WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Donald Trump of having a "temper tantrum" over Democratic investigations Wednesday and suggested his Rose Garden blowup was about politics more than infrastructure. 

"Sadly, the only job the president seems to be concerned with is his own," Pelosi wrote in a letter to lawmakers released to reporters. "He threatened to stop working with Democrats on all legislation unless we end oversight of his administration and he had a temper tantrum for us all to see."

Trump informed Democratic leaders that he wouldn't work with them on shared priorities such as infrastructure unless they abandoned investigations into his presidency. In an unexpected appearance in the Rose Garden, Trump said he told Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer that it would be impossible to go forward on discussions while "phony" congressional investigations hang over his administration.
