House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday mocked former President Donald Trump, referring to him as a "twice-impeached Florida retiree."

"Twice-impeached Florida retiree – and de facto leader of the Republican Party – Donald Trump," Pelosi's office said in a statement.

The California Democrat went on to criticize Trump for "disrespecting the Capitol Police and other law enforcement officers" by defending rioters who stormed the US Capitol on January 6.

Trump during a press event on Wednesday said the deadly insurrection was "unfortunate" and claimed the Capitol riot suspects "are being treated unbelievably unfairly."

Trump is "decrying how rioters 'are being treated unbelievably unfairly' now that they are facing legal consequences for their actions," Pelosi's office said. Around 550 people have been charged in the Capitol insurrection so far.
