Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York told reporters today that Donald Trump walked out of a meeting between him and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
According to Schumer, Trump asked Pelosi if she would agree to fund his border wall. When she said ‘no,’ Trump got up and walked out of the meeting saying, “Then we have nothing to discuss.”
“We saw a temper tantrum because he couldn’t get his way, and he just walked out of the meeting,” said Schumer.

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!
