Top Democrats Interested In Bipartisan Meeting Without Trump

Trump doesn't know what's next after taxes

Donald Trump

On Twitter just hours before the scheduled meeting at the White House, Trump also accused Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of NY and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California of being soft on crime, taxes and illegal immigration.

Trump told reporters he was "not that surprised" that California's Pelosi and New York's Schumer didn't come to White House discussions on a spending deal and immigration.

"Given that the president doesn't see a deal between Democrats and the White House, we believe the best path forward is to continue negotiating with our Republican counterparts in Congress instead", Schumer, D-N.Y., and Pelosi said in a statement.

Congress's current budget agreement funds the government only through December 8.

President Donald Trump is predicting passage of the Senate tax plan as he accuses Democratic leaders of being "all talk" and "no action". Lindsey Graham told reporters that Trump went out of his way to address concerns of another wavering senator, Maine's Susan Collins, saying he would back a deal on paying Obamacare subsidies and an expanded a property tax deduction under the tax reform measure in return for her vote.

But in his early morning Twitter attack, Trump upended the negotiations and signaled that he'll adopt a hard line.

President Trump wants everyone to know that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer didn't show up to the White House.

The White House didn't release an agenda for the meeting, but the upcoming budget deadline probably would've been up for discussion.

There's also the issue of keeping the federal government running, and something few have discussed: CHIP, the Children's Health Insurance Program expired two months ago.

Schumer and Pelosi skipped the meeting because they argued that it was pointless after Trump wrote in a tweet that they wanted to see high taxes, immigrants pouring into the country and were weak on crime. Republicans and Democrats are also at odds over defense spending levels.

The leverage that Democrats carry has GOP conservatives on edge and they have been reluctant to make early-stage concessions that might foul the mood of rank-and-file Republicans while the tax bill is in the balance.

Schumer and Pelosi then said they weren't going to come for a "show meeting".

Democrats have demanded that a funding deal include language to protect young undocumented immigrants known as "Dreamers" who are threatened with deportation next year because of Trump's decision to end an Obama-era program, reported the Hill.
