"I don't have temper tantrums. I really don't." - @realDonaldTrump responding to @SenSchumer's description of yesterday's walk-out.
I just asked the President about Manafort:

KARL: Did you know Paul Manafort was sharing polling data from your campaign with the Russians?

TRUMP: No. I didn’t know anything about that.
@JackKingston Push back all you want, Congressman. But I am a reporter, not a politician. It is not my job to say whether I would sign a bill.
When I asked the President if he would sign spending bills unrelated to the border wall, he repeatedly demanded to know if that is what I would do. It may be tempting to answer such a question, but that is not my job.
