What the president did is unconstitutional slop, Pelosi said on Fox News Sunday, adding that rather than effectively getting more money to the unemployed and halting evictions, these are illusions.

Having no bill at all, not coming to any agreement wasnt going to provide any of that either, he said.
Pelosi defended Democratic leaders efforts in negotiations, saying they had offered compromises.
What the president does doesnt even accomplish anything he sets out to do in the categories he did, but we said to [Republicans], well come down a trillion [dollars], you come up a trillion [dollars] and well be able to have an agreement that meets the needs of the American people, she said.
We have to reach an agreement, children are food insecure, families are at the risk of being evicted, the virus is moving like a freight train, Pelosi added. The kindest thing I could say he doesnt know what hes talking about, or somethings wrong there, somethings very, very wrong.
Pelosi added that to characterize the proposed executive actions, which reportedly include a smaller temporary federal unemployment benefits and a nationwide payroll tax cut, as even accomplishing what they set out to do, something that would take the place of an agreement, is just not so.
Pelosi also addressed reports that the intelligence community has found Russia intends to attempt election interference again in 2020 and that China prefers former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenBiden says Trump executive order is ‘a reckless war on Social Security’Trump got into testy exchange with top GOP donor Adelson: reportBlumenthal calls for declassification of materials detailing Russian threat to US electionsMORE, the presumptive Democratic nominee.
We have written to say you have to release the information, the American people need to know what the Russians are doing in this case, Pelosi said. She also criticized the grouping together of active Russian interference and Chinese preferences in the assessment.
[China] is not really getting involved in the presidential election, she said. I take second place to no one on my criticism of China but for them to give some equivalence is not telling the whole story.
