Trump Refuses to Back Down Against Pelosi, Democrats

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had a blowout public feud [1], with the “president detonating bipartisan negotiations over the speaker’s accusations of a ‘cover-up.’”

Trump did not back down from the speaker; he declared that he will not work or negotiation with congressional Democrats if they keep up their ongoing ‘witch hunt’ investigation into him and his administration.

Though Pelosi was caught in a major flip-flop just hours before on Capitol Hill she continued on as if nothing was wrong. Early Wednesday, in a private meeting, she strongly urged her 235-member caucus to back down from calling out and pushing for a Trump impeachment.

Immediately after she told multiple reporters that, “We [Democrats] believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”

Trump called on the press in the Rose Garden saying, “I don’t do cover-ups. You people know that probably better than anybody.”

Moments later, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer held their own press conference. Pelosi said, “I pray for the president of the United States, and I pray for the United States of America.”


Trump and senior White House officials have said that they are the party serious about things important to the American people — such as infrastructure and the economy.

Trump said [1], “I walked into the room and I told Senator Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, I want to do infrastructure. I want to do it more than you want to do it. I’d be really good at that. That is what I do. But you know what, you can’t do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations over with.”

Throughout Wednesday Trump flexed his muscle against Pelosi and Democrats in a series of tweets. On top of that the Mueller investigation that was supposed to highlight Trump and Russian collusion completely failed.

Democrats want to have it both ways. They want to accuse the president of criminal activity and keep fruitless, costly investigations going into things that have already been thoroughly investigated and then they want the president to smile and make the extra effort to ignore these comments and these investigations. If Democrats truly wanted bipartisanship, then they would drop the publicity stunts and look to the future with the president and get some real work done.
