Pelosi Rips Trump as a ‘Poor Leader,’ Claims He Is Trying to ‘Avoid Responsibility’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says she does not pay attention to President Donald Trump’s tweets about her.

During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Pelosi was asked to respond to a series of tweets Trump sent attacking her for her leadership of House Democrats during the coronavirus outbreak. 

“Frankly, I don’t pay that much attention to the president’s tweets against me. As I’ve said, he’s a poor leader. He’s always trying to avoid responsibility, and assign blame,” she said.

Watch the video below:

Pelosi continued to call for lawmakers to approve more funds for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) as well as more funds for hospitals and first responders. 

Congress adjourned last week after lawmakers were unable to strike a deal on a bill to replenish the PPP — the program designed to give small businesses loans to pay their employees. 

The PPP ran out of funds on Thursday morning, and Senate Republicans were pushing for a bill that would have allocated another $250 billion to the program.

However, Congressional Democrats are pushing for a bill that replenishes the PPP as well as provides extra funding to hospitals and first responders. 

But as it became clear that there was not a deal in sight, the Senate adjourned without trying to approve a PPP replenishment bill. 

Trump blasted Democrats for holding up the bill earlier in the week. He tweeted, “They are killing American small businesses. Stop playing politics Dems! Support Refilling PPP NOW – it is out of funds!”

Pelosi’s comments come as she and Trump have spent the week trading barbs over the government’s handling of the coronavirus, as IJR has previously reported.

  1. Joetta, take a writing class and try to rise above a 1st grade mentality. You are a typical uneducated, hateful Liberal.

  2. “Pelosi continued to call for lawmakers to approve more funds for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) as well as more funds for hospitals and first responders.” Well, she was the one that blocked the bill, now pretends to be for it. More from the lying, cheating, corrupt Democrats.

  3. THAT’S BECAUSE YOU DON.T KNOW HOW TO PAY ATTENTION STUPID! YOU REALLY NEED TO RETIRE AND STAY OUT OF POLITICS FOREVER. DEMENTIA IS WAITING IN THE WINGS FOR YOU AND I THINK IT HAS PARTIALLY ARRIVED ALREADY. WITH 320,000,000+ PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO FATHOM HOW SLEEPY JOE BIDEN IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR ALL OF US. HE IS WORKING ON HIS TRANSITION TEAM NOW AND THE BEST THING THEY WILL DO IS PUT HIM IN A NURSING HOME!!

  4. Good grief what is a Joetta and what is he/she talking about? Juvenile doesn’t even do whatever that was justice. My 7 yo grandchild is more mature. But then it’s obvious Joetta is a democrat.

  5. She has some nerve to accuse Trump of shirking responsibility!! She who didn’t lift a finger to help fight COVID-19 and did nothing but add her special interests – which had nothing to do with the Pandemic except throw roadblocks, quotes out of context, pad important bills with nonsense, and then have the unmitigated gall to show us on vacation how she is eating expensive ice cream out of her expensive refrigerator. What a bitch!!

  6. Rich to hear that witch say Trump isn’t a leader-we’re paying those asshats in congress $16000 a month and she doesn’t plan to call them back until sometime in May? You may be pointing a finger at Trump, but you have 4 fingers pointing back at you, Pelosi!

  7. Trump: Waaaaaaa daddy, someone said I wasn’t using my crayons right, so I told her, no, she’s the one not using her crayons right, but she didn’t even listen to me! So I’m gonna point my finger at the whole class and yell at everyone and say she’s stupid and tell them no more chicken nuggets until they shut up and color the way I say! That’s the way it works, isn’t daddy? Yell it over and over until the kids think it’s true, right?

  8. One of the things that is very apparent to me, the democrats are extremely devious. Pelosi fains in every possible way to make it difficult for Trump to do his job. As I see it they are bound and determined to destroy him at all costs. The people be damned, the economy be damned, along with everything else. If anyone truly believes that these people even have an once of kindness in them is deceived. This is a war, and it’s being fought not just in Washington, it will soon spill over into the streets of America.
