House Speaker Nancy Pelosi alleged that President Donald Trump is clearly being triggered by accusations of a “cover-up” while also being slammed with investigations into his finances.
During her weekly press briefing, Pelosi recounted the series of events that lead to yesterday’s meltdown in the White House. She said that she and Sen. Chuck Schumer got a letter saying that Trump would rather work on the “new” NAFTA bill over infrastructure, but they still met at the White House the day following.
But when it came to her interview with the Center for American Progress where Pelosi said the word “cover-up,” she said it was clear he was “afraid of being accused” of it.
“I really think that what — he knew the one court decision was getting into territory he did not want to be touched and they did not allow the Mueller investigation to go into the president’s personal finances, so it was a setback for him,” Pelosi said. “And [he] must have known the Deutsche Bank decision would be consistent, but in any event, to inoculate against its presentation, he pulled a stunt.”
She went on to say she believed Trump has “a bag of tricks” to manipulate officials and the media on certain occasions, and she wasn’t sure if that’s what happened yesterday, but she noted he’s a “master of distraction.”
“We will all agree on that. That’s something he does well, to distract from problems that he has,” she continued. “He changes, tries to change the subject. And while he tried to say it’s because I said cover-up, we have been saying cover-up for a while.”
She asked the press to remember Trump’s quote yesterday, “I don’t do cover-ups.”
“I think what happened, he said it’s because of cover-up, and that strikes a chord with him,” she said.

Trump-loving actor hilariously roasted for complaining that a Canadian team won’t visit the White House
Kevin Sorbo, a Trump-loving actor best known for playing Hercules in the TV series "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys," drew instant ridicule this week after he bitterly complained about a Canadian team that wouldn't visit President Donald Trump at the White House.
Earlier this week, Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green said that his team would not accept an invitation to the White House thanks to the behavior of President Donald Trump.
"I try to respect everybody in every field that they do regardless of how crazy things are," Green explained. "But he makes it really hard. He makes it very, very tough to respect how he goes about things and does things. To put it politely, I think it’s a hard no."
Evangelicals wildly chant ‘4 more years’ after Trump claims mothers are ‘executing’ their infants after birth
Speaking at the Faith and Freedom Coalition 2019 Road to Majority Policy Conference in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, President Donald Trump claimed that infants were being "executed" after birth.
"Unfortunately, Democrat politicians have become increasingly hostile to pro-life Americans, who want to help more children find a loving home and share their dreams with the world," Trump told the evangelical crowd.
"Virtually every top Democrat now supports taxpayer-funded abortion right up to the moment of birth. By the way, if you watched Virginia, the governor, after the moment of birth -- that was something that nobody -- that was something that nobody heard of before. After the moment of birth."
Meghan McCain explodes after Whoopi Goldberg compares US record on LGBT rights to Iran
Meghan McCain slammed Iran for its treatment of LGBT people, and she lashed out when Whoopi Goldberg reminded her of the Republican Party's less-than-stellar record on equal rights.
"The View" co-host condemned Iran's harshly oppressive treatment of women and LGBT people, as its leaders engage in an escalating war of words with President Donald Trump.
"When you are a leader of a country that throws gay people off of roofs for being gay, and stone women in the street for wearing tank tops, how dare you judge our country," McCain said.
Goldberg stepped in to say the U.S. didn't have a spotless history in that regard.
