Pelosi says negotiations with President Trump are not a ‘good use of time’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) indicated during a Monday appearance on MSNBC’s “Live” that she has abruptly quit negotiating directly with President Trump because she doesn’t “find it a good use of time.”

Pelosi has taken intense heat for her refusal to compromise on a COVID-19 economic relief bill while still railing against Trump’s handling of the virus and its economic fallout.

However, she appears to be defiant in the face of criticism, doubling down on her controversial position.

“Live” host Craig Melvin questioned Pelosi about the apparent breakdown of communication between her and President Trump:

Madame Speaker, with all due respect, you just said “forget him,” talking about the president. You haven’t talked to him about the wildfires. I get the impression you probably haven’t talked to him about the coronavirus relief bill. Have you and the president just stopped talking? Is that where we are?

Pelosi admitted that she’s “spoken to his representatives,” referring to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and likely White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. “[Trump] says that they speak for him. I take that to be true about the secretary of the treasury. We had worked together.”

The California representative continued to slam President Trump:

Quite frankly, my experience with the president is it hasn’t been on the level. You know, he’ll say something, then it doesn’t really happen. So in the interest of time, we’ll work with who he sends over.

She implied that direct negotiations with President Trump are a waste of time, and accused him of misleading her in the past about his intentions to sign her proposals.

“But on TV a number of times, the president said, ‘You send me a bipartisan immigration bill, and I will sign it,’ and then walks away,” she claimed. “You wonder who is in charge there if he says that and then walks away from it. So I don’t find it a good use of time, but I do know that the Congress and the executive branch need to work together to get the job done.”

  1. It is very obvious who the problem is & it is not Trump! Pelosi & the Dems have done nothing except fight Trump all the way. When the bottom fell out of the market when Covid first started, my trust fund dropped over 50,000 in just a couple of months. It has been doing nothing but coming back more & more every month & right at the moment it is worth more than it was before Covid started. OK Nancy, how do you explain that? You are making false statements.
    Pelosi states direct negotiations with the President are a waste of time! Really!!! Let’s not blame this on Trump. Pelosi, even if you felt what he was saying was beneficial, because you despise him you will totally disagree. It is high time you remove yourself from office. You are a cancer to the American people & to our country!!!
