Trump responded by trying to frame Nancy Pelosi as the one having the meltdown, but it totally backfired and added to his PR disaster
While meeting with the president of Ukraine at the UN, Trump proclaimed that as far as he was concerned Nancy Pelosi is no longer the Speaker of the House.
The House will vote on Wednesday on a resolution to condemn Trump for his Ukraine scandal. The resolution will put even more heat on the GOP to defend Trump.
Trump tried to cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi on the whistleblower, but the Speaker told the president to obey the law.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) threatened Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) if she pursues impeachment against Donald Trump.
Trump's TV lawyer Rudy Giuliani demanded that Speaker Pelosi apologize for "harming the nation" by speaking the truth about the president's instability.
Calls are growing among Democrats for the House to open an impeachment investigation into Donald Trump.
Trump dropped his demand that all investigations must end before he will work with Democrats during his meeting Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer.
The Chairman of the American Conservative Union, Matt Schlapp, went down in flames while appearing on CNN’s New Day on Monday. He first made the argument that Donald Trump’s loss to Nancy Pelosi was a win because he really got what he wanted. But after being challenged on that ridiculous statement he immediately backtracked and tried to make another argument, saying that the showdown with Pelosi was a political victory for Trump because it showed his followers that he was still fighting.
Many people are now suggesting that Democrats in Congress give Trump his border wall funding in order to get the government reopened.

The situation is similar to a terrorist hostage situation, and everyone knows that you simply do not negotiate with terrorists.
Pelosi's office then was prepared to fly commercially - an idea Trump himself raised - but announced Friday morning the trip was being postponed because the administration had leaked details that could endanger the trip or the troops the speaker was to visit. A White House official denied this.
In 2013 Donald Trump said that if there is a government shutdown the president should be fired. And this is one of the few times he has ever told the truth.
Tens of millions of Americans no doubt agree with this thought also, as the week-long “Trump Shutdown” of the U.S. government is still continuing.

Democratic leaders of Congress blasted President Donald Trump yesterday for “plunging the country into chaos.” Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) issued a statement expressing their concerns about Trump’s behavior that have caused a drop in the stock markets and a government shutdown.
On Monday they contacted the White House, asking that the president back off his threat of a partial shutdown if he doesn’t get funding for his border wall. If he doesn’t, hundreds of thousands of federal workers will stop receiving paychecks by the end of this week.
With all of the news that has come out recently about crimes committed by Donald J. Trump, many people are asking this one all-important question: How the heck can this joker still be President of the United States?
Everyone knows that Donald Trump will try to blame Democrats if he shuts down the U.S. government. But Democratic leaders in Congress are having none of it.
