Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-NY-12) urges Trump's family and staff to have an intervention with the president after President Trump canceled their meeting, and as Pelosi describes it, "stormed out." President Trump canceled the meeting where they were supposed to discuss infrastructure after Pelosi said the president was engaged in a cover-up.

“The president stormed out, pounded the table, walked out the door. Another temper tantrum, again, I pray for the president of the United States. I wish that his family, the administration, and his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country."

President Donald Trump defends himself against news reports that he acted in a fit of rage when canceling a long-planned meeting to discuss infrastructure with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-NY-12). Trump canceled the meeting explaining that he refused to work Nancy Pelosi after she accused him of engaging in a cover-up. Trump claims that he reacted very calmly when canceling their meeting.

"I was extremely calm yesterday with my meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, knowing that they would say I was raging, which they always do, along with their partner, the Fake News Media. Well, so many stories about the meeting use the Rage narrative anyway - Fake & Corrupt Press!"

Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) shared his disappointment regarding the House's ongoing investigation into Trump's affairs, citing it as a reasonable cause of Trump's actions. He urged Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-NY-12) to return to legislation. Blunt's comments came after Trump blasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) in the White House Rose Garden after a failed meeting on infrastructure.

“I’m disappointed by the House’s actions. I think there’s more harassment than oversight going on, and even Nancy Pelosi seems to have agreed that the better thing to do is to legislate rather than to investigate. You can’t expect the president to hear that diatribe all day every day and not have a reaction."

2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg tore into Donald Trump's plan to pardon several U.S. servicemen accused or convicted of war crimes, calling it "disgusting" and "an affront" to the law.

“If you are convicted by a jury of your military peers of having committed a war crime, the idea that the president is going to overrule that is an affront to the basic idea of good order and discipline and to the idea of law ? the very thing we believe we’re putting lives on the line to defend,”

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) compared Robert Mueller's Russia investigation to a "political rectal exam." Graham emphasizes that the findings of the Mueller report did not determine that Trump was guilty of obstruction of justice. Graham criticizes Democrats for continuing to further investigate, and he claims that impeachment proceedings would only guarantee that Trump is re-elected.

“After two years of a political rectal exam, nobody’s been looked at more than Trump. They found nothing. But the answer for the Democrats is ‘Trump’s gotta go.'...They will not beat him at the ballot box and if they try to impeach him, they’re going to ensure his reelection. I want the American people to know that Bob Mueller did his job.”

After emerging from a classified briefing where top American national security officials discussed the situation in Iran, Senator Angus King (I-ME) shared his concerns regarding whose actions led to escalating tensions between the United States and Iran. Senator King commented on the danger of miscalculation and how a defensive move can appear to be offensive in the eyes of an opponent.

“Are they reacting to us, or are we doing these things in reaction to them? That is a major question I have, that I still have...The most immediate concern is the danger of miscalculation. What we view as defensive, they view as provocative. Or vice versa.”

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) praises the Trump administration for sending a strong deterrent message to Iran. His description of President Trump's threat to respond to an attack by Iran invokes a "Game of Thrones" reference of a command a character gives to her dragon to breathe fire and destroy something. This can be reasonably interpreted as Rubio emphasizing that Donald Trump will destroy Iran if they attack the United States.

“It’s a very simple equation. If Iran doesn’t attack, there won’t be any problem. If Iran attacks, the president is going to go ‘dracarys’ on them. He’s going to respond.”
