U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday blasted President Donald Trump's comments saying that he would take assistance from a foreign entity ahead of the 2020 election but stopped short of saying they could trigger impeachment.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump.

He added that Trump would get into a war to "improve his standing and to make him feel like he's a man", which would lead to the deaths of American soldiers.

The President lashed out at Pelosi over the "prison" comments last Thursday in an interview with Fox News, calling her a "nasty, vindictive, frightful person".

"I don't even want to talk about him", she said".

"I just consider the source".

Warriors' Thompson tore ACL in Game 6, agent says
He hit both attempts and then went to the locker room after DeMarcus Cousins fouled to give him a chance to get off the court. Thompson was leading the Warriors with 30 points in the game at the time of his injury and finished as their leading scorer.

"My stock goes up every time he attacks me, so what can I say, but let's not spend too much time on that because that's his victory, the diverter-in-chief, the diverter-of-attention-in-chief".

"I'll simply say all options are on the table, that's all I'm going to say publicly", Nadler told reports on Tuesday when asked about possibly supporting impeachment proceedings. "We're not done with her".

"I think she's a disgrace", Trump said "I actually don't think she's a talented person, I've tried to be nice to her because I would have liked to have gotten some deals done". "We'll see how long that holds up". Mueller has previously said it would be inappropriate to speak further on his report on the probe into allegations of Trump-Russia collusion.

"What bothers me more is that we're talking about that (Trump's insults) instead of how to reduce national debt", Pelosi said at the conference on Tuesday.

"When you say that you will violate the law and take information from foreign powers - which is against the law - it shows you cannot be president because you can't faithfully execute the office which is the oath you take", the Tennessee Democrat said. Trump last month torpedoed a meeting with Democrats on infrastructure, saying he could not work with them as long as they were conducting multiple investigations of him.

The Hill noted Pelosi was also in France to commemorate the D-Day anniversary.
