Trump: 'Nancy Pelosi Has Lost Her Mind'
President says Democratic House speaker 'should go back home to San Francisco'
President Donald Trump blasted Nancy Pelosi, declaring that the Democratic House speaker "has lost her mind" and "should go back home to San Francisco."
Trump shredded Pelosi over the Democrats' impeachment push while speaking to reporters on the White House South Lawn on Sunday.
The president also said Speaker Pelosi should return home because her California congressional district “is going to hell.”
“I think Nancy Pelosi has lost her mind, and I think frankly she should go back home to San Francisco,” Trump said after returning to the White House from New York.
“If you look at what’s happening to her district. Her district is going to hell.”

The president cited “homeless they’re not taking care of … needles all over the streets … with horrible things being washed into the Pacific Ocean.”
“All she thinks about is impeachment. But she doesn’t want to impeach,” he said.
"You know who wants to impeach? The people that run the party, the radical left."

Pelosi, a California Democrat, opened the impeachment inquiry against Trump in September after a "whistleblower" complaint about a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
During the conversation with Zelensky, Trump discussed allegations of corruption regarding Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Democrats claim Trump paused nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine to get Zelensky to investigate Biden.
Asked if there was any quid pro quo, Trump said, “read the transcript.”
On Friday, during his packed-out Mississippi rally, Trump shredded House Democrats over their Thursday vote to begin impeachment proceedings against him.
“Yesterday’s vote by the radical Democrats is an attack on democracy itself,” Trump said.
"While we're creating jobs and killing terrorists, the Democrat party has gone completely insane," Trump declared while touting Friday's blockbuster jobs report and the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
"They've been plotting to overthrow the election since I won," Trump added.
