As Twitchy told you, Donald Trump met with Sen. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi this afternoon to discuss the border wall. Schumer gave his account of what happened:
According to Schumer, Trump walked out of the meeting after Pelosi said she wouldn't support the border wall.

But for what it’s worth, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy is calling B.S. on Schumer’s version of events:
.@GOPLeader: "I just listened to Senator Schumer. I know he complained the time that you had cameras in the meeting. I think we need to bring them back. Because what he described the meeting to be is totally different than what took place." pic.twitter.com/4gBgN8s3gt

There’s no way to ever know what really went down in that meeting — though we certainly wouldn’t put it past Chuck Schumer to bend the truth.
Chuck Schumer says they will "discuss anything" while Nancy says the wall is off the table completely.
