House Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi on Thursday trashed President Donald Trump's "violent" actions in office — tearing into his healthcare, tax, environmental and foreign policies.

In a no-holds-barred commentary for NBC News, the California lawmaker urged Trump to "calm down, get used to the job he has, know that his words weigh a ton, and that he really should know what he's talking about when he says something."

"What the president is doing, it's violent," she wrote. "His actions are violent. He does violence to what we want to do in health care. He does violence to the national debt by what he is adding to it. He does violence to the world, in terms of nuclear proliferation and the environment and our standing in the world, with his frivolity."

She derided Trump's plan to end subsidy payments to Obamacare insurers, arguing "he went down the wrong path."

"The bigger the pool of people buying insurance, the cheaper the premiums are, and the healthier the pool is economically," she wrote. She also wrote she doesn't think "the president fully understands his own tax bill" either.

"It is not a tax break for the middle class," she wrote. "It will increase the deficit, and it gives tax breaks to the high earners. It will curb our opportunities to invest in middle class issues…"

And she called his relations with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un "ridiculous," and his Twitter habit "beneath the dignity of the president."

"He's the president of the United States. He shouldn't be provoking a punk who is the president of North Korea, but he is," she wrote. "He's giving him almost equal status on the world stage with the back and forth, which I think is a big mistake."

She also unloaded on Trump's Iran deal strategy.

"In effect, the president is just saying, 'Stop the world.' He wants to get off, because he doesn't know how to deal with any of these issues," she wrote. "He keeps shrinking into this little world of his own, and it's really dangerous to children and to the entire planet."
