  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats and the White House are at a "tragic impasse" on coronavirus relief after a 25-minute phone call between the California Democrat and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. 
  • They spoke at length for the first time in weeks after aid talks collapsed earlier this month. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows failed to crack a stalemate over coronavirus relief Thursday when they spoke at length for the first time in weeks. 

After a 25-minute phone call between the pair, Pelosi issued a statement saying "this conversation made clear that the White House continues to disregard the needs of the American people as the coronavirus crisis devastates lives and livelihoods."

She said the sides stood at a "tragic impasse" after the Trump administration again did not meet her demand to roughly double the price of its aid proposal to $2.2 trillion. 

"Democrats are willing to resume negotiations once Republicans start to take this process seriously.  Lives, livelihoods and the life of our democracy are at stake," the California Democrat said in the statement.

A spokesman for Meadows did not immediately respond to a request to comment on the call.
