President Donald Trump took an overt shot at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi during his Wednesday speech at the Latino Coalition Legislative Summit.


“That is a lot of money in your pockets, no matter where you’re coming from,” Trump said in reference to the tax cuts he signed into law in 2017. “It’s the biggest tax cut and reform in American history.”

“We got no Democrat votes, by the way, not one. Now they are all saying, maybe we should have voted. Do you notice that they are having second thoughts?” he continued. “At the heart of our plan itself is the tremendous relief for working families and small businesses.”

“A typical family of four earning $75,000 a year will see an income tax cut of more than $2,000,” POTUS added. “That’s not crumbs. Slashing their tax bill in half.”

Trump’s crumbs comment was a clear dig at Pelosi’s preferred line of attack for criticizing the tax cuts. (RELATED: Pelosi Tweets Her Most Offensive ‘Crumbs’ Comment Yet)

The California Democrat has repeatedly referred to the $1,000 bonuses many companies have opted to give employees in light of the cuts as “crumbs.”
