Nancy Pelosi, the Minority Leader of the United States House of Representatives, says President Donald Trump needs an “intervention,” suggesting that the president does not know what he’s talking about.

“I think an intervention is really needed here,” Pelosi said in an interview which will be broadcast on Friday.

In the clip, obtained exclusively by ITK, Pelosi said, “It’s about the law and what happens — the facts and the law. And that equals grounds for impeachment or not.”

“But I do believe this: we have to make sure the president knows what he’s talking about. And that’s why I say an intervention. What are the facts?”she asked.

“I always am respectful of the office,” Pelosi said, “But if he wasn’t going to be respectful — starting off with that — he opened the door.”

Last week, Trump refused to certify the nuclear agreement with Iran, and warned he might ultimately terminate it, in defiance of other world powers and undermining a landmark victory of multilateral diplomacy.

Pelosi blasted Trump’s decision not to recertify the 2015 multinational nuclear agreement with Iran, saying the new policy is “a grave mistake” that endangers US interests and undermines American credibility.

“President Trump’s refusal to recertify is a grave mistake that threatens America’s security and our credibility at a very critical time,” she said.

In recent days, Republican Senator Bob Corker has also harshly criticized Trump.

Corker called the Trump White House "an adult day care center." He said Trump was leading the US toward "World War III, and that he was treating the office of the president "like a reality show." 

The chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee also said that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and other top administration officials “help separate us from chaos.”
