President Trump hit back at senior Democrat politician, Nancy Pelosi, after the Democratic Minority Leader in the House of Representatives unfairly attacked him on ABC's "This Week." 

Pelosi blamed Trump for not having a jobs-creating infrastructure plan up and running only weeks into his presidency, when the Democrats have been doing everything in their power to obstruct and delay every single one of Trump's new appointments and policies, of which there have been many. 

Some of Trump's already enacted policies have in fact already created infrastructure jobs, such as his decision to lift the roadblocks on energy infrastructure projects like the Keystone Pipeline, while he has also prevented numerous companies outsourcing jobs to other countries.

Trump hit back by attacking Pelosi in an interview on "Fox & Friends" aired Tuesday (28th Feb) ahead of his address to a joint session of Congress. He described the 76-year-old Pelosi as "incompetent" and referred to her record of failure. He also raised the possibility that the Democrats could collapse because of their inability to serve the interests of their working class base:
"You know, if you look at what’s going on with the Democrats and the party, it’s getting smaller and smaller," Trump said. "You know, in a certain way, I hate to see it, because I like a two-party system and we're soon going to have a one-party system. I actually think a two-party system is healthy and good. But she’s done a terrible job."
Perhaps one reason the Democrats have lost touch with their base is because people like Pelosi who have been leading the party are part of a super-rich club. The fortune of Pelosi and her husband, acquired through her husband's real estate dealings, is estimated to be around $100 million. Trump is even richer, but his election success in 2016 showed us just how in touch he was with the American people.
