President Donald Trump on Wednesday lashed out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after he held a meeting with Democratic leaders.


"Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!" the president tweeted.

Trump met separately with Republican and Democratic leaders Wednesday to discuss ending the government shutdown. Trump wants $5.7 billion to build a border wall, and has refused to sign resolutions to re-open the federal government that don't include such funding.

Vice President Mike Pence said during a press conference that Trump walked out his meeting with Democrats as soon as Pelosi refused to fund his wall.
