"I'm an extremely stable genius," the President told reporters, bragging about his opinions over the years, after telling Democrats to approve his new NAFTA trade bill.

He also lashed out at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, saying, "I watched Nancy and she was all crazy yesterday."
"I don't think Nancy Pelosi understands the deal. It's too complicated. But it's not a complicated deal," Trump also said, according to Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale. "She's a mess. Look, let's face it. She doesn't understand it. They sort of feel, she's disintegrating before their eyes. She does not understand it."
Trump keeps insulting Pelosi's mind, calling her "Crazy Nancy" and saying, "I'll tell you what, I've been watching her, and I have been watching her for a long period of time, she's not the same person. She's lost it."

The President also forced multiple White House officials, including Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Larry Kudlow, to testify to reporters that he was calm during his extremely short meeting with congressional Democratic leaders – contrary to multiple press reports.
ABC White House reporter Jordyn Phelps reported Trump went "around the room in the Roosevelt Room, calling on all his aides who were at the meetings with Dems to explain his 'calm' tone and demeanor in yesterday's meeting."
