Nancy Pelosi has said that Donald Trump was a "stain on our country" and "unworthy to be president" in a new interview, which was released on his last full day in office.

The House Speaker spoke with MSNBC's Joy Reid, who reiterated reports that Trump will not be greeting the incoming President, as is tradition, which the host said: "may be appropriate since he tried to undo the election."

Reid then asked Pelosi how she thought the US would be impacted after experiencing something other than a peaceful transfer of power for the first time in the country's history.

Pelosi responded by telling Reid that she believes that "we are bigger than all of this", before going on to say:

"Donald Trump was a stain on our country. I don't think we could have sustained our democracy if he had two terms in office, for what he was doing to our institutions, or for what he was doing to our constitution. He dishonored it.

"He, in every respect, was unworthy to be president, did not respect the office that he held, and certainly did not respect the office that the rest of us hold as well.

"I respect the office of the presidency more than he did, for how he mistreated it. So, in any event, he's gone."

Ms. Pelosi then said it's not so much "lessons learned" as it was apparent the kind of President he would be.

She said it was "so evident all along what a disgrace he was" but now that the president is on his way out, we have to "find out how we can bring people together - that's our responsibility," she said.

"And again, no one better than Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to do that," she added.

Pelosi presided over both of Trump's impeachments, making him the first president in US history to be impeached more than once. She had even worn the exact same dress at both impeachments.

Today, (Wednesday, January 20), Joe Biden will be inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States.
