President Trump walks out on White House meeting with Democrats

Intro

President Donald Trump angrily walked out of a meeting with Democratic leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, after they were probes into his links to Russia, as the top Democrat in Congress accused the president of a “cover-up” that could be an impeachable offense.

President Trump in anger shut down a White House meeting announcing he could not deal with them on policy until “phony investigations” are brought to a close.

The clash marked a dramatic escalation in Trump’s war of words with congressional opponents seeking to bring him to account for what they say is presidential wrongdoing.

Trump’s ire was seemingly triggered by House Speaker Pelosi, his nemesis in Congress, who declared following an emergency meeting with lawmakers earlier Wednesday: “We believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”
