Kayleigh McEnany confirmed that President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have reached a year of not speaking to each other amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has now infected over 7 million people in the U.S.

"Yes. They haven’t spoken in a while," McEnany told Fox News' Bill Hemmer on Tuesday, after being asked if the two had hit their year mark on not communicating.

Pelosi confirmed the same on Friday to MSNBC host Nicole Wallace and was hesitant to agree to reopening communication with the president if he reached out.

"Well, it would depend on what the purpose is," Pelosi said, adding that she has still been negotiating for a second coronavirus relief bill with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

"Let me say, without the two of us speaking person-to-person, but, either through the airwaves or through the President's intermediaries, we were able, in that period of time, to pass a huge omnibus bill to keep the government open, working with Secretary Mnuchin then," Pelosi said.

Congress has yet to reach an agreement on a second stimulus package to help relieve people facing economic hardship amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Democrats and Republicans have struggled to reach a deal on what should be prioritized in the package, as well as how much to spend in the second package.

Pelosi said she is optimistic Congress could reach a deal on a stimulus package before Election Day but has set a deadline to expire by the end of Tuesday. The speaker added that if the structure of the deal isn't in place by then, it's unlikely a package will be passed before Nov. 3.
