Pelosi Chastises Trump for Promoting ‘Fear Tactics’ at Campaign Rallies

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) chastised President Trump for promoting “fear tactics” during his campaign rallies, calling his Saturday appearance in Michigan “so irresponsible.”

“The president has to realize that the words of the president of the United States weigh a ton,” Pelosi told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. “And in our political dialogue, to inject fear tactics into it, especially a woman governor and her family, is so irresponsible.”

The speaker criticized Trump for calling for his supporters to “get your governor to open up your state, okay? And get your schools open” during his rally in Western Michigan in reference to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D). 

His comment prompted the crowd to chant “lock her up,” a chant used during his 2016 rallies against Hillary Clinton, leading the president to respond on Saturday saying, “Lock ‘em all up.”
