Donald Trump Walks Out On Democrats During Meeting Over $5.6Billion US Mexico Border Wall
President Donald Trump stormed out of negotiations on Wednesday on funding a US-Mexico border wall when Democratic opponents said they would not agree to the project.
“A total waste of time,” Trump tweeted about his meeting with top Democratic congressional leaders. “I said bye-bye, nothing else works!”
Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader in the Senate, told journalists: “The president just got up and walked out.”
Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!
