Trump Is Lying About A Video He Claims Pelosi Deleted From Her Twitter Account. She Never Posted It.





President Trump has falsely accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of deleting a tweeted news clip of her visit to San Francisco’s Chinatown three weeks prior to the shelter-in-place order.

“Crazy Nancy Pelosi deleted this from her Twitter account,” Trump rage tweeted on Thursday.

“She wanted everyone to pack into Chinatown long after I closed the BORDER TO CHINA,” he added. “Based on her statement, she is responsible for many deaths. She’s an incompetent, third-rate politician!”



In response to Trump’s false claim, Pelosi’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Drew Hammill, tweeted: “Fact check: We never posted this video.”

“It’s obviously local TV coverage of the Speaker visiting Chinatown in San Francisco three weeks prior to the shelter-in-place order,” he added.

Hammill added: “Also @sfchronicle: Trump inaccurately says Pelosi called for parties in SF’s Chinatown as coronavirus loomed.”

Pelosi’s press secretary, Taylor Griffin, tweeted: “Let’s be clear: While Trump was still using the racist phrase “Chinese virus” & downplaying the threat of #COVID19, the Speaker was standing in solidarity w/ the SF AAPI community to combat the very bigotry that his rhetoric encouraged—3 wks prior to SF’s shelter-in-place order.”
