The veteran newsman pointed to big-ticket items such as fixing the nation's infrastructure that he says aren't being addressed as a result of the volatile back-and-forth.

MORE (D-N.Y.) not long after Pelosi told reporters that members of her party believe the president is engaged in a “cover-up” by refusing to cooperate with Democratic-led investigations.

The Democratic leader also urged members of Trump's family to stage "an intervention" while saying she was personally "praying" for the president. 

Trump fired back at Pelosi, nicknaming her "Crazy Nancy" and declaring she had “lost it." He threatened not to cooperate with Democrats on their legislative agenda unless they shut down the investigations into his finances and conduct in office.

Wallace warned that while the war of words between the Speaker and the president continues, big issues including infrastructure and funding the government will not be addressed. 

"There are a lot of things that have to get done in the course of this year, let alone 2020 and the campaign," Wallace said. "They have to figure out how to fund the government by Oct. 1. They have to raise the debt limit or the country goes into default."
