President Trump peeked at the door of Nancy Pelosi’s hair salon on Saturday – which cast doubts about the Speaker of Parliament’s ability to negotiate with foreign opponents when she had problems with a small business owner.
In the same message, the president also targeted Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“Nancy Pelosi said it was” set up “by the owner (a very good one) of a beauty salon,” the president wrote.

“If so, how will it act in negotiations against President Xi of China, President Putin of Russia or Kim Jong Un of North Korea? I guess not as good, but far better than Joe Hiden! “
Pelosi, a San Francisco Democrat, has been the target of nearly a week of criticism and wisecracks since he was videotaped maskless at ESalonSF amid the coronavirus pandemic ̵

On Wednesday, Pelosi claimed she was “set up” by the salon – claiming she deserved an apology for the backlash and ridicule she suffered after the video went viral.
Salon owner Erica Kious, meanwhile, criticized Pelosi, accusing the spokeswoman of feeling entitled to privileges not available to the public as she has been dealing with the closings of various businesses and services for nearly six months.
“It was a slap in the face for her to go in, you know, that she feels like she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in and I can’t work,” Kious told Fox News. She added that she “cannot believe” that the speaker was not wearing a mask. (The footage suggests that Pelosi had some sort of covering around his neck.)

“We’re supposed to look up to this woman, aren’t we?” Said Kious. “It’s just annoying.”
In an earlier tweet on Thursday, President Trump suggested that perhaps Kious should try to replace “Crazy Nancy” in Congress, where the 80-year-old Democrat has served since 1987.
On Friday, San Francisco Mayor London Breed told local broadcaster KGO-TV that the salon affair may have run its course and that it was time to “move on”.
