(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said on MSNBC on Monday that she is praying for President Trump’s “comfort and speedy recovery” and that her “heart is full of prayers for him and his family.”

“We pray for the president's comfort and a speedy recovery for him,” Pelosi said when host Ayman Mohyeldin asked for her reaction to Trump’s release from the hospital.

“He has to remember though that his words weigh a ton, as president of the United States,” said Pelosi. “If he is acting frivolous with this virus as he has done all along, this is dangerous for the American people.” 

Pelosi went on to say that she was speaking with a “heavy heart because my heart is full of prayers for him and his family, that they become healthy and well.”

“The President could be going back to the White House and become a long hauler, someone who has consequences from this virus,” said Pelosi.

“He should not be dealing with it politically to make it look like he overcame the virus because he's had such good policies, because, in fact, he has been very destructive and dangerous to the country,” she said.  

“And I say that with a heavy heart because my heart is full of prayers for him and his family, that they become healthy and well,” she said.

Here is a transcript of the part of Pelosi’s appearance on MSNBC where she said that her “heart is full of prayers” for President Trump and his family:

Ayman Mohyeldin: “Let me get your reaction to this breaking news that we just got, the President tweeting out he will be leaving Walter Reed, returning to the White House 68 hours or so after his hospitalization.  What do you make of that news, Madam Speaker? 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “Well, first of all, I hope it's an indication that the physicians have given him permission to do this.  We pray for the President's comfort and a speedy recovery for him.  He has to remember though that his words weigh a ton, as President of the United States.  If he is acting frivolous with this virus as he has done all along, this is dangerous for the American people. 

“So, I hope that we'll hear a trustworthy report from his physicians and that the news is good, but it's not to make light of it.  The President could be going back to the White House and become a long hauler, someone who has consequences from this virus.  He should not be dealing with it politically to make it look like he overcame the virus because he's had such good policies, because, in fact, he has been very destructive and dangerous to the country.  And I say that with a heavy heart because my heart is full of prayers for him and his family, that they become healthy and well.”
