Trump’s campaign centered on fighting Democrats, not policy

Trump’s campaign centered on fighting Democrats, not policy

The U.S. leader, incensed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi contended he was "engaged in a cover-up", said he would not talk about policy issues with the Democrats as long as they continue their investigations.

Following a finger-pointing game between Donald Trump and the Democratic leadership over the results of the Mueller investigation and accusations of a "cover-up" against the U.S. president, Senator John Kennedy stepped out with advice to the House Democrats.

"It is not possible for them to investigate and legislate at the same time" because Democrats are focused on a "fishing expedition" regarding the Russian Federation report, he added. "I wish that his family, or his administration or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country", Pelosi told reporters.

"It was a very positive meeting, a respectful sharing of ideas and a very impressive presentation by our chairs", Pelosi said. You can't do it under these circumstances. In March, before issuing their subpoena, Democratic lawmakers asked Capital One for documents concerning potential conflicts of interest tied to Trump's Washington hotel and other business interests since he became president in January 2017. Trump declared he would not work with them on infrastructure after all until they shut down their "phony investigations" and strode out to fill the world in on the encounter at a Rose Garden press conference.

When Ms Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer arrived in the Cabinet Room, Mr Trump walked in, stood at the head of a long boardroom table, and told them he had asked them over to talk about infrastructure, but that the speaker had just accused him of a cover-up.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday that he doubted there was "any Democrat who probably wouldn't in their gut say: 'You know, he's done some things that probably justify impeachment.'" But he added, "I think the majority of the Democrats continue to believe that we need to continue to pursue the avenue that we've been on, in trying to elicit information, testimony, review the Mueller report, review other items going on".

"Sometimes when we're talking to him he agrees", she said, only to change his mind.

A Daily Activities screen has been introduced allowing the user to check the daily summary of calories, workouts, and movements. It's possible that Samsung could bring this camera to a mid-range A series phone, a line that is reportedly coming to the U.S.

She has been running out a string of Trump insults since the meeting on Wednesday. "I pray for the president of the United States and I pray for the United States of America".

Trump administration officials at the highest levels, including Attorney General William "Bill" Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn, have ignored multiple subpoenas from the Democratic-controlled House, to the consternation of a growing number of Democrats.

Mueller's report cited 11 instances of possible obstruction of the investigation by the president, saying that "while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".

Most of his fellow Republicans dismiss the investigations as political assaults ahead of the 2020 election. Schumer - who brought his own 35-page proposal to the meeting - said that when Trump "was forced to say how he would pay for it he had to run away". You think he'd be there or would not walk in and perform another piece of stagecraft? And it just makes me wonder why he did that.

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that the White House can not block subpoenas for Trump's financial records from Deutsche Bank, which has lent his real estate company millions of dollars.

The banks are the only defendants in the case, but the House committees intervened to oppose Trump's effort to block the subpoenas.

The decision ended a standoff between the committee and the Justice Department for access to counterintelligence reports generated by Mueller during his probe.
