Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she’s “done” with talking about Trump and called him the “diverter in chief,” saying he manufactured controversies to distract attention from more important issues.


“I’m done with him. I don’t even want to talk about him,” Pelosi, a Democrat, said at a Washington conference in reply to a question about Trump’s latest barrage of personal insults.

Last week Trump called Pelosi, the most powerful US Democrat, “a disgrace ... a nasty, vindictive, horrible person.”

At a US war cemetery in France, with the gravestones of fallen soldiers in the background, Trump said in a Fox News interview, “I call her Nervous Nancy ... Nancy Pelosi’s a disaster, okay. She’s a disaster.”

Asked at the conference how she works with Republican Trump when he throws such insults her way, Pelosi said: “I just consider the source. My stock goes up every time he attacks me, so what can I say, but let’s not spend too much time on that because that’s his victory, the diverter-in-chief, the diverter-of-attention-in-chief.”
