Hope of bipartisanship fades as Trump ends Pelosi, Schumer meeting over "cover-up" comment

Any remaining hope of bipartisanship faded quickly Wednesday as President Trump cut short a scheduled meeting with top Democrats on infrastructure and made a surprise appearance in the White House Rose Garden to declare legislative efforts on that front — and possibly others — dead in the water until Democratic leaders “get these phony investigations over with.”

The president’s 12-minute remarks to reporters — reporters who had been hastily gathered to the Rose Garden with no prior warning or indication of what was happening — marked a clear breakdown in talks as the president appeared inflamed by remarks House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made Wednesday morning following a meeting with the Democratic caucus. Earlier that morning, Pelosi told reporters the president engaged in a “cover-up,” a claim the president dismissed as absurd.
