After a interview Sunday morning between Chris Wallace and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President Trump wrote that “Wallace & Fox News are on a bad path”
Trump was responding to a tweet from the GOP’s twitter account which said
“Today, Nancy Pelosi is appearing on Fox News Sunday. When the #PaycheckProtectionProgram ran out of funding, she decided playing politics was more important than saving #SmallBiz. It is time for the Democrats to be held accountable for putting millions in financial limbo.”
Nervous Nancy is an inherently “dumb” person. She wasted all of her time on the Impeachment Hoax. She will be overthrown, either by inside or out, just like her last time as “Speaker”. Wallace & @FoxNews are on a bad path, watch! https://t.co/nkEj5YeRjb

During her appearance on Fox News, Pelosi claimed Trump deserves an “F” for testing.
The President has announced plans to reopen the country. @SpeakerPelosi says there hasn’t been enough testing: “We’re way late on it. And that is the failure. President gets an “F” a failure on the testing.”

Pelosi was also put on the spot by Chris Wallace and asked to explain her own controversial remarks about Chinatown on February 24th.
“If the president underplayed the threat in the early days, Speaker Pelosi, didn’t you as well?” Wallace asked.
Pelosi refused to admit any fault, responding “No! What we were trying to do is end the discrimination, the stigma that was going out against the Asian-American community and in fact, if you will look, the record will show that our Chinatown has been a model of containing and preventing the virus, and I’m confident in our folks there and thought it was necessary to offset some of the things that the president and others were saying about Asian-Americans and making them a target. A target of violence across the country.”
Wallace pressed again, to which Pelosi doubled down on her explanation, saying “No, I was saying that you should not discriminate against – discriminate against Chinese-Americans, as some in our administration were doing, by the way, they were labeling the flu and that. No, indeed. And again, I think you – if you check the record, and it’s current, you will see that Chinatown has been a model in all of this and that’s what we’re saying, look to them for answers. Don’t look to them to place blame.”
