Nancy Pelosi: I'll Pull Trump Out of the White House ‘By His Hair’
'I’m counting down the hours ‘til he’s gone'
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she is "counting down the hours" until President Donald Trump leaves the White House.
Rep. Pelosi (D-CA) said she planned to "pull him out of there by his hair during a meeting with her leadership team."
“I’m counting down the hours ‘til he’s gone," Pelosi said.
"I plan to pull him out of there by his hair, his little hands, and his feet,” Pelosi said, Politico reported.
The House Speaker remarks came as Democrats and Republicans negotiated a massive 5,593 $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief funding bill.
Pelosi and Trump have not spoken for over a year after she accused the president of having a “meltdown” during an October 2019 meeting at the White House.
Trump has frequently referred to the House Speaker as “crazy Nancy” and “nuts” and even “crazy as a bedbug.”
Most of the negotiating with House Democrats was made by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.

When Trump was asked in September why he stopped talking to Pelosi over the coronavirus relief bill, he said:
“I am taking the high road."
“I’m taking the high road by not seeing them. That’s the high road.”
Earlier this year, Pelosi said Trump would be leaving the White House in November, even if "if he has to be fumigated."
At the time, Pelosi asserted Trump would be leaving the White House, “whether he knows it yet or not,” even if he “has to be fumigated.”
Hillary Clinton also warned the United States needs to 'be ready' if Trump refuses to leave the White House.
"Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he's going to go quietly or not," she said.
"And we have to be ready for that."
