Pelosi And Schumer Ditch Trump Meeting In Response To Twitter Attack

On Tuesday morning, an unhinged President Trump fired off a ranting Twitter attacks against House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), insulting and accusing them of not having the best interests of the country at heart. The sudden outburst came in advance of a scheduled meeting between the Democratic leaders and the president.

The president’s tweet immediately backfired. Pelosi and Schumer rightfully saw the hostile tweet as a signal that meeting with Trump would be a waste of time.

The two leaders released a joint statement, announcing that they would no longer be attending the bipartisan meeting with Trump.

Instead, they will be meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Presumably, the Democrats expect a more reasonable and stable conversation with the two veteran Republicans.

While it’s unlikely that the parties will come to an agreement given that Republicans want to give a massive handout to the rich at the expense of the middle class, the meeting is still bound to be infinitely more productive than the Trump face-to-face would have been.

In their statement, Pelosi and Schumer added that they “don’t have time to waste,” a subtle jab at the carnival-style theatrics Trump is constantly choosing to engage in over actual governance.

Phil Mattingly of CNN tweeted out the official statement:

If Donald Trump were truly interested in getting something accomplished as president, he’d stop tweeting and delete his account. Every new unhinged tweet pushes potential allies further away and entrenches enemies deeper, making compromise impossible.

He can’t insult elected officials and then expect their cooperation. President Trump continues to sabotage himself, and the American people, at every turn. Good on Pelosi and Schumer for refusing to partake in Trump’s childish games.
