Trump storms out of Democrat meeting

WASHINGTON — The feud between President Donald Trump and congressional Democrats reached new heights of animosity Wednesday after Trump angrily walked out of a White House meeting on the nation’s infrastructure, insisting he would not work with Democrats unless they abandon their inquiries into his businesses, presidency and personal finances.

“Get these phony investigations over with,” Trump told reporters in the Rose Garden, moments after he spent three minutes in the Cabinet Room raging against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and other Democrats.

Afterward, Pelosi called the spectacle a “temper tantrum” intended to obscure Trump’s “lack of confidence ... that he really couldn’t match the greatness of the challenge that we have” to pursue a sweeping infrastructure deal. Trump in turn accused Pelosi of a “takedown attempt,” and railed about her allegation Wednesday morning that he is ducking congressional subpoenas to act as a “coverup” for his own misbehavior.

Left in grave doubt were hopes for bipartisan agreement in looming battles over budget and trade, as well as the $2 trillion infrastructure package that had been set for discussion.
