Former President Trump this Wednesday supported bipartisan efforts to stop members of Congress from buying or selling stocks, telling conservatives on a press call that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did significantly better than the market and that it was “not fair” to normal Americans.
“She has insider information. It’s not right. It is not appropriate. It should not be,” Trump said when asked about Pelosi’s habit of stock trading. “She does not want to discuss it. She wants to talk about other things that should not be discussed. Some of these things they’re pushing right now, like impeaching someone for no reason for a normal phone call. You look at those. At impeachment—both of them. But you get impeached for a normal phone call. I happen to see her and dealt with her a lot and I believe she is clever in one way and completely crazy. She should not be allowed to do this with stocks. She should not be able to do it. It is not fair to the rest of this nation.”
Trump had the call with journalists from select outlets to hype the huge sales of his photo book called Our Journey Together, which sold more than 200,000 copies in only a month. The book, published by Winning Team Publishing, is supported by printers as paper shortages are seen in the country thanks to Biden’s supply chain crisis is preventing publishers from printing their books fast enough. Sergio Gor, the Winning Team Publishing president, started the Trump phone call by joking about the Joe Biden supply chain problems holding up printing copies of Donald Trump’s book to keep up with the demand. “Only in Biden’s America do people run out of paper, so our current printer has had problems not only with this book but also with many of their big success books so that was delayed all over America,” Gor stated.
As we have reported, Trump bashes Nancy Pelosi in the book, writing that she was “f—ing crazy.” Pelosi has been in the news a lot lately given her stock trading habits—she consistently outperforms the stock market—which have drawn criticism as both GOP members and Democrats try to ban members of Congress from buying and selling stocks because of Pelosi’s apparent abuse of the current system.
