Rep. Dan Kildee (D-MI) was not impressed with the latest childish antics of President Donald Trump.


Appearing on MSNBC Wednesday afternoon, Kildee was asked by host Casey Hunt to react to "what the president has apparently said, that he does not want to do any business of state until these [congressional] investigations are wrapped up."

"Well, it's just ridiculous," said Kildee. "This is the return of Trump the man-baby, who is just so angry and just throwing a fit, and saying 'Unless you do things the way I want them done in the order that I want them done, I'm not going to meet the needs of the American people.' I mean, let's be clear: He's not punishing Congress by not working on infrastructure. He's punishing hard-working Americans who depend on infrastructure for their livelihood, who depend on infrastructure to be connected to the rest of the world. And what he said is that the American people don't deserve 21st-century infrastructure because he doesn't like the fact that Congress is investigating some of the aspects of his administration and doing the job that the Constitution requires us to do."

He added: "It's really pathetic."
