House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “doesn’t care” about what President Trump tweets, now don’t ask again.
The California Democrat grew heated during an interview on friendly territory, CNN, when she was asked about her thoughts on Trump’s tweet that hinted that the U.S. may relieve some coronavirus restrictions in a few weeks to help stimulate the economy.
Pelosi said once Americans get back to work, the economy will thrive, but said “central to all of that is stopping the spread of the disease, of the coronavirus.”
“It’s central to that,” she said. “So I don’t have time to follow people’s twits, tweets, twitters, whatever…So don’t expect me to comment,” Pelosi.

CNN’s Dana Bash, again, asked Pelosi about Trump’s indication that he could open the economy back up.
“I don’t care! I don’t care; I don’t care; I don’t care,” Pelosi said. “My opinion is that it is not scientific-based, he’s notion-mongering as he does almost every day.”
Stocks were up on Tuesday after Trump announced that he hoped that the country would resume somewhat normal function by Easter. The idea of his administration’s 15-day coronavirus guideline was to slow the spread of the coronavirus and “flatten the curve.” Presumably, Trump is optimistic that the guidelines will work well, infections will remain steady and the country quickly rebounds.
The death toll in the U.S. reached 696 by Thursday afternoon and the country has more than 53,000 confirmed cases.
Negotiators on Capitol Hill signaled Tuesday that a deal on the $2 trillion stimulus package was imminent.
“We are very close. We are close to a bill that takes our bold Republican framework, integrates further ideas from both parties and delivers huge progress.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, according to CNN.
