Tensions between Pelosi and Trump rise

News

Ever since the release of the redacted version of the US Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on nearly two-year long investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections Democrats have been trying to conduct their own investigations into Donald Trump’s presidency.

The tensions between the White House and Congress have drawn to a head over the past week when President Trump walked out of the meeting with the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats after only three minutes.

The feud between Pelosi and Trump “shows no sign of waning 18 months before the 2020 elections,” The Washington Post reported Saturday. Those supporting Pelosi say that she exposed president’s “childishness,” which proves that Trump is clearly no fit for being a president, while Trump’s allies claim that Pelosi is “not exactly the most articulate person in the world.” “The last couple of weeks, she’s been talking funny,” said Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer.

”I’ve noticed it, and a lot of other people have noticed it,” he added.

Earlier this week Pelosi accused Trump of being engaged in a “cover up” and throwing a “tantrum,” the very next day she suggested that White House staffers and president’s family “should stage an intervention for the good of the country.” Commenting on that statement Trump called her “crazy Nancy” and posted a video of her “stammers through news conference” on his Twitter.

Giuliani said that Pelosi spoke about Trump “like he’s incompetent.” “It’s totally ridiculous.” he said, “You may not like him, you may despise him, but there’s no question he is mentally and physically capable to do his job.”

Everything said and done raises tensions between Trump and Pelosi, the White House and Congress, and the fights promise to loom large.
