Donald Trump has walked out of a meeting of talks to end the partial government shutdown when congressional leaders refused to fund his wall with Mexico.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Mr Trump “just walked out” of a meeting with him and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a “temper tantrum”.
Mr Schumer said Mr Trump asked Ms Pelosi at Wednesday’s White House meeting whether she would agree to fund his wall on the southern border with Mexico.
When she said “no”, Mr Schumer said, the President got up and said: “Then we have nothing to discuss”, adding: “And he just walked out”.
