Former President Donald Trump blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for not pushing forward a bill to stop Congress members from trading stocks.
The comments came during Trump's remarks at his rally in Mesa, Arizona, over the weekend.

"Look at her stocks. I mean, she did better than Warren Buffett. I don't know about her husband. I don't know who the hell's running that deal," Trump said regarding Pelosi.
"And now she doesn't want to change it, where they're allowed to get inside information," he added.

The bill was introduced earlier this year, but was pushed off until after the November midterms. In addition to Pelosi's stocks, her husband is a stockbroker who has made millions of dollars in stock trading.
The latest slam of Pelosi's long-time involvement in stock trading while serving in Congress is part of an ongoing concern of lawmakers in both parties and Pelosi in particular. Despite the House speaker's talk of moving forward with the bill, no action has been taken, leaving the current system in place that appears to have been widely abused.
