Donald Trump refused to directly respond to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s criticism over his decision to take an unproven malaria drug to prevent coronavirus because he is “morbidly obese,” but minutes later he accused her of having “mental problems.”
“I don’t respond to her,” the president told reporters on Capitol Hill. “I think she’s a waste of time.”
Later in his comments to reporters, Mr Trump said: “Pelosi is a sick woman. She’s got a lot of problems, a lot of mental problems.”
