White House counselor Kellyanne Conway slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after President Trump abruptly shut down an infrastructure meeting at the White House on Wednesday.
“I knew he was looking for a way out,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said when Trump left the room after only three minutes, according to the New York Times. “We were expecting this.”
Conway, who was in the room, replied: “Respectfully, Madam Speaker, do you have a direct response to the president?”
Pelosi said she was responding to the president and not his staff.
“Really great,” Conway said sarcastically. “That’s really pro-woman of you.”
After leaving the meeting, which also included Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., Trump addressed reporters in the Rose Garden and said he was particularly upset about Pelosi suggesting he engaged in a cover-up during special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
“Instead of walking in happily into a meeting, I walk in to look at people that have just said that I was doing a cover-up. I don’t do cover-ups,” Trump said.
Trump said Democrats would have to drop investigations before he could work with them.
