During his rally in New Hampshire on Monday, Trump claimed that Pelosi was mumbling behind him while he was delivering his State of the Union address to Congress.
“I had somebody behind me who was mumbling terribly,” Trump told supporters before making mumbling sounds. He added that it was “very distracting.”
As Trump spoke, the crowd began to chant “lock her up,” about Pelosi for a couple of seconds.

“I’m speaking, and a woman is mumbling terribly behind me, angry, there was a little anger back there. We’re the ones who should be angry, not them,” Trump said.
CNN reported that prior to the State of the Union, the two leaders had not spoken since a contentious meeting in October, where Trump called Pelosi a “third-grade politician.”
Two days later, the two continued to take shots at each other during public events. While Trump said he doesn’t believe Pelosi prays for him, she maintained that she does and questioned if he understands prayer.
Pelosi previously said she thinks Trump is a “coward” but she does not “hate” him, instead she said she prays for him.
