“Petulant” Trump Walks Out Of “Waste Of Time” Meeting With Schumer And Pelosi

804

President Trump fumed on Wednesday after walking out of a “waste of time” meeting with Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), after the Democratic leaders refused to approve any type of funding for his wall.

“Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!” tweeted Trump.

Vice President Mike Pence confirmed Trump’s account of the meeting, noting that after Pelosi said “No” to the wall funding, Trump “said goodbye.”

Pelosi and Schumer spoke after the meeting – with Pelosi repeating her talking points from her Tuesday night response to President Trump’s oval office address.

“Federal workers will not be receiving their paychecks,” said Pelosi. “And what that means in their lives is tragic in terms of their credit rating and their mortgage and their rent and their children’s tuition and all the rest. The President seems to be insensitive to that – he thinks maybe they can just ask their father for more money, but they can’t.”

Schumer, meanwhile, said it was impossible to negotiate with “a petulant president of the United States,” telling reporters that Trump “didn’t get his way and he just walked out of the meeting.”

Trump met with the Democratic leaders at the White House to discuss border security following his prime-time remarks from the Oval Office on Tuesday night, where he said that the partial government shutdown “could be resolved in a 45-minute meeting.”

The president has demanded $5.7 billion in funding for his wall, while Democrats have only offered $1.3 billion in funding for non-wall border security measures already penciled into the budget.

On Wednesday Trump threatened to declare a national emergency in order to build the wall, a move which Democrats have questioned the legality of.

  1. About time we had a President, such as Regan (Icelandic Arms talks) , who can and will walk away from a BS session w1th traitors! The dem/socialist traitors were only attempting to get on the propaganda medium known as the “news”. The President showed Schumer and the worthless dem/socialists that they were a waste of his time. GOOD work Mr. Predisent!

  2. The only petulant person I can identify is the author of this article…the poor snowflake communist has never gotten over the fact he kicked hrc azz…

  3. “We saw a temper tantrum”, Piglosi said. No, Nutty Nancy, you saw a common sense response to your Dumbascrap Party cabal B.S. But, you haven’t seen anything yet. President Trump will end up making you and your party look like the kindergarten class of misfits with soiled diapers that you are. You will not win. The wall will be built and you will destroy your party. GOOD!

  4. If he were “fuming”it would have been at Pelosi and Schumer who have refused moving a scintilla; whereas, OUR PRESIDENT has moved from huge concrete, to steel, to a barrier; from all along the border to where it needs to be. He has included the latest technology, as well as manpower, additional judges to alleviate the backlog for those applying. What more do the DEMONcrats want? Oh, yeah, totally open borders so you and I can support these ILLEGAL INVADERS to the tune of $82,000/yr per ILLEGAL and totals in the BILLIONS. All the DEMONcrats want to do is punish us for voting for candidate Trump and rejecting their hand-picked queen. Moreover, they hate America and are doing all they can to destroy it, our Constitution and OUR PRESIDENT!!! They are continuing OWEbama’s legacy and ideology.

  5. Pelosi needs to repeat her last statement because she gets too confused if she has to come up with something new. She needs to retire. I know she thinks she is what we all need, but her plans for America will lead us to being Obama’s Third World Country. “Not exceptional, just one country of many.”

  6. It is very apparent that Schumer and Pelosi could care less about the American people and our lives. All they care about is adding more illegals for their “immoral” votes. The only thing immoral is their killing of innocent babies in the womb and same sex marriage. Where are all the other men and women in the Congress and Senate, don’t they understand the necessity for the wall to protect our sovereignty? I can’t believe that Trump has to fight this alone!
