Pelosi questions Trump's manhood, compares him to skunk after border wall meeting

Trump, top democrats openly spar in oval office over border wall

Mr Trump exchanged heated words with Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker-designate of the House, and Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, who met the president to try to end the impasse over funding the building of a wall along the Mexican border.

Bickering with the Democratic leaders in front of the press, Trump threatened on Tuesday to shut down the government if Congress doesn't provide the money he says is needed for the wall at the Mexican border.

The president is seeking US$5 billion (£3.93 billion) for the border wall, a campaign promise that he has made into a central issue as Congress seeks to finalise spending before some federal government funding expires on December 21. "I know he doesn't believe in government, and I know he doesn't know that much about what's at risk if he shuts it down". Schumer accused Trump of throwing a "temper tantrum" during the meeting, while Pelosi dared Trump to "do it" and press ahead with the shutdown. I think the Oval Office is an evidence-free zone.

"This proposal, which was developed by members who care about the institution of the House of Representatives, would provide that members in senior leadership positions can serve three terms with an additional term with two-thirds support of the caucus", wrote Pelosi in a Wednesday statement. But the session quickly unraveled as he mentioned his promised wall along the US-Mexico border.

"The fact is we did get him to say, to fully own that the shutdown was his", she said to applause, according to the aide.

"If you really want to find out how effective a wall is, just ask Israel", Trump said.

Trump claimed in another tweet that Democrats "for strictly political reasons and because they have been pulled so far left, do NOT want Border Security".

Only 28% of those polled answered that the border wall should be an immediate priority, while 19% replied it shouldn't be an immediate priority, and 50% said it shouldn't be a priority at all.

The two Democrats and the president sparred over funding for the Mr Trump's proposed border wall.

Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, said his party would fight for Trump's $5 billion request, but he also encouraged bipartisan talks to continue.

"I need you to give me great understanding and wisdom, Lord, '" Pelosi added, NBC News said. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement it was a "constructive dialogue" and said Trump was "grateful" the cameras captured him fighting to protect the border.

"He said, 'That's news!"

With the 51 Republicans needing 60 votes to pass the package, Democrats refused to support it as they demanded help for "Dreamers" - more than 700,000 immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children.

Trump said earlier Tuesday that he could order the military to do the work if Congress refused to fund construction - although it was not clear that he had the authority. "We simply are not", she said.
