Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump said in impromptu remarks Wednesday that he told Democrats at the White House he couldn't work with them while they were pursuing investigations into him and his administration.

The Rose Garden speech came after an abbreviated meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who were there to discuss a bipartisan infrastructure spending package.

He said during the meeting with Democrats that he couldn't work with them until their investigations are over.

Earlier Wednesday, Pelosi had told reporters Trump was engaged in a "cover-up."

31. ALL governments work on massive mushroom farming to various degrees...

You DO understand the philosophical concept of government mushroom farming, don't you?
KEEP THEM IN THE DARK AND THROW SHIT ON THEM!
Agreeably, it is a neo-Machiavellian concept.

No point in legislating, not that there was one anyway. What are McConnell’s plans for the Equality Act?

9. But, investigations are a big part of their job as the House.

Y'know, oversight.

If he couldn't stand the scrutiny he should've stayed out of the kitchen.

RESIGN! Save yourself.

Donald doesn't seem to be doing very well with that.

We have the mental equivalency of a 12 year brat squatting in the White House, doing nothing. What a joke of a presidency.

Judge Mehta's ruling on Mazar, Justice backpedals and agrees to release redacted portions of SC Report to Congress, Micheal Cohen's phone search warrant shows records of over a thousand contacts with principal Russians dated after election day.

19. Yet another coverup tactic

Since it's all about ME and not the good of the country, you guys had better stop investigating ME, or you can forget about less-important stuff like governance and legislation to address critical infrastructure needs.

24. Because Nancy and Chuck knew Trump had nothing...

and that he would find a way and an excuse not to do anything.

This does two things.

1. It proves that the Dems are willing to work on this and they have an actual plan.

2. It proves that Trump and the Repubs got nothing and are just obstructing.

Now it's up to the media to show this in the proper light.
