“I’m done with him,” she said at an event on fiscal policy hosted by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation.
“I don’t even want to talk about it.”
The Speaker added, “My stock goes up every time he attacks me.”
During a Fox News interview last week while in Normandy, France, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, Trump called Pelosi a “nasty, vindictive, horrible person” and a “disgrace.”
Pelosi, who was also in Normandy last week, said that when she is on Congressional delegation trips overseas, she doesn’t criticize the president.
Trump, however, “took a different tact,” Pelosi said.
The Speaker called Trump the “diverter of attention in chief” who wants to distract from his own behavior on issues such as trade.
“What bothers me more is that we’re talking about that instead of how to reduce the national debt,” the speaker said.
While in Normandy, Trump called Pelosi a “disaster” over her handling of a possible impeachment inquiry.
