“It’s disrespectful to Maxine, to women, of course to minorities,” she added.

Pelosi also referenced Trump’s tweet ahead of the first anniversary of the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, in which he said he condemns “all types of racism.”

 

 

“He likes to make some statement in his tweet about no place for racism, and engages in it constantly,” she said. “It’s shameful.”

Trump has repeatedly targeted both Pelosi and Waters in tweets and during his rallies.

He mocked the Democratic leader in a tweet Friday, calling her a "wonderful person whose ideas & policies may be bad, but who should definitely be given a 4th chance."

 

 

Pelosi made the comments on the first anniversary of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

Thousands of anti-racism protesters gathered in Washington, D.C., on Sunday as white supremacists planned a second "Unite the Right" rally in the city. The rally attendees were vastly outnumbered by attendees of the counterprotests, and left the event hours early.
