"Petulant" Trump Storms Out Of "Waste Of Time" Meeting With Schumer And Pelosi

•, By Tyler Durden

"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."
