“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!” tweeted Trump.

Hours before the law’s passage, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi slammed the legislation; saying the new tax cuts would spark “Armageddon,” adding that it would bring about “the end of the world” for hard-working American families.
COLLUSION DELUSION: Unhinged Pelosi Calls FISA MEMO ‘Bouquet to Putin’
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi didn’t hold back while commenting on the House Intelligence Committee’s decision to disclose the explosive FISA memo on Friday; releasing a bizarre statement that referred to the document as a “bouquet to [Trump’s] friend Putin.”
Pelosi posted her official statement to social media within minutes of Chairman Devin Nunes’ decision to disclose the controversial material to the American public; saying the President “surrendered his constitutional responsibility” when he de-classified the document.
“President Trump has surrendered his constitutional responsibility as Commander-in-Chief by releasing highly classified and distorted intelligence. By not protecting intelligence sources and methods, he just sent his friend Putin a bouquet,” she writes.
“As the Speaker and former Vice Presidential candidate, Speaker Ryan knows how dangerous it is to jeopardize our intelligence and national security. Why is he enabling this recklessness and not taking action to remove Chairman Nunes?” Nancy asked.
