President Trump launched a rare Twitter attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) following her "60 Minutes" interview with CBS's Lesley Stahl on Sunday night.

"Such a "puff piece" on Nancy Pelosi by @60Minutes, yet her leadership has passed no meaningful Legislation. All they do is Investigate, as it turns out, crimes that they instigated & committed. The Mueller No Collusion decision wasn't even discussed-and she was a disaster at W.H." Trump tweeted.

He is reportedlyset to meet with her in the near future to discuss a potential bipartisan infrastructure package.

During Pelosi's interview, she said that despite what she called Trump's "assault on the Constitution," she remained confident congressional Democrats could work with him.
