WATCH: Pelosi Says of Trump: ‘I Knew the President Was Not Serious About Infrastructure and Would Find a Way Out’

What she said.

After storming out of an infrastructure meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other congressional Democrats, President Donald Trump took to the Rose Garden for a press conference.

Trump railed against the multiple investigations into him and his administration, also targeting the reporters present for covering the investigations. Trump then asserted that, as long as there are investigations against him, he will not work with Democrats on infrastructure funding:

“I walked into the room and I told Senator Schumer and House Speaker Pelosi, ‘I want to do infrastructure, I want to do more than you want to do it, but, you know what? You can’t do it under these conditions, get these phony investigations over with.'”

As Trump stormed out of the meeting, Pelosi reportedly said:

“I knew the president was not serious about infrastructure and would find a way out.”

the president’s refusal to work with Democrats to secure $2 trillion in funding for the nation’s infrastructure projects while under investigation left many flabbergasted. Nevertheless, Trump doubled down on Twitter.


Despite Trump’s claims, it’s completely possible—and required by the oath of office—for a president to remain productive even when under investigation.

Others were quick to point this out, using former Democratic President Bill Clinton as an example.

Others were unsettled by the disturbing ultimatum.

Make it work, Donald.
