House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) scored a major political victory over President Donald Trump, and MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski said she should turn up the pressure on him.


Trump agreed to sign a temporary funding bill Friday and end the government shutdown, and the "Morning Joe" co-host said Pelosi had no reason to negotiate with the president to fund his border wall.

"She cannot let the pressure off him, she's got to keep things pretty tight and be pretty tough and only let up when she's got him cornered into a deal," Brzezinski said.

"He has proven time and time again not to be trustworthy and to veer off into many different directions that have been destructive, that he's not kept his word," Brzezinski added. "I don't think she can negotiate publicly on Twitter with him or try to get an inch. I don't think she can, he's not someone who plays fair."
