President Donald Trump called a surprise press conference to blast House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who accused him of masterminding a “coverup.” Trump then canceled an infrastructure meeting with top Democrats.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Trump lashed out at Pelosi, who earlier that day declared “we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a coverup,” following a meeting with the entire Democratic caucus.

“I don’t do coverups,” the president said, before declaring the ‘Russiagate’ investigation a “takedown attempt” against him, and “the greatest hoax in history.”

The president had met with Pelosi (D-California) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) to discuss a bipartisan, $2 trillion infrastructure plan moments beforehand, but cut the meeting short.
