Trump calls Pelosi an “animal” over impeachment

Former President Trump late Monday called Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is an “animal” because she twice voted to impeach him.

Trump made the comments at a rally in Dayton, Ohio, criticizing Democrats’ immigration policies and a crime committed by a member of the MS-13 gang, whom he also called an animal.

“Of course, I think she’s an animal too, you want to know the truth,” Trump said. “They’ll say, ‘Oh, what a terrible thing he said about Nancy’ – she called me off twice for nothing.

He also condemned “what she is doing to this country” and the “turmoil” she has caused.

Trump has been impeached twice by the House of Representatives during his presidency, the first time in 2019 following an investigation into whether he threatened to cut off US aid to Ukraine unless the country opened an investigation into President Biden and his son, and the second time in 2021 for his role in January. 6, 2021, uprising. The votes in the Senate to convict him were insufficient in both cases.

Trump’s latest comments come two weeks after Pelosi’s husband, Paul, was seriously injured when a man broke into their San Francisco home and hit him with a hammer. Paul Pelosi was hospitalized with a fractured skull and injuries to his arm and hand.

The man reportedly asked, “Where’s Nancy?” when he confronted Paul Pelosi and intended to detain and question her, according to law enforcement officials.

Members of both parties, including Trump, condemned the attack, but some Republicans faced criticism afterward for downplaying or mocking it, including Donald Trump Jr.

Former President Trump called the attack is a “terrible thing” in an interview late last month.

Nancy Pelosi said in interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday that the attack on her husband will affect her decision on whether to retire from Congress if Democrats lose control of the House in Tuesday’s election.

Trump too teased “a very big announcement” near the end of his rally, which he said will take place on November 15 at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. He has repeatedly hinted at plans to make another run for the White House and was expected to announce shortly after Tuesday’s midterm elections.
