Trump Tears Into Pelosi and Schumer for Meeting-Skipping Stunt

RTX3K968

Donald Trump sits between empty chairs reserved for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.

The White House put out a statement on the canceled meeting, calling Schumer and Pelosi's decision "disappointing". It's where he slips back into the role of glad-handing host he played for years before waging his winning presidential campaign.

The president also said the North Korea situation will be handled seriously. Trump, in turn, wants funding for a border wall.

A temporary spending bill expires Dec. 8 and another is needed to prevent a government shutdown.

Trump met briefly with the White House pool Tuesday afternoon and addressed the meeting that included House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. "The bottom line", he said, "is it is a continued effort to build a ballistic missile threat that endangers world peace, regional peace, and certainly the United States".

More than likely all this gambit will accomplish is to buy Republicans a couple of extra weeks to figure out what they actually want and are actually willing to accept in spending negotiations that would simply be shifted into early January.

These talks floored Republicans. Schumer reiterated that Democrats won't meet with Trump because of the tweet, which he said indicated that the president "isn't serious" about negotiating with them but is serious about scoring political points by dissing them. Particularly concerned were members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. McConnell suggested this was a very unusual move by Schumer and Pelosi. Now he's using that as a reason not to negotiate?

Waiting for a popular tax measure with Trump's name attached to it would be a long wait.

That optimism came crashing down Tuesday.

In a break from past administrations, the Trump White House does not typically disclose when the president is golfing - let alone who he is golfing with - leaving reporters scrambling to comb social media for clues. They're weak on crime, they're weak on illegal immigration.

The Republican GOP slogan of being the party of "family values" is an empty barrel, as their leader embodies character traits we instruct our children as deplorable.

According to two manufacturers in Missouri, they plan to do the same. The top Democrats in the House and Senate boycotted the meeting after Trump tweeted this morning he didn't expect to reach a bipartisan deal.

"And since then his whole rhetoric has changed", Durbin said. The con-man and his congressional enablers are now pushing his "Big, Fat Tax Cuts" that mostly benefits corporations and the wealthiest in America, masked as tax reform. Trump has stopped reimbursing insurers for the subsidies. In his hot-mic moment in mid-September, he told his colleague that he had warned Trump about going to the "far right". Trump you are truly unbelievable as you have validated yourself to be a pathological liar! "He gets that", Schumer said.

That prediction remains very much in doubt.
