Despite an escalating war of words over the looming prospect of impeachment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., says she remains hopeful that negotiations with the president on the subject of infrastructure are still on the front burner.

“Does he want to do it enough to not be in a huff over my saying that he’s involved in a cover-up?” she asked. “Well, we’ll see. But this is not for the faint of heart. I mean, you either want to do it or you don’t want to do it. And you shouldn’t be offended by somebody speaking the truth about your actions.”

Nevertheless, Pelosi said she continues to “feel optimistic” that Donald Trump wants to reach an infrastructure deal with the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.
