War of words: Trump vs. Pelosi

(NBC News) President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi traded insults Thursday after the president walked out a White House meeting with top Democrats the day before.

Speaking to members of the media Thursday, Speaker Pelosi called the president’s walk-out a “temper tantrum” and questioned his fitness to remain in office.

“I wish him and his family, his administration and staff would have an intervention,” said Pelosi.
