President Donald Trump on Friday accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of having "said terrible things" about him and appeared to question her mental fitness, NBC News reported.
The comments came a day after Trump tweeted out an edited video that made it appear Pelosi was uncertain in her speech. The video that he shared, apparently from a segment on Fox Business' "Lou Dobbs Tonight," features portions of a 20-minute news conference Pelosi held Thursday in a montage that lasts about 30 seconds. It shows her tripping over her words. At one point in the video, a moment is repeated several times.
The Washington Post, meanwhile, published a story about a different video circulating on social media of Pelosi at a Center for American Progress event. That video was altered to make it sound as if she was slurring her words, The Post reported.
"You think Nancy is the same as she was? She's not. Maybe we can all say that," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House as he departed on a trip to Japan on Friday.
The president said he was responding "in kind" to her and claimed to be unaware of altered videos.
Pelosi this week accused Trump of a “cover-up" in thwarting investigations and, after infrastructure talks failed, suggested that members of his family or staff stage an "intervention."

The director of the agency overseeing legal entry into the United States, including through green cards and asylum, was asked to resign from the agency on Friday, according to a letter sent out to the agency and obtained by NBC News.
L. Francis Cissna has served as President Donald Trump’s only director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security. He oversaw the agency during the final iteration of the travel ban, attempts to repeal status for “Dreamers” and the administration’s repeated attempts to limit the ability for undocumented immigrants crossing the southern border from Central America to claim asylum.
Prior to leading USCIS, Cissna served at DHS in the Office of Policy in the Obama administration and worked for Republican Senator Chuck Grassley. According to a source familiar with Cissna’s resignation, Trump thanked him for his service and asked him to resign.
Cissna will depart the agency on June 1, according to the letter he sent employees on Friday."As an immigration law and policy professional dedicated to the rule of law like so many of you, I appreciate that this opportunity to serve was a unique experience,” he said in the letter.

A federal judge on Friday temporarily blocked a Mississippi law that would ban most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, at about six weeks of pregnancy.
"Here we go again," U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves wrote in his order. "Mississippi has passed another law banning abortions prior to viability."
His new order stops the law from taking effect July 1. Reeves is the same judge who struck down a 2018 Mississippi law to ban abortion at 15 weeks.
Mississippi is one of several states that have pushed this year to enact bans on early abortions. Opponents of abortion are emboldened by new conservative Supreme Court justices and are looking for ways to challenge the court's 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

Texas authorities on Friday denied withholding a cellphone video of Sandra Bland's confrontational traffic stop, responding to a Democratic legislator's heated questions about why the 39-second clip never publicly surfaced until now.
Bland, a 28-year-old black woman from outside Chicago, had used her phone in 2015 to briefly film a white state trooper as he drew a stun gun and yelled "I will light you up!" while ordering her out of the car. She was dead a day later, found hanging in her jail cell outside Houston.
