President Donald Trump just spoke out to mock House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she snapped at a reporter and claimed that she does not hate the president. Trump took to Twitter to say that he does not believe Pelosi’s claims that she does not dislike him.
“Nancy Pelosi just had a nervous fit. She hates that we will soon have 182 great new judges and sooo much more. Stock Market and employment records. She says she ‘prays for the President.’ I don’t believe her, not even close. Help the homeless in your district Nancy. USMCA?” Trump tweeted, according to Breitbart.

Objective reporting for the educated American.
This came immediately after Pelosi snapped at a reporter who asked if her “hatred” for Trump caused her to direct the House Judiciary Committee to begin drawing up articles of impeachment.
“I don’t hate anybody. I was raised in a Catholic house, we don’t hate anybody — not anybody in the world. So don’t you accuse me of any [hate],” Pelosi said. “As a Catholic, I resent you using the word ‘hate’ in a sentence that addresses me. I pray for the president all the time. So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”

After saying that “no one is above the law,” Pelosi asked the committee chairmen investigating President Trump to go ahead with articles of impeachment.
“The president leaves us no choice but to act,” Pelosi said. “Today, I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment.”
Pelosi went on to claim that the “facts are uncontested” that Trump sought to gain personal political benefits through the abuse of his presidential power.
“If we allow a president to be above the law, we do so at the peril of our republic,” she said.
After Pelosi made these comments, the House Judiciary Committee announced that they will receive evidence against Trump from investigators at a hearing Monday, which is a major step in finalizing the articles of impeachment.
