President Trump responded to Rep. Nancy Pelosi narrative that he had a temper tantrum earlier Wednesday in the Oval Office.
Trump was supposed to meet with Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer about infrastructure, which unfortunately went south after she held a press conference claiming Trump was engaging in a cover-up.
Trump version of events was very different from the Speaker. He says he was “purposely very polite and calm.”
“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!” Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday night.

Trump reportedly walked out of a meeting with Democratic leaders when he learned about the press conference, resulting in the president holding his impromptu press conference.
Pelosi wrote a letter to the Democratic Caucus after the walkout describing Trump’s actions as a “temper tantrum.”

“Sadly, the only job the President seems to be concerned with is his own. He threatened to stop working with Democrats on all legislation unless we end oversight of his Administration and he had a temper tantrum for us all to see,” she wrote.
Pelosi just revealed the new Dem strategy for impeachment. Continue to harass until Trump and his staff ignore the harassing subpoenas enough times (based upon poll numbers) the general public (at least the left-leaning tribe and a tiny percentage of the center) feels the denials are enough “obstruction” to proceed with impeachment.
They might get their impeachment along straight party lines, but Trump will be reelected handily in 2020.
