NANCY Pelosi reportedly admitted over the weekend that she wants to pull President Donald Trump out of White House by "his hair, his little hands and feet."
The Speaker of the United States House of Representatives reportedly made her statement during a weekend of negations with Congress.
"I’m counting down the hours ‘til he’s gone," Pelosi told her leadership team, according to POLITICO
"I plan to pull him out of there by his hair, his little hands and his feet.”
Congress finally agreed on economic relief package on Sunday night – prompting the Monday night passage of a second Covid relief bill.
The package will include $600 stimulus checks for most Americans.
The $900billion bill will now head to President Trump's desk – with the White House already confirming that he plans to sign it in the coming days.
Under the bill, Americans with an annual income of less than $75,000 will receive $600 stimulus checks, and the amount lessens until it is canceled out for those who earned $99,000.
Lawmakers also passed a $1.4trillion measure that will keep the US government funded through September.
Despite the president being expected to sign the $900billion package, Pelosi and Trump's relationship appears to remain the same.
When Joe Biden was named the projected winner of the 2020 presidential election on November 7, Pelosi slammed Trump and said that Americans chose a "fairer, stronger" country by choosing the 78-year-old Democrat.
The House Speaker made the comments on Twitter shortly after news broke that Biden had secured enough electoral votes to take the presidency.
She wrote: "The American people have chosen a fairer, stronger, and respected America that is equal to the aspirations of our daughters and sons.
"And to the sacrifice of our veterans and men and women in uniform by electing @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris as our next President and Vice President."
Prior to Election Day, Pelosi ripped Trump and warned the president "will stoop to any level for his own re-election."
Speaking to HuffPost a few days before the election, Pelosi said: "I would just like him to know it ain't going to happen for him at the end of the day."
The House Speaker also told the outlet that she has been working with lawyers for four months in anticipation that Trump might try to cut the vote count short.
The team included attorneys with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Republicans and former US Attorney General Eric Holder.
Pelosi said: "We have been prepared for the worst for a long time because what we have seen is the worst on the part of this president in terms of his disrespect for the Constitution, his disregard of free will of the people and his stooping to any level for his own reelection.
"We have tremendous intellectual, political and financial resources at our disposal.
"We have our lawyers poised to move on a dime on Election Day or evening, as we see a problem."
Meanwhile, Pelosi refused on Sunday to answer repeated questions on why she accepted the $900billion stimulus bill but rejected a more generous package before the presidential election.
The Democratic speaker seemed to ignore questions from CNN senior Congressional correspondent Manu Raju around why she did not accept a larger stimulus bill from the Trump administration.
