Nancy Pelosi: ‘I Think Meeting Was A Setup’ So ‘Unpresidential’ Trump Could Walk Out
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said her meeting with President Donald Trump and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was a setup so the president could walk out on the two Democratic leaders.
“Let me just make the clarity — not only was the president unpresidential, surprise, surprise, yesterday in his behavior, I think the meeting was a setup so he could walk out, but I’ll say just that,” Pelosi said today, while speaking at a press conference on the unsuccessful talk with Trump about re-opening the government.
“As I said to him yesterday, these people cannot go to their fathers to cover their payments, their costs, can you?” She continued. “Can any of you, if this happened to you? If you can, good luck that’s wonderful for you, but that doesn’t speak for most families in our country.”
Schumer accused Trump of acting out in last night’s meeting, leading the president to take to admit that he just walked out on the top Democrat.
Cryin Chuck told his favorite lie when he used his standard sound bite that I “slammed the table & walked out of the room. He had a temper tantrum.” Because I knew he would say that, and after Nancy said no to proper Border Security, I politely said bye-bye and left, no slamming!
