Trump Claims Pelosi Has ‘A Lot of Mental Problems’ When Discussing COVID-19 Relief

President Donald Trump is blasting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), claiming she has “a lot of mental problems.”

The president said during Thursday’s phone call interview with Fox Business’ Stuart Varney that Pelosi “doesn’t want to give anything. She thinks it helps her with the election and I don’t think so. … We’re not holding it up. She is holding it up.”

Asked if he would pick up the phone to call the House speaker, Trump responded, “Sure I would. But I know my people. I know life. She’s got a lot of problems, she’s got a lot of mental problems and it’s going to be very hard to do anything with her.”

Though Trump claimed Pelosi is the one holding up COVID-19 relief, the president ended negotiations on another relief bill last week. However, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Pelosi have been in discussion this week over a stimulus bill.

While the Trump administration has proposed a $1.8 trillion bill, Pelosi is looking for a $2.2 trillion aid package. Mnuchin, though, indicated on Wednesday he thinks reaching a deal before the Nov. 3 election would be hard.

Trump also said during the Fox Business interview that he would be open to raising the offer of the $1.8 trillion aid package.

He continued, “China will pay us back in one form or another….I would pay more. I would go higher. Go big or go home.”

Though he believes it will be difficult to get a deal done before the 2020 presidential election, Mnuchin indicated on Thursday morning, “We’re going to keep trying.”

The Treasury secretary also told CNBC, “When I speak to Pelosi today I’m going to tell her that we’re not going to let the testing issue stand in the way, that we’ll fundamentally agree with their testing language subject to some minor issues. This issue is being overblown.”
