WASHINGTON – House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said yesterday she wished President Donald Trump’s family or staff would conduct an “intervention” with him for the good of the United States.

She was speaking after the president threw what she called a temper tantrum at a meeting with Democratic congressional leaders a day earlier.

Trump fired back, questioning Pelosi’s mental state by saying she has “lost it” while calling himself an “extremely stable genius”.

Trump, who is seeking re-election in 2020, and Democratic leaders for a second straight day lobbed accusations and insults at each other after the collapse of an infrastructure deal that could have pumped US$2 trillion into the US economy, if lawmakers and the president had found a way to pay for it.

“Again, I pray for the president of the United States. I wish that his family, or his administration, or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country,” Pelosi said.

An “intervention” often refers to relatives, friends or co-workers confronting an individual struggling with a intractable problem. (Reuters)
