Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Hotair.com: “Breaking: Trump walks out on Pelosi, Schumer after "cover-up" remarks”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

“I don’t do cover-ups,” Donald Trump declared from the Rose Garden, surprising reporters who expected the president to be meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Instead, Trump walked out on the two Democrats after Pelosi accused him of being “engaged in a cover-up.” The proposed discussions on infrastructure investment, Trump told them, could take place when Congress ended its investigations:

Per person familiar with what happened in the room before this Rose Garden presser: POTUS did not sit down or shake anyone's hand. He told Dems that "once your investigation is done – we can talk about these things." And then he left the room before anyone else could speak.

“I’ve said from the beginning — right from the beginning — you probably can’t go down two tracks. You can go down the investigation track or you can go down the investment track,” Trump said.

He said during the meeting with Democrats that he couldn’t work with them until their investigations are over. “I walked into the room, and I told Sen. Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, I want to do infrastructure,” he said. “But you can’t do it under these circumstances.”
