SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "I've said from the beginning, right from the beginning that you probably can't go down two tracks. You can go down the investigation track and you can go down the investment track or the track of let's get things done for the American people. I love the American people.
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "So I just wanted to let you know that I walked into the room and I told Senator [Chuck] Schumer, Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi, I want to do infrastructure, I want to do it more than you want to do it. I'd be really good at that. That's what I do. But you know what you can't do it under these circumstances. So get these phoney investigations over with."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "But they want to make this a big deal, whether or not they carry the big 'I' word out. I can't imagine that but they probably would because they do, whatever they have to do. I'll tell you there's a danger here. If someday a Democrat becomes President and you have a Republican House, they could impeach him for any reason or her. Any reason. We can't allow that to happen. We can't allow it to happen."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "When they get everything done I'm all set to let's get infrastructure, let's get drug prices down. In the meantime we're doing tremendous work without them, we're doing tremendous executive orders. A lot of work. We've had a great success. Most successful economy perhaps in our country's history."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "Because this meeting was set up, a number of days ago at 11 o'clock, all of a sudden I hear last night they're going to have a meeting right before this meeting, to talk about the 'I' word, the 'I' word. Can you imagine? I don't speak to Russians about campaigns. When I went to Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania, I don't say oh let's call Russia. Maybe they can, it's a hoax, the greatest hoax in history."
SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "I respect the courts. I respect Congress. I respect right here was where we're standing, but what they've done is abuse, this is investigation number four and the same thing, probably five. And it really started I think pretty much from the time we came down the escalator in Trump Tower. So I say to you that we're going to get everything done. We're doing a lot without them. Let them play their games. We're going to go down one track at a time. Let them finish up. And we'll be all set."
US President Donald Trump walked out of a meeting with Democratic leaders after they accused him of engaging in a "cover-up".
"Get these phoney investigations over with," the Republican president said in an unscheduled briefing from the White House's Rose Garden on Wednesday.
His remarks came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi met with Democrats to discuss impeaching the president. Trump is currently fighting congressional inquiries into his financial and business dealings.
Trump spoke only minutes after cutting short a meeting with Speak of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. The trio were discussion bipartisan co-operation over infrastructure spending.
