Trump Blows Up Meeting with Pelosi, Refuses to Do His Job Until Dems Drop Investigations

In case you missed it, Nancy Pelosi — caving to pressure from Democrats who want to begin impeachment proceedings — told reporters this morning, “We do believe that it’s important to follow the facts. We believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States, and we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”

Pelosi, Schumer and other Democratic leaders were then set to meet with Trump soon thereafter to discuss improving infrastructure. Democrats and Trump agreed in spirit on spending $2 trillion to do so, but Trump had found zero ways to come up with even $1 trillion and, besides, on the eve before meeting over infrastructure, Trump changed his mind and decided not to move ahead with an infrastructure plan until Democrats agreed on a trade deal, a bait-and-switch I assumed he learned from the ghostwriter of The Art of the Deal.

In either case, it’s all moot, because Trump walked into the meeting with Democratic leaders today to discuss infrastructure, but in light of Pelosi’s comments that Trump is “engaged in a cover-up,” decided to blow up the meeting, which he learned from The Art of the Deal: Toddler Edition.

The Democrats are not going to drop their investigations. In fact, the Democrats are only going to increase the number of investigations and apply more pressure, which basically means that Trump won’t even entertain legislation as long as he is in office, which is to say: What even is the point of Trump now?

In either respect, the man is not helping his case.
