President Donald Trump is insisting he “was extremely calm” on Wednesday as he refused to meet with Democrats to discuss infrastructure, instead gathering reporters for a press conference to bash special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a letter to Congressional colleagues Wednesday night said Trump walked out of infrastructure talks with party leaders over Democrats’ continued investigations into his administration.
Trump countered Pelosi’s account in tweets on Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.
“I was purposely very polite and calm, much as I was minutes later with the press in the Rose Garden,” he wrote in one tweet.
“I was extremely calm yesterday with my meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, knowing that they would say I was raging, which they always do, along with their partner, the Fake News Media,” Trump wrote.
“Very calm. No temper tantrum,” Conway said.
Trump proceeded to blast Democrats for 12 minutes, accusing them of a “witch hunt” and claiming he is “the most transparent president in history.”
