President Trump launched a rare Twitter attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) following her "60 Minutes" interview with CBS's Lesley Stahl on Sunday night.

"Such a "puff piece" on Nancy Pelosi by @60Minutes, yet her leadership has passed no meaningful Legislation. All they do is Investigate, as it turns out, crimes that they instigated & committed. The Mueller No Collusion decision wasn't even discussed-and she was a disaster at W.H." Trump tweeted.

Trump has rarely used Twitter to directly attack Pelosi, in contrast with his frequent barbs directed at Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and others. He is reportedly is set to meet with her in the near future to discuss a potential bipartisan infrastructure package.

During Pelosi's interview, she said that despite what she called Trump's "assault on the Constitution," she remained confident congressional Democrats could work with him.

"He's not worth the trouble of saying you're so horrible we can't work together. No, we need to work together," she told Stahl. "I think our future is strong enough - built on a strong foundation to withstand everything, including the current occupant of the White House.

Trump says he is opposed to White House aides testifying to Congress, deepening power struggle with Hill.
The president’s comments came as White House indicated it would broadly defy requests for information from the House, moving the two branches of government closer to a constitutional collision. On Tuesday, two White House officials said the administration plans to fight a subpoena issued by the House Judiciary Committee for former White House counsel Donald McGahn by asserting executive privilege over his testimony. Separately, the administration directed a former White House official not to comply with a subpoena from the House Oversight Committee, prompting the panel to move to hold him in contempt.
