Trump storms out of meeting, denies cover-up

From Morning Report, 8:41 am on 23 May 2019

US President Donald Trump has told Democrats he will not work with them on a two trillion dollar infrastructure project unless they drop what he calls their phoney investigations into him. Mr Trump walked out of a meeting with congressional leaders after the House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, accused of him engaging in a cover-up. Shortly afterwards he told reporters it was an absurd accusation. Our correspondent in Washington DC is Giles Gibson.
