Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to suffer some form of meltdown as she gave a Trump-bashing speech at the US-Mexico border over the weekend.

The senior Democrat can be seen fumbling for words and stuttering her way through the address that was designed to undermine President Trump's push for a wall along the United States Southern Border.

A video of the speech shows Pelosi struggling to speak coherently during a border press conference in Laredo, Texas on Saturday.

Pelosi was at the Southern Border to share a hug with a Mexican official and affirm her opposition to President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration.

The ceremony was sponsored by the Washington’s Birthday Celebration Association of Laredo, which brings together officials from Mexico and the U.S. to promote friendship during an annual event.

“I’ll remember this trip for years to come,” Pelosi wrote on Twitter.

“I love coming here to celebrate,” the House speaker had said earlier, according to The Hill.

According to Western Journal, Saturday’s event came one day after Pelosi helped launch the House Democrats’ effort to fight Trump’s state of emergency declaration.

The House will vote Tuesday on a measure that would block the declaration.

“There isn’t going to be a wall,” Pelosi said during a news conference in Laredo on Friday, according to KSAT.

“The president’s act is lawless and does violence to our Constitution, and therefore, to our democracy,” Pelosi said, the Houston Chronicle reported.

“Not only is he disrespecting the legislative branch and the Constitution of the United States, he is dishonoring the office in which he serves,” she said.

On Saturday, another video showed Pelosi hugging a Mexican official during the International Bridge Ceremony.

Pelosi claimed Trump was seeking to “usurp the power of Congress” in order to spend money.

“Those in the military don’t want the money taken out of their defense budget for a purpose that is clearly not a defense purpose,” she said.

As reported by The Western Journal, Trump has said that if Democrats pass their legislation to block his emergency declaration, he will veto it.

“Declaring a national emergency is a sobering act, which is why Congress enacted a statute governing when and how the president can take this action,” Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins said, according to The New York Times.

“House Democrats’ angst over Congress’s power of the purse is unwarranted, especially since the commander in chief’s authority to redirect military funds for a national emergency is affirmed in a law passed by their own branch,” he added.
