House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Trump of throwing a “temper tantrum” and leaving their meeting on Wednesday in a letter that she wrote today.
Speaker Pelosi explained that she tried to work with Trump on infrastructure and this had drawn skepticism from some Democrats.
“There were those who said that we should not work with the president, but we believe that we must be For The People and create good-paying jobs for American workers. Democrats are here for the country,” Pelosi wrote.
“Sadly, the only job the President seems to be concerned with is his own. He threatened to stop working with Democrats on all legislation unless we end oversight of his Administration and he had a temper tantrum for us all to see,” Pelosi wrote.
In the letter, she also wrote that relevant committee leaders will keep working on their own infrastructure bills even if Trump won’t support trillion-dollar package.
“Our outstanding Committee Chairs will continue to work relentlessly on bold, transformative infrastructure solutions that will create good-paying jobs, regardless of the president’s behavior,” Pelosi wrote.
Trump met with Democratic leaders in late April, where they agreed to pursue a $2 trillion infrastructure plan. However, Trump sent out a letter to Pelosi and Schumer, saying that Congress should approve the new deal between Canada, America and Mexico before turning to infrastructure.
