During a call with the press, 45th President Donald Trump called for a ban on members of Congress trading stocks.
He blasted Nancy Pelosi over it saying “she has inside information” and that it isn’t fair to ordinary Americans.
Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday backed bipartisan efforts to ban members of Congress from trading stocks, telling Breitbart News on a press call House Speaker Nancy Pelosi performing significantly better than the market is â€œnot fairâ€ to ordinary Americans.
â€œShe has inside information. Itâ€™s not right. Itâ€™s not appropriate. It shouldnâ€™t be,â€ Trump said when asked by Breitbart News about Pelosiâ€™s stock trading. â€œShe doesnâ€™t want to discuss that. She wants to discuss other things that shouldnâ€™t be discussed. Some of the things that theyâ€™re proposing now, like impeaching someone for absolutely no reason for a perfect phone call. You look at that. You look at impeachmentâ€”both of them. But you get impeached for a phone call that was like perfecto. So many different things. I happen to watch her and see her and dealt with her a lot and I think sheâ€™s clever in one way and stone cold crazy. She should not be allowed to do that with the stocks. She should not be allowed to do that. Itâ€™s not fair to the rest of this country.â€
It has been exposed that Pelosi makes millions of dollars trading stocks.
Nancy Pelosi makes millions off tech stocks â€“ and scoffs at push to ban congressional trades
Nancy Pelosi is scrambling to quash bipartisan efforts to ban stock trading by Congressional lawmakers â€” even as she and her husband have raked in as much as $30 million from bets on the Big Tech firms Pelosi is responsible for regulating.
Late last month, the House Speaker disclosed that the Pelosis scooped up millions in bullish call options for stocks including Google, Salesforce, Micron Technology and Roblox. At the same, some insiders say she has slow-walked efforts to rein in Big Tech.
Days later, Pelosi brushed off worries over stock picking by lawmakers, claiming it was part of the â€œfree-market economyâ€ â€” comments that made Democratic insiders â€œblood boil,â€ people close to the speaker told The Post.
â€œKey policy makers can be rich but they shouldnâ€™t own individual companies,â€ Jeff Hauser, a self-proclaimed progressive Democrat and founder and director of the Revolving Door Project, told The Post.
