President Donald Trump is planning an executive order to "take food out of the mouths of babies," House Speaker-Designate Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) declared Thursday.

At a press event where she announced House passage of a farm bill, Pelosi warned that Trump "may undermine the will of Congress" and, in so doing, take food from the mouths of babies:

"It is a bill that is much-needed support for our farmers and ranchers. It has a strong nutrition part to it and it has, again, strong bipartisan support. I think that there were only 47 votes against it in the House of Representatives.

"Unfortunately, we’re hearing now, that the president may undermine the will of Congress by doing executive order to take food out of the mouths of babies – and families, in our country, as well as undermining the forestry parts of the legislation.

"Again, we try to make progress in a bipartisan way, and the president, then, will try to undermine that legislation."
