The Commander-in-Chief was speaking with CBS News before Sunday’s Super Bowl kick-off when he was asked to comment on his ongoing budget feud with congressional Democrats.

“I think she was very rigid, but I think she’s very bad for our country. She knows that we need a barrier, she knows that we need border security, she wanted to win a political point,” said Trump.
“Basically, she wants open borders, she doesn’t mind human trafficking or she wouldn’t do this. She’s costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because we have a porous border,” he added.
'NO BIG DEAL': Pelosi Refuses to Condemn Colleague Who Called Trump ‘Motherf***er’
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn a fellow Democrat who viciously called President Trump a ‘motherf***er’ just hours after being sworn in; saying “I’m not in the censorship business.”
Pelosi was asked to comment on Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s fiery speech at an event hosted by MoveOn.org Thursday night; telling a crowd of supporters the Democrats are “going to impeach that motherf***er!”
“I probably have a generational reaction to it,” Pelosi said. “But in any event, I’m not in the censorship business. I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language. I don’t … establish any language standards for my colleagues, but I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said.”
“Generationally, that would not be language I would use, but nonetheless, I don’t think we should make a big deal of it,” she added.
