Trump Angrily Flung Down Papers After ‘Chuck And Nancy’ Meeting


Based on his body language, President Donald Trump appeared displeased after Tuesday’s wild televised debate and subsequent meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

According to a Los Angeles Times report, Trump flung down a folder after exiting the meeting, sending the papers inside flying.

A West Wing staffer told the LA Times that the meeting, in which Pelosi especially refused to back down to Trump’s demands, sent White House aides into “damage-control mode.”

Trump said in front of cameras that he would be “proud” to shut down the government over border security, a damaging sound bite that set a smirk firmly upon Schumer’s face.

“The aftermath of that meeting was not pretty,” the staffer added.
