President Donald Trump walked out of a Wednesday meeting with Democratic leaders to resolve the government shutdown after seeing it as a “waste of time.”
Trump and congressional leaders have met numerous times throughout the partial government shutdown to resolve it with little success.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have opposed his border wall plan. Trump walked out of the latest meeting with them with still no solution in sight.
“Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time,” Trump tweeted.
“I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve border security which includes a wall or steel barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works.”
