Trump Storms Out When Pelosi Tells Him "No"

Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer just went to the White House to meet with Donald Trump to try to negotiate an end to the shutdown, and here's what happened:

Chuck Schumer, at a press conference outside the White House, with Nancy Pelosi standing beside him: Well, unfortunately, the president just got up and walked out. He asked Speaker Pelosi, "Will you agree to my wall?" She said no. And he just got up and said, "Then we have nothing to discuss," and he just walked out. Again, we saw a temper tantrum, because he couldn't get his way, and he just walked out of the meeting.
In case you're wondering whether Trump disputes Schumer's description of what transpired, the answer is nope! He tweeted: "Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!"

Note to Trump: Getting up and storming out and refusing to negotiate isn't working, either.

My profound gratitude to Nancy Pelosi for holding firm.
