President Donald Trump declared himself to be “an extremely stable genius” just hours after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi openly questioned his fitness to remain in office Thursday, suggesting a Trump staff or family “intervention” for the good of the nation after his dramatic Wednesday “temper tantrum” at a White House meeting with Democrats.
“She’s a mess,” Trump said during remarks at a farmers’ event at the White House.
“Cryin’ Chuck, Crazy Nancy … I watched Nancy and she was all crazy yesterday,” he claimed.
Trump also took a shot at Pelosi’s intelligence, claiming that his re-negotiated trade deal with Canada and Mexico is so complex that Pelosi can’t understand it.
“I don’t think Nancy Pelosi understands the deal, it’s too complicated. But it’s not a complicated deal,” Trump said.
Trump claimed “many” Democrats have informed the White House they plan to support the US Mexico-Canada Agreement, USMCA, “regardless of leadership.”
Trump later declared, “I’m an extremely stable genius.”

UPDATE: Pelosi responded to Trump’s attacks in a tweet Thursday: “When the ‘extremely stable genius’ starts acting more presidential, I’ll be happy to work with him on infrastructure, trade and other issues.”
