(CNSNews.com) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said on MSNBC on Monday that where the Trump administration is standing on negotiations for another COVID-19 relief bill is “an insult to the intelligence of the American people.”
“That’s why Senator Schumer and I, Leader Schumer and I, agreed to come down $1 trillion if they went up $1 trillion,” said Pelosi.
“Then we went further and said, ‘We’ll meet you halfway,’” she said. “But, where they are in all of this is an insult to the intelligence of the American people and an anti-science, anti-fight against the coronavirus.”
Here is a transcript of the part of Pelosi’s interview with MSNBC where she says the Trump administration’s position is “an insult to the intelligence of the American people:”
Nancy Pelosi: “But to your point, yes, we all know that we need to come to agreement. Coming to agreement is not, though, to say, ‘What’s the least we can do? Let’s ignore the states. Let’s ignore the need for the testing. Let’s ignore the hunger. Let’s ignore the evictions.’
“I heard the Secretary this morning – of the Treasury saying, ‘Everything is great. The brightest spot in all of this is the housing market.’ No, millions of families are on the verge of eviction. The President says he wants a moratorium, but a moratorium without money doesn’t really help. It certainly doesn’t help the landlords who will face foreclosure. So, we have our differences, but we also have our responsibility to find common ground.
“That’s why Senator Schumer and I, Leader Schumer and I, agreed to come down $1 trillion if they went up $1 trillion. Then we went further and said, ‘We’ll meet you halfway.’ But, where they are in all of this is an insult to the intelligence of the American people and an anti-science, anti-fight against the coronavirus.”
