Hakeem Jeffries rips 'studio gangster' Trump

House Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) on Sunday blasted President Trump as a "studio gangster" over his recent behavior.

In an interview on "Meet the Press," Jeffries said that Trump is acting like a "tough guy," and pointed to his decision last week to walk out of an infrastructure meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after she said she believed the president engaged in a "cover-up."

"You know, the president didn't just walk out on a meeting with Nancy Pelosi and infrastructure," Jeffries said. "He walked out on the American people."

"Donald Trump is functionally a studio gangster. He pretends to be a tough guy but he really is just playing that role on TV," Jeffries added. "Hopefully he will have gotten this temper tantrum out of his system."
