President Donald Trump scolded Fox News reporter David Spunt for suggesting there was “no hope” of a deal with Democrats during Monday’s press conference.
“What do you know?” Trump asked in reply.
[…] Spunt began by asking why Trump hadn’t called Democratic leaders — namely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer— and met with them at the White House in the hopes of moving forward on a deal to keep the economy moving.
“If they don’t want to meet, it is on them. A lot of people are criticizing you. I cover you on the weekends —” Spunt continued.
“I don’t think they are,” Trump interrupted.
