President Donald Trump is lashing out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she used her weekly press conference to denounce him as the government shutdown continues.

“I don’t know, is this the ‘Let them eat cake’ type of attitude, or call your father for money, or this is character building for you ‘oh, it’s all going to end up very well just as long as you don’t get your paychecks?'” Pelosi was saying at the time. “I don’t quite understand why,’ as hundreds of thousands of men and women are about to miss a second paycheck tomorrow,”
