House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday condemned President Trump again, saying he “crossed another threshold of undermining our democracy” with his St. John’s church visit at the expense of peaceful protesters on Monday night.
Pelosi, who made the remarks in an interview with NPR, also said she does not think any use of the American military to quell protests and riots is justified at this point.
“There is no reason for the US military to be called out for this,” she said, adding that most protests across the country have been peaceful thus far.
Asked about a potential congressional response to police brutality, Pelosi reiterated the Congressional Black Caucus is taking the lead on the matter. She said addressing immunity laws for police is “very important, and that would be a priority.”
