NBC News reported that Trump slammed Democrats on Twitter before the meeting, calling them “obstructionists.”
“The Democrats have no message, not on economics, not on taxes, not on jobs, not on failing #Obamacare. They are only OBSTRUCTIONISTS!” Trump tweeted.
Trump then doubled down on this attack when he opened the meeting with his cabinet.
“They are obstructionists and that’s sad. But we are coming up with something that I believe will be very, very good with zero support from the obstructionists,” he said.
Trump went on to say that despite the road blocks Democrats like Pelosi and Schumer have put in place, he still has already accomplished more than most presidents in U.S. history.
“Never has there been a president — with few exceptions, in the case of FDR he had a major Depression to handle — who’s passed more legislation, who’s done more things than what we’ve done,” Trump told his cabinet members. “I think we’ve been about as active as you can possibly be at a just about record-setting pace.”
