Democratic presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) slammed President Donald Trump during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday night, saying he was trying to “hold America’s infrastructure hostage” over the issue of the investigation.
Harris was referring to angry remarks Trump made at the White House earlier on Wednesday after he stormed out of a planned meeting to discuss infrastructure spending with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
During an impromptu press conference in the Rose Garden, Trump expressed indignation about Pelosi’s charge that he was engaging in a “cover-up.” He then threatened to refuse all cooperation on legislative matters with Democrats as long as they continued to look further into his personal finances and the details of the Mueller report.
“You’re on the Senate intelligence committee. Are you going to end — are you guys going to end the investigation?” Colbert asked, following up on Trump’s ultimatum.
To which Harris gave an unequivocal, one-word response: “No,” drawing cheers from the audience.
