With a government shutdown looming as even more probable after an angry Oval Office throw down, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she urged President Trump to pray over their latest offer.

Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer addressed reporters on the north lawn of the White House just minutes after their bipartisan meeting with Trump boiled over and Trump even took ownership of a potential shutdown.

Pelosi and Schumer urged Trump to accept an offer of moving six spending bills but funding homeland security under current limits to avoid a blow-up over Trump’s border wall.

‘He says ‘We can pass it in the House, right now,’ said Pelosi. He doesn’t have the votes in the House, to pass whatever his agenda is with that wall in it,’ she said.

‘We are telling him, we will keep the government open, with a proposal that Mr. Schumer suggested. Why doesn’t he just think about it? In fact, I asked him to pray over it,’ Pelosi, a Catholic, told reporters.

Pelosi then said that she hoped that message would guide all parties as they negotiated keeping the government open.

‘It had everything to do with [letting] us be prayerful, listen to each other and have an understanding of where people are coming from,’ she said.

She tried to put the president in a prayerful mood by opening up their meeting with a biblical story.

‘I myself though we should open the meeting with a prayer, which I did,’ she told reporters at the Capitol later.

‘I told him about King Solomon, when he was to become king of the Jews, he prayed to God, he said, ‘How can I ever follow King David?” she said. ‘King David, king of the Jews.’

‘I need you to give me great understanding and wisdom, Lord,’ she recounted. ‘And after he prayed and prayed and prayed, God came to him and said, ‘Solomon, because you did not ask for longevity, great wealth, or vengeance against your enemies, I will give you more wisdom than anyone has ever had.”
