You have to love this! President Trump just shamed Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer by holding a meeting with their empty seats by his side.
Watch the video:
President Trump called out Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for boycotting a White House meeting Tuesday afternoon, by leaving two seats conspicuously empty — and accusing the no-show Democratic leaders of being “all talk” and “no action.”
“And now, it’s even worse. Now it’s not even talk. So they’re not showing up for the meeting,” Trump told reporters.
But the president was sure to keep two seats empty on either side of him, along with nametags for Pelosi and Schumer.
Trump originally had scheduled a meeting at the White House Tuesday with top congressional leaders of both parties. But on Tuesday morning, Pelosi and Schumer pulled out, in retaliation for a Trump tweet suggesting they couldn’t reach a bipartisan budget deal.
