Trump ‘Pouted For Minutes’ Then Stormed Out Of Meeting With Dems After Nancy Pelosi Dropped The Hammer On His ‘Cover-Up’
Donald Trump was set to have a meeting between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). But according to Democratic staffers who were at the White House, Trump came into the room, lashed out at Pelosi for accusing him of a “cover-up” and then stormed out of the room.
In remarks earlier in the day, Pelosi had said that Democrats believe the president and his team are responsible for covering up obstruction of justice.
MSNBC’s Craig Melvin reported details of Trump’s short meeting with Democrats.
“Two Democratic sources with knowledge of the meeting between President Trump and Democrats — again, this was a meeting set to talk about infrastructure,” Melvin reported.
According to Melvin, Trump arrived late to the meeting only to stay there for a few short minutes.
“President Trump walked in and said I’m for infrastructure, trade and the farm bill and I want to do all of it,” the Democratic sources told MSNBC. “But I just heard Pelosi say horrible things. She said I’m involved in a cover-up. [Democrats] had a meeting at 9 a.m. on this issue and it’s so inconsiderate.”
“You need to get all of your investigations over before we talk about anything else,” the staffers said, summarizing the president’s remarks. “The president — quote — pouted for a few more minutes and then walked away. It was exactly what he did in the shutdown meeting when he walked out.”
