President Donald Trump’s reluctance to go after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) with the same verve he goes after other Democrats is well documented.

At a Friday press conference, he offered a mild jab at his political opponent.

“Nancy Pelosi should be ashamed of herself because she’s hurting a lot of people,” Trump said. “Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.”

Later during the press conference, he added: “She doesn’t have a clue.”

Trump also said multiple times during his remarks that the bipartisan commission’s attempts to find funding compromise before February 15 are fruitless, as he seems to be gearing up to declare a national emergency.
