Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump haven’t spoken to each other since October of last year.
The last time the pair had an extended conversation was at a White House meeting on October 16, 2019 that included discussions about the president’s move to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria, The Hill reported.
Trump placed responsibility on former President Barack Obama after Pelosi and Chuck Schumer pushed the president on how to proceed concerning Syria, a Democratic aide said, according to another Hill report.
Schumer said that Trump called Pelosi a “third-rate politician,” the Hill reported, which a White House official later confirmed.
“I don’t speak to the president. I speak to his representative,” Pelosi said to CNN and anchor Wolf Blitzer during an interview. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Steve Scalise Weighs In On Pelosi, Trump Feuds)
“Quite frankly, my experience with the President is it hasn’t been on the level. You know, he’ll say something, then it doesn’t really happen. So, in the interest of time, we’ll work with who he sends over to – if he has their – if they have his confidence, then we’ll work with them on these issues,” Pelosi told
