WATCH: Sarah Sanders explains that you can’t go down two tracks
On Wednesday, President Trump effectively ended a bipartisan meeting that was supposed to center around infrastructure after Pelosi said– before the meeting– that Trump was involved in a “cover-up.”
“We do believe that it’s 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 engaged in a cover up,” she said after emerging from a meeting with other Democrats.

Trump wasn’t having it and addressed it immediately with Schumer and Pelosi, effectively ending the meeting there.
“Instead of walking in happily into a meeting, I walk in to look at people that have just said that I was doing a cover up. I don’t do cover-ups,” Trump said in the Rose Garden after the fact.
Alysin Camerota asked Sarah Sanders about this, and she didn’t hold back.
“It’s real simple — you can’t go down two tracks. We’re either gonna have to agree that we want to solve problems for the country … or we can fight,” Sanders said.

Exactly. If Pelosi actually thinks she can drop alarming accusations toward Trump and go into a meeting with him immediately after and pretend everything’s fine, she has another thing coming.
