President Trump predicted that “Nervous Nancy” will be “overthrown” after the House speaker appeared on a Fox News show and criticized his “weak” leadership during the coronavirus crisis.
“Nervous Nancy is an inherently ‘dumb’ person. She wasted all of her time on the Impeachment Hoax. She will be overthrown, either by inside or out, just like her last time as ‘Speaker,’” the president tweeted on Sunday. “Wallace &@FoxNews are on a bad path, watch!”
He linked to a tweet from the Republican Party that accused Pelosi of playing politics by holding up refunding a loan program for small businesses, while noting her appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”
“When the #PaycheckProtectionProgram ran out of funding, she decided playing politics was more important than saving #SmallBiz. It is time for the Democrats to be held accountable for putting millions in financial limbo,” the GOP tweet said.
Pelosi, in her first interview on “Fox News Sunday” since 2017, said she would give Trump an “F” for his “weak” leadership during the pandemic.
“Leaders — leaders take responsibility. So I said he’s a weak leader. He doesn’t take responsibility. He places blame — blame on others,” Pelosi told host Chris Wallace.
“And that might have been OK before, but we cannot continue down a path that is, again I’ll come back to science, science, science, evidence, data on how we should go forward.”
Pelosi, who launched the impeachment inquiry into Trump in September 2019, told Wallace that she believes Congress will “come to an agreement” on refunding the small business loan program that went broke last week.
Pelosi lost the speakership in 2011 when Republicans won a majority in the 2010 elections.
