WATCH: Nancy Pelosi Says Donald Trump ‘Thinks Maybe They Could Just Ask Their Father for More Money. But They Can’t’

Oof.

President Donald Trump held a meeting with Congressional leaders at the White House on Wednesday to continue negotiating reopening the federal government, which has been shut down since December 22 over Trump’s unyielding demand for a border wall.

Trump reportedly stormed out of the Situation Room following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) refusal to fund a border wall in exchange for Trump ending the shutdown.

Speaking to reporters as she exited the White House, Pelosi offered a blistering rebuke of Trump’s obstinance, speaking up for the hundreds of thousands of federal workers who will not receive a paycheck if the government remains closed through Friday.

“The president seems to be insensitive” to the financial woes of the federal workforce, Pelosi said, before taking a huge swipe at Trump and his wealth.

“He thinks maybe they can just ask their father for more money. But they can’t.”

Pelosi continued:

“If you don’t understand financial insecurity,” the Speaker added of Trump, “then you would have a policy that takes pride in saying: ‘I’m going to keep government shut down for months or years unless you totally agree to my position.'”
