Pelosi lectures Trump, privately questions his ‘manhood’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks to a press conference at the National Press Club

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks to a press conference at the National Press Club

"Reality Check", hosted by David Webb, is one of the many daily shows running each day on Fox Nation, available on-demand to subscribers.

U.S. House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi speaks with Vice-President Mike Pence and Trump during their meeting with Schumer in the Oval Office. Every elected and appointed government official dealing with homeland security has an obligation to protect our border to keep unsafe people out to the greatest extent possible.

Trump predicted that he might not come to an agreement with the Democratic leaders.

About 20 House Democrats who have publicly opposed Pelosi's bid to return to the speaker's chair in the next Congress are involved in the discussions, and Pelosi can only afford to lose 17 Democrats if she wants to reach a majority in the lower chamber.

Here are three takeaways from the incredible Oval Office border brawl.

There were two brief government shutdowns earlier this year, one of them provoked by Senate Democrats over immigration. The conflict between Trump and Pelosi dominated the scene, which was replete with gender politics.

Congress is seeking to finalise spending before some federal government funding expires on 21 December.

Schumer and Pelosi both said legislation to keep the government open and provide additional border security could pass both houses of Congress, but Trump said major wall funding was necessary. Instead, Trump said he'd take responsibility for any shuttering of government. "I'm going to shut it down for border security". I can't explain it to you. The last time you shut it down, it didn't work. "I will shut down the government", he declared.

"I told him about Ronald Reagan", Pelosi told the Democrats. But just as she appeared to be cooling the temperature, Schumer and Trump traded verbal blows like New Yorkers rowing over a taxi.

She reportedly added that the president's insistence on a wall was "a manhood thing".

Pelosi was quoted by USA media as telling fellow Democrats in Congress that Trump's wall push was "like a manhood thing for him, as if manhood could ever be associated with him".

Those who have watched Trump closely know he often pivots toward his conservative base when he senses political trouble. "Progress has been made and the conversations are constructive because all involved care about the institution of the House of Representatives". We shut it down.

The two Democrats told Trump that there was no support for the wall in either the Senate or the House, but he disagreed. "It's his choice to accept one of those options or shut the government down".

"I don't mind owning that issue", he said. "This wall thing", said Pelosi.

"When the president brags he has won North Dakota and IN, he's IN real trouble", retorted Schumer with a smile.

No, not Mitch Williams, the hard-throwing 1990s Major League Baseball relief pitcher best known for his time with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Republican congressional leaders have repeatedly said it's up to Trump to cut a deal with Democrats, an acknowledgment of their inability to produce spending bills with Republican votes alone.

A big problem facing Pelosi and Schumer is that their rejection of border security measures is highly unpopular.

"I thought it was a very good meeting", Trump told reporters, a group of priests behind him. "The adults will figure this out, then it'll be up to McConnell to go convince the president to go along with it. ..." "We share the president's goal".
