President Trump to Democratic leader: “Why does everyone want to impeach me, Nancy?” in shutdown meeting with Pelosi and Schumer Friday

Trump initiated the talks …by lambasting the shutdown impasse and again demanding $5.6 billion for border security, which he declared to be the minimum figure he needed to build the southern border wall he has been promising since his presidential campaign.  

… The president then told them he was willing to continue to the shutdown “for months or even years” unless the Democrats agreed.

…Mr. Trump also tried unsuccessfully to appeal to Pelosi’s Roman Catholic faith in arguing for wall funding.

“The Vatican has walls. The Vatican has walls surrounding the city,” Mr. Trump said, according to the source. “You like the Vatican, Nancy?”

“Let’s change the subject, sir,” Pelosi replied.
