President Trump on Wednesday tore into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) after he abruptly ended a meeting with the Democratic leaders.

Trump argued in a series of tweets that congressional Democrats can "continue the Witch Hunt which has already cost $40M and been a tremendous waste of time and energy for everyone in America, or get back to work."

"You can't go down two tracks at the same time. Let Chuck, Nancy, Jerry, Adam and all of the rest finish playing their games," he continued, referring to Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who chair the House's Judiciary and Intelligence committees, respectively.

George Conway: Pelosi is playing Trump 'like a drum' Lawyer George Conway once again took aim at President Trump.

Pelosi -- whose slow, exaggerated clap for Trump at his last State of the Union went viral -- said the president "took a pass" on collaborating with her party. And with a final flourish, he addressed Pelosi : "Nancy, thank you so much for your prayers , I know you truly mean it !"

Instead, Trump walked out on the two Democrats after Pelosi accused him of being “engaged in a Nancy Pelosi tries to prevent her Democratic colleagues from rushing to impeachment proceedings, it ’ s American People – and Nancy, thank you so much for your prayers , I know you truly mean it !

"Democrat leadership is tearing the United States apart, but I will continue to set records for the American People," he added.

Trump abruptly ended an infrastructure meeting at the White House after Pelosi accused him of a "cover-up" earlier Wednesday morning, pointing to his administration's handling of various congressional probes.

The president said he would not continue to work with Democrats until they stopped their investigations into his administration.

After ending the meeting, Trump appeared in the White House Rose Garden, where he urged Democrats to "get these phony investigations over with."

"I've said from the beginning that you probably can't go down two tracks," Trump said. "You can go down the investigation track or you can go down the investment track ... We're going to go down one track at a time," he said.

Nancy Pelosi accuses 'poor baby' Trump of 'impeachable offenses' after he storms out of White House meeting on infrastructure to say he will NOT work with Democrats until In his mini tweet-storm during the lunch hour, Trump wrote: 'Nancy, thank you so much for your prayers , I know you truly mean it !'

Schumer and Pelosi condemned the president's move.

"To watch what happened in the White House would make your jaw drop," Schumer told reporters. "We came here very seriously."

"I was prepared to give him a 35-page plan detailing this in all the areas I mentioned and more that had the broad support of Senate and House Democrats," Schumer added.

Pelosi told reporters after blasting Trump's behavior: "In any event, I pray for the president of the United States and I pray for the United States of America."

The Democratic leader has previously said that she has prayed for Trump. Recounting her first meeting with him after he took office, Pelosi said he was "insecure" about election vote totals.

"I prayed for him," she said in 2017. "But more importantly, I prayed for the United States of America."
