One of the last times President Trump met face-to-face with Chuck and Nancy, as he calls the Democratic leaders of the Senate and House, it didn’t go swimmingly.
The president asked for a border wall; they refused. He said Nancy was reluctant to negotiate on camera; she bristled on camera. He said he would proudly shut down the government over the wall, and he did.
Nancy — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — later said the December meeting with the president was like “a tinkle contest with a skunk.”
Democrats falsely accused Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan of pushing Boeing fighter jets on the military in an attempt to derail his confirmation.
