President Trump on Thursday blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “totally incompetent” after she criticized his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
“She is totally incompetent & controlled by the Radical Left, a weak and pathetic puppet. Come back to Washington and do your job!,” Trump said about the California Democrat in a tweet.
He also quoted Fox News’ Sean Hannity’s comments about Pelosi from his show Wednesday night.
“Crazy ‘Nancy Pelosi, you are a weak person. You are a poor leader. You are the reason America hates career politicians, like yourself.’” Trump wrote on Twitter, quoting Hannity.
Pelosi has faulted Trump for his response to the coronavirus outbreak and for his decision on Tuesday to halt payments to the World Health Organization until his administration can review whether it mishandled early reporting on the pandemic.
She said the United Nations agency is an important asset in the global fight against the coronavirus and called Trump’s actions that of a “weak person, a poor leader, takes no responsibility. A weak person blames others.”
