WATCH: CNN’s Jake Tapper Grills Speaker Pelosi To Her Face For Failing To Agree On COVID Bill

During an interview on Sunday, CNN anchor Take Tapper grilled Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for refusing to make a deal with the White House on a coronavirus relief package.

Tapper correctly stated that the Trump White House had “moved closer” to Pelosi’s deal “on lots of issues” however Pelosi has refused to budge.

“And also same thing, they keep moving the goalposts,” Pelosi claimed. “They, every time they say we move the goalposts, that means they’re projecting what they did.”

“I get that you’re waiting for it on paper. But it just seems like, you’re winning. I mean, that’s what it seems like to me,” Tapper stated. “I’m looking at all the things that the White House is moving forward to your position on. And it seems like you could take yes for an answer.”

Tapper then said that poverty levels are on the rise because of the pandemic and that some Democratic governors have pressured Pelosi into making a deal with President Trump.

“In addition, one of your own members, Congressman Max Rose, said this week that the Democratic Party needs to learn, to a certain extent, how to declare victory and go home,” Tapper said. “You’re getting a lot of messages from Democrats saying: This is good enough. We need to say yes.”

Pelosi shot back by saying, “that is not a lot of messages.”
