House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) slammed President Trump for calling reports about Russia bounties a hoax, saying that Trump “himself is a hoax.”
In an interview with “MSNBC Live,” Pelosi was asked about Trump’s claim that the New York Times story is “just another hoax” with its recently published story that reported the president was briefed about intelligence that Russia had placed bounties on the lives of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.
“He uses a hoax because he’ll say this is a hoax, and it’s a hoax that they are 24/7 trying to disrupt our election, as they did in 2016,” Pelosi responded. “He says that coronavirus is a hoax. The fact is the president himself is a hoax.”
