Trump said he was preparing to meet with "Chuck and Nancy" but didn't "see a deal" to keep the government open due to their weak stances on crime, immigration and taxes. "I don't see a deal!"

The Democratic leaders said they asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to meet in lieu of their meeting with the president. Poor Ryan and McConnell relegated to props. Sad!

Democrats also want to push Republicans to approve a bipartisan measure reinstating cost-sharing subsidies for insurers that help low-income Americans afford health insurance. He has given Congress until March to enact a permanent fix or risk mass deportations. Trump tweeted this morning.

What explains Trump's decision to provoke Pelosi and Schumer in advance of the meeting? But Democrats want something else in exchange for their votes: boosting spending for the military and domestic priorities equally.

The White House canceled its scheduled press briefing Tuesday and instead President Donald Trump is expected to give remarks from the Roosevelt Room. Hurricane aid weighs in the balance and Democrats are pressing for legislative protections for immigrants known as "Dreamers", even as conservative Republicans object to including the issue in the crush of year-end business.

Minutes ago Pelosi and Schumer released another joint statement, basically saying, "we're outta here".

Trump in September reversed an executive order by former President Barack Obama that gave protections to these immigrants, many of whom have little or no connection to their home country. About two hours later, Democratic leaders said that meeting wasn't worth it.

Additionally, Republicans and Democrats are negotiating changes to government spending limits, which must be dealt with before addressing next year's spending figures.

In the weeks leading up to Trump's last meeting with the top four congressional leaders in September, his frustration with his own party's top officials was boiling over.

He added, "But as long as he remains a destructive force, it would be a waste of everyone's time to continue working with someone who clearly has no interest in coming to an agreement". Other potential Democratic presidential contenders, including Sens. I'd also take a bet that Trump doesn't know that Pocahontas was an actual person.

Lawmakers will soon confront the Dec. 8 government funding deadline, which could result in the passage of a stopgap funding measure - keeping the government open at current funding levels - a catch-all spending bill or a partial government shutdown. We don't have games to play.

Schumer said, "As I said, there are serious issues in front of us. It's very apt to backfire".

An aide to Johnson said that despite frantic efforts to appease the Wisconsin senator, he couldn't yet commit to vote yes.

"Congress should pass single-subject legislation, which maximizes the transparency of our votes to constituents". Indeed, a recent Washington Post article highlighted a growing movement on the far right to de-emphasize higher education as a policy priority and reduce government spending on public universities.
