House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized President Donald Trump's series of executive orders in various media appearances on Sunday.
In an interview with CNN , Pelosi stated that "something's wrong" with the executive orders, pointing out how Trump asks states to cover 25% of the costs when they are already struggling with budget limitations.
