During Pelosi’s interview, she said that despite what she called Trump’s “assault on the Constitution,” she remained confident congressional Democrats could work with him. 

"He's not worth the trouble of saying you're so horrible we can't work together. No, we need to work together," she told Stahl. "I think our future is strong enough — built on a strong foundation to withstand everything, including the current occupant of the White House."
