President Donald Trump called out House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for consistently referring to worker bonuses as “crumbs.”


A number of corporations announced that they would give employees $1000 bonuses as a result of last month’s tax reform. Pelosi has referred to such bonuses as “crumbs” on at least three occasions, including at an event on Thursday.

“They mock me in ads for saying that,” Pelosi acknowledged during a tax reform town hall in Massachusetts.

During an address at the annual Republican retreat in West Virginia, Trump specifically called out Pelosi for her “crumbs” comments.

“We got hit with these corporations giving tremendous bonuses to everybody that Nancy Pelosi calls crumbs,” Trump said. “That was a bad…that could be like ‘deplorable.'”

“Does that make sense? ‘Deplorable’ and ‘crumbs’?” Trump joked. “Those two words, they seem to have a resemblance.”

“But she called it crumbs when people are getting $2000 and $3000 and $1000 — that’s not crumbs, that’s a lot of money,” he asserted.
