President Donald Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi engaged in a public and bitter feud on Wednesday, with the president breaking off bipartisan negotiations over Pelosi’s accusations of a cover-up and Pelosi bluntly responding: “I pray for the president of the United States.”
The breakdown came as Trump declared he will not work with Democrats as long as they are investigating him. The explosive encounter at the White House shattered a feeling of good bipartisan vibes stemming for positive budget talks on Tuesday and startled attendees, who said Trump made them wait, complained about their probes, canceled the meeting and left in a span of just a few minutes.
“It wasn’t really respectful of the Congress and the White House working together. He just took a pass,” Pelosi said at a news conference after she returned to the Capitol. “I pray for the president of the United States, and I pray for the United States of America.”
Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who attended the White House meeting, said it was “high drama in the Cabinet room.”
“I don’t know where this leaves us as a nation. We have so many things that have to be done for this country and they can’t be done unless we work together,” Durbin said. “If the president walks out of the meeting, it’s a setback for the country’s priorities.”
Durbin said that Democrats couldn’t get a word in, and Pelosi told the House and Senate Democrats afterward about the importance of doing an infrastructure package….

“To watch what happened in the White House would make your jaw drop,” Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) told reporters at a press conference after Trump ripped ripped Democrats for their “phony” investigations into his administration.
“We came here very seriously,” Schumer said of the meeting, which Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the chairmen and ranking members of key House and Senate committees also attended.
The meeting was scheduled to discuss ways to pay for a tentative $2 trillion infrastructure deal. Schumer said he came to the meeting with a detailed answer to Trump’s question about where Democrats want to invest, a letter that was delivered to Democratic leaders on Tuesday….
