White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway confronted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, after a meeting between President Trump and Democratic lawmakers was cut short on Wednesday.
Trump cut the meeting short, which was reported as an opportunity to discuss the country’s infrastructure after Pelosi told reporters that the president “engaged in a cover-up” following a meeting with Democrats.
After president Trump left the room, Kellyanne Conway asked the Speaker if she had a “direct response to the president,” Fox News confirmed.
“I’m responding to the president, not staff,” Pelosi shot back.
Conway slammed the Speaker’s dismissal of her.
“Really great. That’s really pro-woman of you,” the White House counselor is said to have responded.
The tense moment came before president Trump blasted Democratic lawmakers with his remarks from the Rose Garden, telling reporters, “I don’t do cover-ups.”
“You can’t do it under these circumstances,” Trump said about negotiating with Democrats. “Get these phony investigations over with.”
