WASHINGTON, D.C. — Although its long been known that there is no love lost between Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi, the war between the two has progressed after President Trump slammed the California Democrat as “incompetent”.
Trump’s remarks came in response to Pelosi’s allegation on ABC’s “This Week” that the Trump administration has “done nothing except put Wall Street first, make America sick again, instill fear in our immigration population in our country and make sure Russia maintains its grip on our foreign policy.”
Never one to back down from an insult, Trump responded with a trademark jab.
“Well, I’ve been watching Nancy’s tape, and so I think she’s incompetent, actually,” Trump said during an interview with “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday. “You know, if you look at what’s going on with the Democrats and the party, it’s getting smaller and smaller.”
Trump’s reference to the Democratic party are in response to the recent election that handed Republicans control of the White House, Senate and House of Representatives.
“You know, in a certain way, I hate to see it, because I like a two-party system, and we’re soon going to have a one-party system,” Trump said. “I actually think a two-party system is healthy and good, but she’s done a terrible job.”
Asked about Pelosi’s accusations that Trump hadn’t accomplished anything significant during his first few weeks in office, Trump said Pelosi is not a good spokesman when it comes to getting things done.
“She’s certainly wrong,” said Trump, whose wealth of executive orders have prompted both criticism and support from the American people. “There are those that say I’ve done more than anybody in 100 days.”
In response to Trump’s comments, a spokesperson for Pelosi accused Trump of “projecting his incompetence” on the Democratic Minority Leader.
As Leader Pelosi stated yesterday, this President came into office promising bold action on jobs. Forty days later, the American people see nothing but a squandered four weeks in which this President has done nothing but instill fear,” Drew Hammill said. “In classic fashion, the President is projecting his incompetence on to others. Instead of calling people names, President Trump should focus on how he’s going to grow the American economy and live up to the promises he’s made to the American people.”
Trump and Pelosi are scheduled to square off on Tuesday evening as President Trump addresses a joint session of Congress where he is expected to address his new administration’s fiscal agenda.
