The two leaders, in a continuing dispute over the border walls, were brought together on Thursday at the Annual Friends of Ireland for lunch. Both kept their remarks free from partisan jabs and focused on celebrating and "thrusting" the friendship between the US and Ireland.
"I was told that this is the easiest introduction for the next person I want to introduce to you," Pelosi said. "The appropriate introduction is Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States."
Trump responded by thanking Pelosi for her "lovely remarks" and congratulating her on her Irish grandchildren.
Earlier this week, despite their political concept, they seemed to agree on differences.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Pelosi said that Trump's charges for the country were too fissile. He is "just not worth it," she added.
Trump later tweeted that he valued her comments very much.
I appreciate Nancy Pelosi's statement against the impeachment trial very much, but everyone has to remember the insignificant fact that I've never done anything wrong. Economy and unemployment are the best, military and veterinarians are great – and many other achievements! How are you accused …
