Trump Cancels Meeting With Pelosi & Schumer, Holds Press Conference Attacking Dems Instead

Earlier today, President Trump abruptly ended his meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. They had gathered at the White House to discuss repairing infrastructure throughout the United States. Instead of finishing the meeting with Democratic leadership, the president decided to hold a press conference in the White House Rose Garden instead.

The meeting appears to have been disrupted by President Trump’s reaction to comments made by Nancy Pelosi earlier that day. Pelosi accused the president of engaging in a cover-up in regards to the Mueller investigation.

Pelosi addressed the comments again later that day, doubling down on her statements. “The fact is, in plain sight, in the public domain, this president is obstructing justice and he’s engaged in a cover-up. And that could be an impeachable offense,” she said.

Today’s events are reminiscent of last year’s meeting between President Trump, Pelosi, and Schumer. The three engaged in a very public disagreement regarding border security, leading to the government shutdown. Lasting 35 days, it was the longest federal government shutdown in United States history.

President Trump took to Twitter after his press conference to continue hammering Democrats.
