President Donald Trump ridiculed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday, calling her the GOP's "secret weapon" in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.

Speaking at a factory in Ohio, Trump slammed Pelosi for calling the $1,000-plus bonuses and wage increases that American workers are receiving from the GOP tax reform, "crumbs," and "pathetic."

"Nancy Pelosi again said that’s 'crumbs'," Trump told the crowd. "Well, she's a rich woman who lives in a big, beautiful house in California who wants to give all of your money away."

"She’s our secret weapon. I just hope they [the Democrats] don’t change her. She’s really out there. And I’m supposed to make a deal with her?"
