On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated that she intends to pray for President Trump following a surprise press conference he held demanding Democrats quit investigating him.
President Trump cut short a scheduled infrastructure meeting with the Dems this afternoon after Nancy Pelosi alleged this morning that President Trump is involved in a “cover-up.”
Trump claimed he would not continue negotiating an infrastructure deal until the Dems stopped their sweeping investigations into his administration and alleged collusion with Russia.
Pelosi stated in a press conference that President Trump may have had a “lack of confidence” in negotiating the deal and suggested he used her remarks about a “cover-up” as an excuse to avoid the meeting.
“Maybe it was lack of confidence on his part that he really couldn’t match the greatness of the challenge that we have — wasn’t really respectful of the Congress and the White House working together. He just took a pass,” Pelosi said.
“It just makes me wonder why he did that. In any event, I pray for the President of the United States.” She continued.
“We went in the spirit of bipartisanship to find common ground with the president. He came into the room, made a statement — I won’t even characterize it,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.
This was the second meeting related to infrastructure after the Dems and President Trump tentatively reached a $2 trillion deal last month. Last night, President Trump sent a letter to Nancy Pelosi and Schumer asking them to ratify the USMCA before passing an infrastructure bill.
