House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded Tuesday to comments President Trump made last week calling her a “disgrace to herself” and a “disaster.”

“I don’t care what motivates him and we never know. But in front of the tombstones of our fallen when we’re there to observe the 75th anniversary of Normandy? You be the judge as to whether it’s appropriate for the president to take that tack,” the California Democrat said during the Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s 2019 Fiscal Summit, held at the Newseum.

While he was in Normandy, France, honoring the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the World War II invasion of France, Mr. Trump debuted a new nickname for Mrs. Pelosi to Fox News in front of the graves of fallen U.S. D-Day soldiers.

Nancy Pelosi, I call her Nervous Nancy, Nancy Pelosi doesn’t talk about it. Nancy Pelosi is a disaster, ok? She’s a disaster. Let her do what she wants, you know what? I think they’re in big trouble,” Mr. Trump said Thursday.

Mr. Trump later tweeted Friday Mrs. Pelosi is a “disgrace” following a Politico report saying Mrs. Pelosi wants the president “in prison” instead of pursuing impeachment.

Mrs. Pelosi appears to relish being in Mr. Trump’s crosshairs.

“My stock goes up every time he attacks me,” she said.
