“How would I describe him? I think that he describes himself on a daily basis and — I think that there’s nobody in the country who knows better that he should not be president of the United States than Donald Trump,” Pelosi told CBS’s Lesley Stahl in an interview on “60 Minutes” on Sunday.

In the same interview, Pelosi reiterated her commitment to working with Trump where possible, saying he is “not worth the trouble of saying you’re so horrible we can’t work together.”

The interview prompted a direct attack on Pelosi from Trump, who decried it as a “puff piece” on Twitter on Sunday evening.

“All they do is Investigate, as it turns out, crimes that they instigated & committed. The Mueller No Collusion decision wasn’t even discussed-and she was a disaster at W.H.,” Trump tweeted.
