Nancy Pelosi and Ivanka Trump were both honored at a gala in Washington, DC, Wednesday night, a few hours after the house speaker mocked the father of the first daughter because he threw a tantrum and stormed a meeting.
Both Pelosi and Ivanka have received awards at the internet association's sixth annual charity gala for advocacy for STEM education and opportunities.
Ivanka, who is Trump's advisor, put on a mint green dress when she accepted the association's Internet Freedom Award for her dedicated efforts to extend educational opportunities in computer science to all Americans.
Meanwhile, Pelosi kept it stylish in a plum dress, while being honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award & # 39; for her continued leadership in STEM education for the next generation of American tech leaders & # 39 ;.
Shortly after Pelosi received her award, Trump shot a tweet: & # 39; In a letter to her home colleague & # 39; s, Nancy Pelosi said: & # 39; President Trump had a tantrum for all of us to see. & # 39; This is not true. I was deliberately very polite and calm, just as I was with the press in the rose garden a few minutes later. & # 39;
& # 39; Can be easily proven. It's all so & # 39; n lie! & # 39; he added.

Ivanka Trump, president's advisor, put on a mint green dress when she accepted the association's Internet Freedom Award for her dedicated efforts to expand educational opportunities for computer science to all Americans.
Meanwhile, landlord Nancy Pelosi kept it stylish in a plum dress, while being honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award & # 39; for her continued leadership in STEM education for the next generation of American tech leaders & # 39;
Shortly after Pelosi received her award, Trump shot a tweet: & # 39; In a letter to her home colleague & # 39; s, Nancy Pelosi said: & # 39; President Trump had a tantrum for all of us to see. & # 39; This is not true & # 39;
Trump referred to an incident that occurred earlier on Wednesday, when Pelosi escalated a word fight with the president by accusing him of committing & # 39; accusable offenses & # 39; and fire him storming from a morning White House infrastructure within three minutes as an & # 39; poor baby & # 39; moment.
Pelosi mocked his behavior on a day full of drama like & # 39; very strange & # 39 ;, shortly after Trump blew up a meeting with Democratic leadership to discuss how $ 2 trillion in infrastructure investments could be funded by criticizing her and Chuck Schumer and then hold a Rose Garden press conference. attack them more.
The confrontation in the Cabinet Room came up with what should be a summit with Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and other top democrats.
But Pelosi had accused him just over an hour earlier of chairing a & # 39; cover-up & # 39; after he had a discussion with her caucus, some of whom are pushing aggressively to accuse the president – causing him to go home, according to a White House official.
Instead of talking about spending, Trump walked into the room, denounced the Democrats, and walked to the Rose Garden to talk to reporters who had been moved in front of it before Schumer and Pelosi sat in the closet space.
& # 39; I do not cover ups, & # 39; Trump said to the reporters, speaking in front of a stage with the inscription & # 39; no stealth, no obstruction & # 39 ;.
& # 39; You people probably know that better than anyone & # 39 ;, he added. He said it would not work with Pelosi or Schumer, the leader of the Senate Minorality, until they dropped out of the investigations.
Trump spoke to reporters in the Rose Garden on Wednesday after breaking off a planned meeting with Chios Schumer, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader; he said he would not cooperate with them as long as they pursue a carefully crafted plan to investigate and accuse him
Ready for the fight: Trump walked to the stage for his improvised press conference with pages with notes, some of which were written by hand
Even before Pelosi and Schumer had arrived from Capitol Hill, White House journalists were invited to stand in front of the stage, decorated with criticism of Mueller's Trump probe.
& # 39; If they get everything done, I will be ready – let's go get infrastructure, let's lower the prices of medicines. In the meantime, we are doing an excellent job without them, & said Trump.
Pelosi and Schumer hurried back to Capitol Hill and held their own joint press conference, during which Pelosi said: & I pray for the President of the United States. & # 39;
An hour later she raised the ante and accused him of committing & # 39; accusing offenses & # 39 ;.
Pelosi described the meeting as & # 39; very, very, very strange & # 39 ;.
& # 39; He walked away. Whether he intended to act on what he said before remains to be seen, & she said in the CAPS ideas conference.
She also said that Trump & # 39; in an orchestrated – almost poor baby position & # 39; entered the room and said that I was working on a cover and impossible to have a conversation about infrastructure while we were investigating it & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Now we have investigated him because we have taken over the majority, so there is nothing new in it. And then he had a press conference in the Rose Garden with all these kinds of visuals that were clearly planned before I said he was currently working on a cover-up. So it's really sad, & she added.
Pelosi told reporters that she is praying for Trump and was surprised at how the president ended the planned sit-down
Schumer claimed that the president's storm was a deployment and he never intended to negotiate infrastructure spending in the first place
The confrontation and effective declaration by Trump of a total war came one morning that was opened with liberal democrats putting pressure on Pelosi to consider initiating a formal removal procedure.
Some progressives believe that deposition is the only mechanism capable of shorting the White House's refusal to obey House summons for documents and testimonies.
Progressive lawmakers used an early morning meeting of the Democratic party to convey their message to the Speaker – who confronted them and refused to continue with deposition.
Then, in a press conference following the caucus meeting, Pelosi fired the first salvo of the day by accusing Trump of a & # 39; cover-up & # 39 ;, fueled by his refusal to support former White House attorney Don McGahn and current attorney -General to have Bob Barr testify at Democrat hearings.
& # 39; We really believe it is important to follow the facts. We believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States. And we believe the president of the United States is covering up, & she told reporters at the Capitol.
An assistant assistant from the White House said that Trump was covering up as soon as he saw it.
He may have been convicted by the summons of a parliamentary committee for testimonies and documents from his former communications director.
Trump has yet to comment on the House Judiciary Committee's attempt to enforce a testimony from Hope Hicks, a former assistant, who is now the executive vice president and chief communications officer for Fox.
Hicks did not address the summons and he is not expected to testify again.
The White House claimed this week that Trump has the power to protect current and former senior officials from forced testimony to Congress, and he argued Wednesday that the hour-long questions his assistants had endured in previous sessions of legislators and Mueller more than were enough.
But instead of canceling the meeting, he had the two best Democrats and other leaders come to the cabinet and asked the officials to organize a stage and for the White House reporters in the rose garden.
When the Democrats arrived at the White House, the president came in and denounced them.
Then he ran away three minutes later and said almost the same thing to reporters he had said to the democratic leaders and senior assistants.
Trump told the press that he had started his meeting with Pelosi and Schumer saying he wanted a deal to finance the renovation and replacement of infrastructure such as roads, tunnels, bridges and airports.
& # 39; But you know what? & # 39; he said he had told them. & # 39; You cannot do it under these circumstances. So have these fake tests done. & # 39;
He says he said to them: & # 39; It's sad. This meeting was set up a few days ago at 11 am. Suddenly I hear last night that they have a meeting, just before this meeting, to talk about & # 39; The I-word & # 39 ;, he said, referring to an allegation of allegations that he was preventing justice. & # 39;
Trump tweeted a mouthful after the White House blowup, ending with a puncture in Nancy Pelosi for devout saying she would pray for him
Democrats in Congress each depend on Pelosi's word to try to distinguish whether she is on board for a Trump deposition
Special Counsel Robert Mueller rejected the Democrats' assertion that his campaign coincided with Russians in 2016, but left it to Trump & # 39; s own Justice Department to determine if he would be charged with obstruction because he was reportedly the Russian probe tried to obstruct.
& # 39; The I word! Could you imagine? "I don't speak to Russians about campaigns," said Trump. & # 39; When I went to Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania, I don't say, "Let's call Russia." … it's a hoax. The biggest hoax in history. & # 39;
Shortly after Trump finished his words, Pelosi and Schumer refuted him on Capitol Hill.
& # 39; He wasn't really respectful. He took a pass and it just makes me wonder why he did that, & Pelosi told reporters. & # 39; In any case, I pray for the President of the United States and I pray for the United States of America. & # 39;
& # 39; He entered the room and made the statement he had made – well, I won't even characterize it & she said.
Schumer accused Trump of orchestrating the whole spectacle in advance.
& # 39; It is clear that this was not a spontaneous move on the part of the President, & # 39; Schumer claimed. & # 39; It was planned.
& # 39; Watching what happened in the White House would make your mouth fall.
& # 39; When we were in the room, the curtains were closed, the president – there was a place for him at the front, so he could stand up and try to tell us why he wouldn't build infrastructure.
& # 39; And of course he went to the rose garden with prepared characters printed long before our meeting. & # 39;
The senior White House official who spoke with DailyMail.com said the sign had been printed a month earlier – and Trump had used the image that appeared on the stage in a tweet.
In a bizarre sub-plot, Kellyanne Conway was reportedly involved in a confrontation with Pelosi after Trump was stormed.
After Conway turned to Pelosi and asked if she had a response for the president, and the house speaker asked to say, "I respond to the president, not the staff."
When the Cabinet Room was empty, a source told the Wall Street Journal that Conway had said to Pelosi: & that is really a pro-woman of yours. & # 39;
A source confirmed DailyMail.com that Trump was the only one who spoke – before leaving the meeting.
While Trump complained about Democrats in the Rose Garden, finance minister Steve Mnuchin was spotted outside the West Wing, talking to high presidential adviser Ivanka, suggesting she was also in the room at the time of her father's outburst.
The White House press, Sarah Sanders and Conway, were also near the entrance that connects the cabinet room with the rose garden through a short corridor.
Pelosi picked up her allegations of a presidential cover-up just after 1 p.m. and opened the door for deposition as liberal members of her caucus to continue to urge her publicly in that direction.
& # 39; The fact is – in full view, in the public domain – that this president is blocking the law and he is covering up, & # 39; she said during a conference held by the Center for American Progress.
& # 39; And that could be an insulting violation. & # 39;
In his mini tweet storm during the lunch break, Trump wrote: & # 39; Nancy, thank you so much for your prayers, I know you really mean it! & # 39;
White House reporters were called in with just a few minutes to hear Trump speak and answer two questions.
By that time, the presidential stage had already been set up with a placard that said the Mueller probe & # 39; NO collusion & # 39; and & # 39; NO obstruction & # 39; found, suggesting that the public comments were not fully improvised.
The president sniffed about the attack plan of the Democrats, re-starting investigations that he thought the Mueller probe was the last word
Trump was on a Rose Garden stage that already had a & # 39; NO Collusion, NO Obstruction & # 39; placard, suggesting that the hastily called press event was not entirely improvised
While Trump complained about Democrats in the Rose Garden, finance minister Steve Mnuchin was spotted outside the West Wing, in conversation with senior adviser Ivanka, suggesting that she was also in the room at the time of her father's outburst.
Trump quoted from an editorial in the Wall Street Journal calling on Democrats to continue their investigation.
& # 39; There was no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign & # 39 ;, he said. & # 39; That's it. But they want to make this a big problem. Or she the big & # 39; I word & # 39; wear it or not. & # 39;
& # 39; There is a danger here, & # 39; he claimed. & # 39; If one day a democrat becomes president and you have a republican house, they can blame him for whatever reason. Any reason whatsoever. We cannot allow that. & # 39;
The clash between Trump and Congress Democrats is only the latest news in a series of frontal clashes since the Democrats took over the House of Representatives in January.
& # 39; I respect the courts. I respect Congress. I respect here exactly where we are, & he said Wednesday, referring to the White House.
& # 39; But what they did is abuse. This is research number four about the same, probably five, and it really started, I think, almost from the moment we walked down the escalator in Trump Tower. & # 39;
& # 39; We do a lot without them, & # 39; Trump added. & # 39; Let them play their games. We go one track at a time. & # 39;
A senior assistant repeated Trump & # 39; s comment on one issue and told DailyMail.com that Trump would consider working with democrats on legislative priorities, while investigations continued.
& # 39; I think we should see & # 39 ;, said the person, noting that they are literally accusing & # 39; the president of a crime & # 39; and then claim that they want to work on infrastructure. & # 39; Give me a break. & # 39;
Pelosi took a farewell shot at the president when her own hastily planned press conference ended and speculated why he had decided to storm out of their meeting.
& # 39; Perhaps the lack of confidence on his part was that he really couldn't match the greatness of the challenge we have, & # 39; she said.
The all-out confrontation with Trump will actually help Pelosi, who is fighting the progressive wing of her caucus that Trump wants to accuse.
Her comparison of Trump's behavior with Nixon is the furthest she has discovered so far about the progress of the accusations against Trump – a tactic of which she is concerned will affect Democrats in the 2020 elections.
Pelosi also argued that the probes that run six house commissions to the Trump companies, his taxes, his 2016 campaign and his administration come under the skin of the president.
Our studies are & # 39; reaping the benefits & # 39 ;, she said.
Her remarks came after she had said earlier in the day that she would not go ahead with a charge against the president, under pressure from some in her party to do exactly that.
Pelosi organized a meeting in the Capitol on Wednesday with house departments with house democrats to try to penetrate lawmakers who want to see how the charges against Trump begin.
Her tactics seemed to work – for the time being. First-year Herpir Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who was one of the beating drum beats, sounded a more muted tone after the meeting.
& # 39; I was satisfied with the openness of the conversation & # 39 ;, she told NBC News. & # 39; I think we have thoughtful conversations about this and that is the most important thing. & # 39;
Pelosi had the six committee chairmen lead investigations against Trump and claim that the Democrats are investigating the president and do not need to go further than the deposition to continue to do so.
She described it as a & # 39; respectful & # 39; meeting and said the meeting was not about convincing lawmakers to change their opinion on
& # 39; It's not a matter of conviction, we just exchanged information and views, & # 39; she said.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler discussed the mood of his panel to hold AG Barr in contempt for not handing over Mueller's full, non-aborted report.
He urged the entire House to vote against contempt for the Barr Congress this month.

He also said that Mueller should testify in public, according to a democratic source in the room. The Judicial Panel and the Ministry of Justice are negotiating Mueller's testimony and reports indicate that the Special Council would prefer to speak behind closed doors.
The impeachment discussion between democrats warmed up in the aftermath of the former White House gives rise to McGahn's refusal to follow a summons for his testimony on the Russian investigation and his testimony in the report at the White House's request. from Mueller.
His refusal to appear on Tuesday caused a wave of anger among the Democrats.
Democratic lawmakers said afterwards that Pelosi was able to curb the appeal of some members for the head of Trump.
& # 39; Nancy still has the upper hand if it convinces our caucus to keep your powder dry, & # 39; said Rep. Gerry Connolly afterwards of the accusation of the accusation, even though he admitted that no legislator insisting on impeachment changed his mind.
& # 39; The vast majority of the Democratic Caucasus continues to believe that the speaker has set the right course that is deliberate yet powerful &, said Rep Hakeem Jeffries, President of the Democratic Caucasus.
& # 39; There is a growing number of members who publicly expressed a desire to go to a sediment survey, but as far as I know, the number is between 20 and 25, & # 39; he added.
However, some legislators warned that continued extinction by the president would again generate impeachment talk.
& # 39; I think we see the drum beat moving in that direction, the more it defies us, & # 39; said Democratic Rep. Katie Hill. & # 39; But I don't think the process is as a whole, there is. & # 39;
Pelosi was a leader of the House in the 1990s when the Republicans tried to accuse the then President Bill Clinton – only to lose control of the lower room at the next election.
