The Hill reports:
President Trump took to Twitter Wednesday night to deny House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) characterization of his exit from a meeting with Democratic leadership earlier in the day. Trump left the meeting, which had been scheduled to discuss a potential infrastructure package, to hold an unscheduled press briefing in the Rose Garden, where he fired back at Pelosi for saying he had engaged in a “cover-up” and vowing not to work with Democrats on infrastructure legislation while they were investigating his administration and businesses.
In a letter to her House colleagues, Nancy Pelosi said: “President Trump had a temper tantrum for us all to see.” This is not true. I was purposely very polite and calm, much as I was minutes later with the press in the Rose Garden. Can be easily proven. It is all such a lie!
