In an interview for the FRONTLINE documentary “Pelosi’s Power,” The Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson discusses Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump was a bridge too far for her, and she was not able to have those sorts of relationships with Trump or his team,” he tells FRONTLINE. “But with prior Republicans in the White House and in Congress, she was able to talk and laugh and wheel and deal in a sort of way that was at times delightful to watch.”
The following interview was conducted by FRONTLINE’s Jim Gilmore on Oct. 28, 2021. It has been edited for clarity and length.
“Pelosi’s Power” premieres March 22, 2022.
