In an interview Monday on 'FOX & Friends,' President Trump reacted to Nancy Pelosi accusing him of fiddling around while people are dying from the coronavirus. Trump said Pelosi is a disgrace to the country and when she says that she prays for him that is not true.
"It’s a sad thing. Look, she’s a sick puppy in my opinion. She really is. She got a lot of problems," Trump said.
"I guess now when she says oh, I pray for the president, I pray for the president so much. Well, I don’t think that’s true. What a statement to make. What a horrible statement to make," he said.
KILMEADE: Right. Mr. President, as I mentioned earlier I remember when Bush 41 and when Bush 43 asked Bush 41 and Clinton to get together I think after some catastrophes people were heartened by it. They saw Democrats, Republicans working together.
When they see you Cuomo working together I think people are heartened by it. But then when you see Speaker Pelosi come out and say President Trump’s denial at the beginning of this was deadly. As the president fiddles, people are dying. What’s your reaction to that?
TRUMP: Well, it’s a sad thing. Look, she’s a sick puppy in my opinion. She really is. She got a lot of problems. And that’s a horrible thing to say, especially when I was the one -- and I’ve gotten from fair people a lot of accolades, and I don’t want the accolades but it’s just serves (ph) of a fact.
When I stopped some very, very infected, very, very sick people, thousands coming in from China long earlier than anybody thought, including the experts. Nobody thought we should do it except me. And I stopped everybody.
We stopped it cold. It had never been done before the history of our country. And Dr. Fauci said the other day if those people came in, if they -- if I didn’t do that, you would’ve had deaths like you --
TRUMP: -- had never seen before. And she doesn’t mention that and that was early. Don’t forget she was playing the impeachment game, her game where she ended up looking like a fool. She was doing nothing but -- all she did for the first long time was impeach, impeaches went on for years. I mean if you think about it, that’s all she did.
She didn’t do anything. She couldn’t get bills passed. She’s controlled by the radical left, by AOC plus three. And for her to make a statement like that, I saw that, I thought it was a disgrace, I think it’s a disgrace to her country, her family.
I think it shouldn’t be. And I guess now when she says oh, I pray for the president, I pray for the president so much. Well, I don’t think that’s true. What a statement to make. What a horrible statement to make.
