When asked throughout an interview with MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace if she would be Fine with the president reaching out to her, Pelosi replied, "It would depend on what the purpose is."
The two have not spoken since a meeting at the White House exactly a year ago, on Oct. 16, 2019, about drawing U.S. troops out of northern Syria that eventually turned into the two exchanging insults and the Speaker leaving.
After that meeting, Trump tweeted out a picture of Pelosi standing up and pointing a finger at him while most lawmakers and administration officials remained seated. "Nervous Nancy's unhinged meltdown!" Trump wrote.
Pelosi explained that she was telling Trump that "all roads with you lead to Putin" at the second captured by the photo.
"What was funny about it is the White House put out that photo, because we're not even allowed to wear a smartwatch in the room," Pelosi said while speaking about it on Friday. "They put that out and I said, 'Thank you very much, Mr. President.' "
"But we left because there was no purpose to staying there. There was no truth coming from the other side," she said.
The two sides were also incapable of agreeing at the time on what insult Trump lobbed at Pelosi throughout the meeting a year ago. Trump named Pelosi a "third rate" politician throughout that meeting, according to the White House, though Pelosi said afterward that she heard him say "third grade" politician.
After arriving at the Capitol from the White House that day, Pelosi said that "we have to pray for his health."
Pelosi and Trump were last in the same room together at the National Prayer Breakfast in February, while he stated that he doesn't like people who “who say ‘I pray for you’ when they know that’s not so."
That event took place two days after Trump's State of the Union address, where he seemed to ignore Pelosi's effort at a handshake and she ripped up a copy of his speech.
Pelosi pointed to bipartisan agreements like on government funding, coronavirus relief measures, and a revised trade pact with Mexico and Canada that she consulted with Mnuchin and other Trump administration officials, even though she didn't speak with Trump directly.
"So it isn't as if it has to be person to person between the Speaker and the president. It has to be knowledge for knowledge in terms of what our purpose is, what we know about the challenge we face and what the possible solutions are," Pelosi said.
