“Like everyone else – we get our information in the media,” Pelosi said in an interview with CBS ‘Face the Nation’.
“But in terms of inheritance, it’s an ongoing process. Sadly at this point, it comes to the fore.”
Pelosi said Sunday that doctors treating Trump must provide reliable information to the public.
“We have to have faith in the verdict of the doctors who are treating him, they are not just giving a presentation – notice, when they give a presentation to the press, it has to be approved by the president,” she added, adding: “This is not very scientific.”
While Walter Reed was in office, Trump stepped into ongoing coronavirus stimulus talks, tweeting on Saturday, “Our Great USA Wants & Needs Stimulus. Work Together and Get. Thank You!”
When asked about the President’s message, Pelosi said Democrats “want to see what they can do to stop the virus so that we can open the economy and open our schools safely.”
Pelosi met with Treasury Secretary Steven Munuchin last week in an effort to reach an agreement on an additional aid package to respond to the coronavirus epidemic. Although Pelosi and Munuchin continued to negotiate, that effort stalled.
House Democrats, who are unlikely to be considered in the Republican Senate, voted Thursday night to approve their own package.
Explaining the Democrats’ position, Pelosi said, “You can’t say we need to – we have to do something, but we’re going to run the virus for free.”
“Now, it runs for free even in the White House,” she said. “Think of how it’s in poor neighborhoods, where the president insists that children actually go to school to get the funding he recommends.”
