On Tuesday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sparred with President Donald Trump over a range of issues, from the border wall to the government shutdown.
Schumer confronted the president for making false claims about border security, citing all the “Pinocchios” he’s gotten from The Washington Post for his lies.
Afterward, Schumer and Pelosi held a press conference.
“The bottom line is simple. The president made clear that he wants a shutdown. His position, if he sticks to his position for a $5 billion wall, he will get no wall and he will get a shutdown,” Schumer told reporters.
“The bottom line is very, very simple. That is, we want border security. We offered him border security. But Americans know that the wall, not paid for by Mexico anymore is not the way to border security,” he added.
“This Trump shutdown, this temper tantrum he seems to throw will not get him his wall and it will hurt a lot of people because he will cause a shutdown, he admitted he wanted a shutdown. It’s hard to believe he would want that.”
WATCH: Financial reporter blows the lid off Trump’s decades-long scam to lie about his wealth
Bombshell reports from the New York Times have found that President Donald Trump has lied about his wealth for decades now -- even during times when he was burning through cash and had trouble finding a bank willing to lend him money.
Financial reporter Jonathan Greenberg went on CNN Monday to expose just how Trump has kept the true status of his wealth a secret from the general public for decades.
Trump showed why his aides hate him when he berated his chief staffer in TV interview: Morning Joe panel
President Donald Trump berated his chief of staff in a moment captured by ABC News -- and panelists on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" agreed the outburst was deeply revealing.
The president interrupted an interview to order White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney out of the Oval Office for coughing while Trump answered a question about turning over his financial records.
"That was on purpose," said MSNBC analyst Mike Barnicle. "He coughed on purpose. He didn't want him to continue going down that (topic on) financial (records)."
White House reporter Jonathan Lemire, of the Associated Press, said the president's tirade wasn't unusual.
Morning Joe guest reveals why even Ivanka is afraid to deliver bad news to Trump: ‘He’ll explode’
President Donald Trump's inner circle is growing smaller and smaller, and the few aides he trusts are afraid to deliver any bad news to him -- and panelists on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" agreed the situation was dangerous.
Co-host Mika Brzezinski asked Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire if the president trusted any of his advisers, and the White House correspondent said he may still seek out counsel from Ivanka Trump.
"He might listen to his daughter, who is in there, but no," Lemire said. "That has been what's happened over the last year and a half, in particular, is the erosion of the guardrails, the erosion of adults in the room who could walk in there and say something. Mind you, it didn't always work, (but) now those people don't even exist."
