House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday for the second time in a week that she will offer prayers for President Donald Trump.
The House speaker promised to pray for the president and expressed concern for the president’s well being, referencing Trump’s abrupt departure from a meeting with Democratic leaders.
“Again, I pray for the President of the United States,” Pelosi said Thursday on Capitol Hill. “I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country.”
Pelosi also said Wednesday that she intended to pray for Trump after a surprise press conference where Trump demanded Democrats stop investigating him and accusing his administration of Russian collusion.
The president left an infrastructure meeting and said he would not continue negotiating with the Democrats until they ceased their investigations. This followed Pelosi’s Wednesday statement at a press conference that Trump is involved in a “cover-up.”
“Maybe it was lack of confidence on his part that he really couldn’t match the greatness of the challenge that we have — wasn’t really respectful of the Congress and the White House working together. He just took a pass,” Pelosi said in the press conference that morning. “It just makes me wonder why he did that. In any event, I pray for the President of the United States.”
