House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) applauded members of her party on Wednesday for showing “dignity” during President Donald Trump's address Tuesday evening to a joint session of Congress.
"I was very proud of the dignity with which our members listened to a speech," Pelosi said during an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
She said Trump’s remarks were “clearly a bait-and-switch speech.”
And the president talks a good talk. But the fact is, is that show us, three months, almost three months since he's been elected, 41 days since he has been president, and we still haven't seen what — we're legislators. So if you want to talk, show us your proposal and we go from there.
The former speaker of the House said the president offered an “assault” on public education and said nothing “positive” about immigration during his remarks. Pelosi did acknowledge there is potential for Democrats to be able to work with Trump on his $1 trillion infrastructure plan.
Some Democratic lawmakers — including Pelosi — were criticized for appearing to remain seated and refraining from applause while Trump honored Carryn Owens, the widow of a slain U.S. Navy SEAL William "Ryan" Owens.
