House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized President Donald Trump’s series of executive orders in various media appearances on Sunday.
In an interview with CNN, Pelosi stated that “something’s wrong” with the executive orders, pointing out how Trump asks states to cover 25% of the costs when they are already struggling with budget limitations.
On Fox News, Pelosi called the president’s orders for payroll tax cuts — which he said he would make permanent if re-elected for a second term — “unconstitutional slop” that undermined funding for social security and Medicare.
