BREAKING: President Trump walks out of ‘shutdown meeting’ with Democrats (VIDEO)
President Trump met with Republican and Democrat congressional leaders in the White House Situation Room Wednesday afternoon, to discuss a resolution to the ongoing government shutdown.
However, the meeting was short-lived when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared she would not give the president any funding for border security, and he got up and walked out.
Reportedly, the House had proposed four separate bills to re-open the government and get funding in place again, but President Trump told them if they passed those funding bills he would veto them, as they included nothing for border security.
President Trump tweeted afterward, “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!”
