House meeting with Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer in a staged walkout, demanding Congress end investigations into his presidency.

President Donald Trump: “So I walked into the Cabinet Room. You had the group—crying Chuck, crazy Nancy. I tell you what, I’ve been watching her, and I have—I have been watching her for a long period of time. She’s not the same person. She’s lost it.”

Trump’s attack on the House speaker came after Pelosi accused Trump of throwing a “temper tantrum” during Wednesday’s aborted meeting at the White House.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “Another temper tantrum. Again, I pray for the president of the United States. I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention, for the good of the country.”
