( - Should Congress look into allegations that President Trump had an affair with a porn star 12 years ago? A reporter asked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) about that at a news conference on Thursday.

"Let me just say that I'm more concerned about the president's policies, which undermine the national security of America's working families," Pelosi responded. "For example, his budget --  cutting Medicare, cutting Medicaid, cutting Social Security disability benefits, cutting Housing and Urban Development, cutting food stamps, cutting education.


"That's what Congress should get involved with," Pelosi said.

"So I don't know that we necessarily have to get involved in any of that. You can be sure if any of that were happening with the Democrats, the Republicans would be very involved. But our time should be spent making the future better for the American people and creating good-paying jobs, reducing costs..."

Pelosi said producing an economy that works for everyone is more important that "the rumors about the president’s personal life."

Speculation about Trump's rumored consensual relationship  in 2006 --  rumors fueled by a porn star who wants to tell her story -- continued to dominate the headlines Thursday on cable news channels that have opposed Trump, and actively undermined him, since his first day in office.
