President Donald Trump took aim at senior Democrats during a surprise White House press conference on Wednesday, in which he called for an end to the Dems' "phony investigations."

The Rose Garden presser came shortly after a White House meeting on infrastructure with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other establishment Democrats, was cut short by President Trump.

Trump blasted Pelosi and Schumer for investigating him, saying he won’t work with them on legislative issues "under these circumstances."

The president also singled out House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who he described as "an enemy of mine for many years."

President Trump revealed the meeting was cut short because he was upset with Speaker Pelosi’s allegation that he was involved in a “cover-up” in relation to the Mueller investigation into alleged Russian collusion.

“I came here for a meeting with Democrats, not thinking that they wanted to do infrastructure or anything else other than investigate,” Trump opened his remarks.

“Nancy Pelosi, just before our meeting, made a statement that we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”

“I just wanted to let you know that I walked into the room and told Sen. Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, ‘I want to do infrastructure, I want to do it more than you want to do it. I would 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 phony investigations over with,'” Trump continued.

Trump presented his message with a sign on his lectern that contained several facts about the Mueller investigation, including the price tag and the number of witnesses interviewed, with the message “No Collusion, No Obstruction.”

The White House also passed out handouts that contained stats such as, “nearly 500 search warrants” and “more than 2,500 subpoenas.”

The meeting was meant to be the second on infrastructure after Trump and the Democrats reached a tentative $2 trillion deal last month.

Just hours before the meeting was set to take place, the Democrats held their own meeting on potentially impeaching Trump.

Pelosi emerged from the meeting and told reporters, “We believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States …

"We believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”

The Democrats have ramped up their investigations into the president and his administration in recent weeks, issuing subpoenas for testimony from his son, Donald Trump Jr., former White House counsel Don McGahn, former Communications Director Hope Hicks, and other high-profile officials.
