Petulant child turns “Infrastructure Week” into a publicity stunt

By: TDF Staff

Infrastructure Week was cut short today by Donald Trump after 4 minutes. Donald Trump walked out of his meeting with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and headed for the Rose Garden with pre-printed “Mueller probe by the numbers” fact sheets and charts.

“I want to do infrastructure,” Trump claimed, “but you know what, you can’t do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations over with,” he commanded.

Shortly after the petulant child that was somehow voted in to office finished his newest unhinged tirade, Pelosi and Schumer held their own press conference, in which they admitted that they were ambushed by Trump.

“We had hoped that we could give this president the opportunity to have a signature infrastructure initiative,” Pelosi said, “For some reason — maybe a lack of confidence on his part that he couldn’t match the greatness of the challenge before him — … he just took a pass.”

Today’s showboating is further proof that Trump is running scared. Now that his arguments are losing in court and his taxes and desperate financial situation, along with possible criminal activity, might be revealed for all to see.

Trump blasted the “fake news media” in a tweet 45 mins ago. This time regarding the chatter that there is infighting within his administration regarding his policy towards Iran. He of course denies there is. Shocker.
