House Republican leader warns Trump against infrastructure deal with Democrats

Published

The Republican Minority Whip in the House seems to be warning President Donald Trump against an infrastructure package.

According to Politico reporter Melanie Zanona, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) said that the Republican members in the House don’t have a taste for any landmark legislation that might be an addition to the deficit.

“Minority Whip Steve Scalise says he does NOT think there is an appetite in the GOP for a $2 trillion infrastructure bill,” Zanona tweeted Monday.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are scheduled to meet with Trump Tuesday. While an agenda for the meeting has not been set, the group is expected to discuss a bipartisan deal on a huge infrastructure package that Trump promised during the 2016 campaign.

The president reportedly hates the plan that his own administration came up with. He could find a partnership with Democrats, but it may alienate members of Trump’s party.

The legislation would be the biggest test yet of Trump’s power over the Republican Party.

Body language expert dissects the power dynamic at play in the iconic Nancy Pelosi photo

Published

Last week, President Donald Trump met with Democrats at the White House to discuss the way both sides could work to fix the President's mistakes in Syria. Democrats left the White House saying that the President had another meltdown during the meeting, which prompted Trump to claim Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was the one who had a meltdown. He then posted photos of Pelosi sitting quietly and another photo of Pelosi standing and pointing at him.

Body language expert Dr. Jack Brown posted the photo and gave his own analysis of what he believed was happening in the photo.

"When a person has little or no empathy — and/or when they're far from their emotional baseline, their ability to interpret how others will view an event becomes dramatically distorted," Brown explained Sunday. "Rarely has this behavioral axiom been better exemplified than last Wednesday at the White House."
