People need to tie this into another situation:
Senate Republicans Finally Release Their Corona Virus Plan: Let Pelosi Handle It

President Trump traveled to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to discuss a coronavirus economic stimulus package with Senate Republicans. Any bill would have to be approved by the Democratic-led House, where Trump's big idea, a payroll tax cut, is a nonstarter. So why didn't he also meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)? "Trump and Nancy Pelosi aren't exactly on speaking terms," Politico reports, "so he's deputized Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to handle talks with the speaker."

Senate Republicans are also leery of the payroll tax cut, especially as Trump gave the impression he wants the taxes used to fund Social Security and Medicare slashed to zero, permanently, The Washington Post reports. Pelosi's caucus is already putting together its own bill funding paid sick leave for workers and lunches for students whose schools are closed during the outbreak. Mnuchin "is going to have ball control for the administration, and I expect that will speak for us as well," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said after meeting with Trump. "We're hoping that he and the speaker can pull this together."

On MSNBC Tuesday, CNBC's Eamon Javers said the White House doesn't think it "would end well" if Trump met with Pelosi. "It's a tragic statement that because he's so wounded — I mean, we're in the middle of a national crisis, and he can't get in a room with the speaker of the House?" host Nicole Wallace asked. "What the White House would say is, that's Pelosi's fault," Javers said. "Because she ripped up his speech, she's been tough on him, she impeached him, and therefore the president has every right to not want to be in a room with her."

In fact, White House spokesman Judd Deere said Monday that Trump had declined Pelosi's invitation to attend the annual St. Patrick's Day lunch — a bipartisan tradition that started in 1983 as a fence-mending gathering hosted by House Speaker Thomas "Tip" O'Neill (D-Mass.) for President Ronald Reagan — because "the speaker has chosen to tear this nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric."

"You know, Bill Clinton built part of his political narrative by saying 'I feel your pain,'" former Rep. David Jolly (R-Fla.) told Wallace on Tuesday. "Donald Trump is asking the nation to feel his, and it is a weird leadership quality in a moment of crisis."

This article is a perfect example of why the orange clown needs to go.
We need a plan (above and beyond Pence's focus), and Trump is too busy nursing his supposed "wounds" he got from "winning". He's developed a grudge whereby (like before with the Government shutdown he claimed he would own and then tried to blame Dems for) he is obviously wanting to throw more blame for things not working in his administration.

He is basically a spoiled, snot-nosed rich 12 year old brat trapped inside the bloated pear-shaped body of a carnival barker. he is not just the most corrupt and dishonest president ever, he might also be the stupidest and least connected to reality.

Trump isn't dumb enough to fall for Nancy's trick.

He knows she just want another photo op and a chance to play over-aged mean girl.

Sorry Nancy!

Point your finger, tear up speeches and clap sarcastically on your own time.

If Nancy Pelosi reallly wants to do something about CV, let her get her ass to work and originate a spending bill like the House she "leads" is supposed to. Make it so good the GOP Senate will be scared not to pass it and Trump will be scared not to sign.

He's a socialist at heart, always has been. Send him the bill. He'll take full credit for it and sign it.

But that part about him taking full credit won't bother a mature non-partisan leader who just wants what's best for the people, I'm sure.

Trump is a petty, mean, vindictive, narcissistic, and most importantly, highly insecure little bully. He doesn’t understand that no matter how opposed the parties may be, at some point they HAVE to sit down and talk. They HAVE to compromise for the good of the country. He sees every political move or comment as a personal attack.

He’s a shitty fucking little dictator wannabe who is incapable of being the bigger man and actually LEADING the country. He’s a total reactionary.

Politics in this country is a full contact blood sport. Trumplethinskin is mentally unequipped for the job he ran for.

You seriously believe that Trump is the only one guilty of being childish?

TO SKIP A STEP:

You now say, "they're not the president."

True, but they are the ones Trump has to work with and for them to pull the shit they've pulled on him and whine that he doesn't make nice is silly.

Your attempts at distraction do nothing to defend the man you so obviously love and actually make you appear as a pansy Trumphumping spittle drop....if you are attempting to make someone (anyone) look good you have dismally failed. This action and attitude from the POTUS is not only childish it is dangerous.

What trick?
Trump is rejecting any contact regardless of whether it is legit or a trick.
In the professional world, that would be the equivalent of refusing to work with another person based on the possibility that there could be a trick.

Even worse, IT IS THE REPUBS who are insisting Pelosi should come up with the plan in the first place.
And you blindly blame Pelosi, based on absolutely no misdeed on this project in the first place for a situation THAT THE REPUBS ARTIFICIALLY CREATED ALL BY THEMSELVES???

ROFLMAO!
Your comment is hilarious.
Pelosi hasn't done a damn thing on this situation that you can show is wrong.
Repubs are the one who created this artificial conundrum.

A) Repubs insist Pelosi come up with a plan.
B) Trump (another Repub) insists he won't work with Pelosi.

And you are blindly siding with the Repubs.

It's always a trick with that woman.

Which is a good idea, if you are tired of being tricked by that person.

No misdeed on this project.

Yet.

Let me guess: You don't admit any misdeeds by Pelosi, ever?

Her past behavior doesn't give a bit of confidence that she is suddenly sincere this time.

All she wants do to is either have a public meeting so she can grandstand or a private meeting so she can twist whatever happens and say Trump doesn't care about sick people.

Maybe if she hadn't pulled that lame impeachment signing multi-pen "ceremony" after crying crocodile tears about how solemn it all was, I'd over-look the sarcastic clapping and speech ripping at the state of the union and the other nonsense she's pulled.

If Nancy cares some much about health issues, let her hold hearing on the street people crises in her own district. You talk about a breeding ground for disease spread.
