Trump always loses when he fights with Pelosi. He's taking his chances with even more negative public opinion.

Trump is right again, peelousy is sick and has mental problems hell, it’s even affecting her speech, she stammers and stutters and repeats herself constantly, probably dementia kicking in, maybe she can self diagnose herself since she’s claiming to be a doctor. She’s telling everybody she can that Hydroxychloroquine will kill you if you so much as look at it. She wants people to die instead of taking a prescribed drug from a doctor just because Trump said it could work and is working. #taketheredpill
