Pelosi: Trump's comments on foreign election interference 'appalling'

Pelosi downplayed the fact that she reportedly said Trump should be in prison - potentially the catalyst for the president's attack - while he was on his official state visit to the UK.

The President lashed out at Pelosi over the "prison" comments last Thursday in an interview with Fox News, calling her a "nasty, vindictive, terrible person".

"He does not know the difference between right and wrong", she continued, "and that's probably the nicest thing I can say about him". "I call her nervous Nancy, she's a nervous wreck".

Pelosi noted that she had declined to criticize Trump during a television interview in France because she does not criticize the president when overseas.

Democrats have gone after the president for this and will probably try to use this for impeachment purposes. "I don't even want to talk about him".


Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., reflects on bills that have passed the House but die in the Senate because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., does not bring them up for a vote, during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 13, 2019.

"If now isn't the time ... what is the bar, what is the line that we're waiting to be crossed for an impeachment inquiry, and so far it doesn't seem like there is one", the New York Democrat said.

And so far, only one Republican lawmaker in Congress has indicated they would support an impeachment inquiry: Justin Amash of MI.

Pelosi: "Everybody in the country should be totally appalled by what the president said last night".

"I'll simply say all options are on the table, that's all I'm going to say publicly", Nadler told reports on Tuesday when asked about possibly supporting impeachment proceedings.
