At her weekly press conference Thursday morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi followed up on her comments after a failed meeting with the president on Wednesday, suggesting that something is wrong with Trump by calling on his family and friends to hold an intervention.
SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI: What we're telling you about now, infrastructure, the president said "I-word," I thought he was talking about infrastructure roads: bridges, mass transit, I said some of those things already. I thought we could give him the opportunity to make an historic contribution to the safety --because it's a safety measure-- It's the about commerce, safety, mobility product to market, and in addition clean air, clean water. It's about a better future for our country, much needed, billions, trillions of dollars in deficit in terms of low or no maintenance.
It's never been partisan. We don't want it to be partisan now.
But I can only think he wasn't up to the task of figuring out the difficult choices of how to cover the cost of the important infrastructure legislation that we had talked about three weeks before.
So -- so, but the president, again, stormed out. And I think, first -- pound the table. Walk out the door. What? Next time, have the TV cameras in there when I had my say. That didn't work for him either. Now this time, another temper tantrum -- again -- I pray for the president of the United States.
I wish that his family or his administration and staff would have an intervention for the good of the country.
