Trump also nicknamed Pelosi “Nasty Nancy,” saying she “is a disaster, OK? She’s a disaster. Let her do what she wants. You know what? I think they’re in big trouble.”

The battle between Trump and Pelosi has been intensifying since the release of special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerMueller report fades from political conversation Trump calls for probe of Obama book deal Democrats express private disappointment with Mueller testimony MORE's report. But Trump's attacks on Pelosi were notable given his interview with Ingraham took place during a visit to Normandy, France, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landing. 

Pelosi, who was also in Normandy, refused to criticize Trump or talk about impeachment when pressed by reporters at the event, saying she doesn’t “talk about the president while I’m out of the country. That’s my principle.” 

Trump has claimed vindication from the report since it did not recommend charges against him and did not find evidence of a conspiracy between his campaign and Moscow during the 2016 election.

But the report has intensified discussions among Democrats about impeaching Trump, and Mueller has said publicly that if his team believed the president had done nothing wrong, the report would have said so. Mueller also noted it would not have been possible under Justice Department guidance for his team to bring charges against a sitting president.

Pelosi angered Trump again after she reportedly told senior Democrats in a private meeting  that she doesn’t “want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

The Speaker has been resisting pressure from some Democrats to begin a formal impeachment proceeding against Trump.
