Because he doesn't have to do his job if he is mad? Do we not need infrastructure? isnt that a way to bring jobs to middle america? Shouldn't he still want to do that?

Love the new sign the President had posted near the podium.
What did he "win?" Where's the victory.

No new legislation passed today. No major foreign policy victory today. No big economic announcement. Just the usual rhetorical screeds against Nancy and Chuck. And Trumpers already had their noses loyally buried up his ass before today, not like that's new.

So what exactly changed?

You need to revisit the definition of "winning;" starting to be used far too loosely around here.

The Congress can pass legislation on infrastructure. It is their job actually.

No

You don't negotiate unless its in good faith and Nancy made it quite clear when she accused him of a cover-up there would be no good faith going forward on anything.

Trump knows when to walk away from the table and he was right to do it this time just like the last time he walked out on the same lunatics.

I can't believe you just wrote that. Two years and 40 million $$ and you and the other Idiots Democrats are still in denial.
You couldn't find Collusion on any American Citizen by the man you said was the end all SC.

Now you falsely claim he was never looking for Russian collusion.

You are right in the fact they were trying to pen a Obstruction charge on Trump from the very beginning since the Corrupt Mueller team knew from the start there was no Collusion.

It's all been about bringing down an elected President.

That will be shown very shortly. Classified documents will be declassified within the next 10 days.

Some of you Trump supporters here are starting to sound a little worried...
Oh....OK......Thanks for nothing

there's certainly no reason for Trump to go along with any pretense by the Democrats that they're interested in helping run the country. their sole purpose since the 2016 election has been to destroy Trump, and now that they control the House, their efforts have only intensified.

no significant legislation is going to be enacted until after the next election....and god save the nation if that election brings the Democrats complete control......so Trump's refusal to give them cover until then is both understandable and shrewd.

Trump needs to just continue calling out the Democrats for what they are and let the cards fall where they may.

Hopefully the Conservative base will be motivated enough to get out the vote next year and stop these shenanigans.

At least with Trump in the Presidency and retaining the Senate we are weekly getting the right Judges put in place. Hopefully that continues for 6 more years.
