Speaker Pelosi snaps at CNN over COVID stimulus impasse
UPDATED 9:31 AM PT – Wednesday, October 14, 2020
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi became highly defensive when pressed on COVID-19 stimulus negotiations. During an interview with CNN on Tuesday, she was shown a tweet by California Democrat stating she should accept the President’s $1.8 trillion offer for needed relief aid.
The top Democrat accused the network of making excuses for GOP policies and further dismissed talks with the White House to make a deal. Pelosi then continued to spar with anchor Wolf Blitzer until the end of the interview.
