Chuck Schumer pledged from day one to obstruct Donald Trump's agenda.
Schumer and his Democrat allies figured this was the key to defeating the President in 2020.
But Chuck Schumer just got hit with this rude awakening that was the biggest shock of his life.
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi led a delegation of Democrats to the White House for a second meeting on an infrastructure bill.
President Trump campaigned on passing such a bill, and he figured this was a meeting where President Trump and the Democrats could bragin in good faith on a bill that would deliver a win.
But the night before the meeting House Democrats held a closed-door meeting where rank and file members pressured Nancy Pelosi to move forward with impeachment.
Polls show that is a disastrous course of action so to keep her left flank at bay Pelosi pledged patience and accused Trump of engaging in a "cover-up."
President Trump heard these remarks and realized the Democrats were staging another phony negotiation to kill time as they harassed the President with politically motivated fishing expeditions.
So when the meeting was scheduled to begin, Trump called the Democrats on their bluff.
Without even sitting down, Trump told the Democrats they could legislate of they could investigate, and he ended the meeting and walked out.
The President described his actions in a Rose Garden press event.
"I came here for a meeting with Democrats, not thinking that they wanted to do infrastructure or anything else other than investigate," Trump declared. "Nancy Pelosi, just before our meeting, made a statement that we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up."
"I just wanted to let you know that I walked into the room and told Sen. Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, 'I want to do infrastructure, I want to do it more than you want to do it. I would be really good at that. That's what I do. But you know what? You can't do it under these circumstances. So get these phony
investigations over with,'" the President added.
Chuck Schumer responded in his own press event and admitted that Trump's actions took him by surprise.
"To watch what happened in the White House would make your jaw drop," Schumer began.
Schumer was expecting your typical Republican that rolls over in the face of Democrat threats and gives the left whatever they want.
"There were investigations going on three weeks ago when we met, and he still met with us. But now that he was forced to actually say how he'd pay for it, he had to run away, and he came up with this pre-planned excuse, and one final point — it's clear that this was not a spontaneous move on the President's part," the New York Democrat continued. "It was planned."
But Trump told the Democrats it was put up or shut up time.
By refusing to negotiate with the President in good faith Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are showing the American people that they have a single-minded goal of impeaching the President and nullifying the results of the 2016 Presidential election.
