At Press Conference, Trump Seeks Validation From Staff That He Isn’t Insane

Trump asked several of his staffers the same question about his behavior during a meeting with Nancy Pelosi.

Recalling a meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President Trump called upon several of his staffers to back up how he carried himself during the interaction.

"Mercedes is right. Kellyanne is right. You were calm," said Larry Kudlow after Trump sought comments from two of his other staffers.

"Very calm. This was definitely not angry or ranting," Sarah Sanders added after Trump asked her the same question he asked three other staffers.

He solicited the validation after calling Pelosi a “mess” that is “doesn’t understand” his U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade proposal.

“I don't think Nancy Pelosi understands the deal, it's too complicated [for her], but it’s not a complicated deal,” Trump said.
