Trump left the meeting after berating Democrats for roughly three minutes about their investigations and Pelosi's claim that he had “engaged in a cover-up.”

Pelosi then told others who remained that former Presidents Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt worked with their opponents to solve infrastructure problems but added that she was not surprised Trump walked away, according to a source familiar with the exchange.

Conway then turned to Pelosi and asked if she had “a direct response to the president.”

When Pelosi replied that she was responding to the president, and not to his staff, Conway replied, “Really great. That’s really pro-woman of you.”

The back-and-forth underscored the animosity between Trump and Democrats following the president’s decision to pull the plug on infrastructure talks.

After leaving the meeting, Trump aired his grievances with Pelosi over her “cover-up” allegation and threatened to halt all work with Democrats if they do not stop investigating him.
