President Donald Trump called Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler last month while he was in the hospital after nearly passing out, according to a Yahoo News report Monday.
Nadler appeared weak and slumped over in his chair while attending a press conference with New York Mayor and presidential hopeful Bill de Blasio on the importance of expanding speeding cameras in school zones.
While Nadler was being treated for dehydration in the hospital, Trump called Nadler and told him he was “tough,” Yahoo News reported. The president also wished Nadler well and asked if there was anything he could do to help without any discussion of politics.
Nadler, the Judiciary Committee chairman, is actively pursuing investigations into the president and has reportedly called for Speaker Pelosi to let him open an impeachment inquiry.
Nadler prevailed in a fight against a proposed Trump development on the west side of Manhattan and many trace the bad blood back to that battle.
....I got along very well with Jerry during the zoning and building process. Then I changed course (slightly), became President, and now I am dealing with Congressman Nadler again. Some things never end, but hopefully it will all go well for everyone. Only time will tell!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 9, 2019
