Pelosi has served as a prominent foil during Trump's presidency, first as House minority leader and now as Speaker since January. She has frequently lambasted his policies and his rhetoric on immigration, health care, spending and other subjects.

The two clashed over the State of the Union address earlier this year when Pelosi postponed it amid a partial government shutdown. Trump suggested he would give the speech regardless, but ultimately relented.

Pelosi also caught Trump's attention with comments published earlier this week in which she indicated she's unlikely to support impeachment because the president is "not worth it."

"Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he's just not worth it," Pelosi told The Washington Post.

Trump later tweeted that he appreciated the Speaker's comments, but that he "never did anything wrong."
