President Donald Trump spoke in the White House Rose Garden, on Wednesday, May 22, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) accused him of obstruction. Pelosi met with Democratic committees on Wednesday before meeting with the president to discuss infrastructure spending.
She also made a statement before her meeting with the president, “We believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover up.”
The president articulated exactly what he thought of her comments, “So I came here to do a meeting on infrastructure with Democrats. Not really thinking they wanted to do infrastructure, or anything else, other than investigate. … Well it turns out I’m the most and I think most of you would agree to this I’m the most transparent president probably in the history of this country.
He continued by mentioning the lowest unemployment numbers in the history of the United States, in some cases 51 years and companies are moving back to the United States.
But then the situation change as President Trump was quoted,”Things are going well, and I said let’s have the meeting on infrastructure we’ll get that done easily. That’s one of the easy ones. And instead of walking in happily into a meeting I walk in to look at people that had just said that I was doing a cover up. I don’t do cover ups.”
Of the Mueller report he recounted the numbers—More than 2500 subpoenas, over 500 search warrants, and of the 19 people that were heading up this investigation or whatever you want to call it with Bob Mueller they were contributors to the Democrat Party most of them into Hillary Clinton.
And at the end of it all, after two years of searching and spending over $25 million the president said they found “no collusion, no obstruction, no nothing.”
In a rare bi-partisan moment in the Whitehouse, Schumer, Pelosi, and President Trump came to an agreement last month on $2 billion worth of infrastructure spending. A much-needed expenditure that would upgrade the nation’s highways, railroads, bridges and broadband.
President Trump said it’s tough to negotiate with Democrats on policy while their inquiries into his presidency continue.
