Sen. Schumer: Trump Walked out When Pelosi Said No to Wall Funding, Said ‘We Have Nothing to Discuss’

‘This was really, really unfortunate and in my judgment somewhat unbecoming of a presidency’

SCHUMER: “Unfortunately, the President just got up and walked out. He asked Speaker Pelosi, will you agree to my wall? She said no. And he just got up and said, then we have nothing to discuss and he just walked out. Again, we saw a temper tantrum because he couldn’t get his way and he just walked out of the meeting. I asked him to open up the Government. That tomorrow so many people will have trouble paying their mortgages, paying their bills, dealing with situations when they don’t get paid and I said, just why won’t you do that, we'll continue to discuss, we’re willing to discuss anything and he said, if I open up the Government, you won’t do what I want. That’s cruel. That’s callous and that’s using millions of innocent people as sort of pawns and it was wrong. And then a few minutes later, he sort of slammed the table and when leader Pelosi said she didn’t agree with the wall, he just walked out and said, we have nothing to discuss. So he said it was a waste of his time. That is sad and unfortunate. We want to come to an agreement. We believe in border security. We have different views. We’ve already offered the President our proposals, which has sat on his desk for several weeks, but this was really, really unfortunate and in my judgment somewhat unbecoming of a presidency.”
