Schumer, Pelosi Cancel Shutdown Negotiations with Trump After 'Blatantly Inaccurate' Tweet

Schumer, Pelosi Cancel Shutdown Negotiations with Trump After 'Blatantly Inaccurate' Tweet

"We have important work to do, and Democratic leaders have continually found new excuses not to meet with the administration to discuss these issues", the statement said.

No deal was ever struck.

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.

Pelosi and Schumer were supposed to join their Republican counterparts, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, over 100 DACA participants are losing their protections every day.

"I think the Democratic leaders in the House and Senate need to understand the way the government works".

Mr. Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning: "Meeting with "Chuck and Nancy" today about keeping government open and working".

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

Congress's current budget agreement funds the government only through December 8. Given that House Republicans have needed Democrats to help pass spending bills in recent years amid opposition from fiscal conservatives and because Senate Democrats can filibuster spending legislation, Schumer and Pelosi believe they have leverage to force a deal.

"Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes", Trump said. "There is a meeting at the White House this afternoon, and if Democrats want to reach an agreement, they will be there".

White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said Monday that the West Wing is "anxious to find a path forward on budget caps" that would pave the way for a long-term government spending bill. "I don't see a deal!"

President Donald Trump is predicting passage of the Senate tax plan as he accuses Democratic leaders of being "all talk" and "no action". And if not, what will Republicans do to seek to avert a shutdown? Republicans and Democrats are also at odds over defense spending levels.

Congress also needs to agree on reauthorizing the Children's Health Insurance Program, which some states say is already running low on cash.

Schumer and Pelosi then said they weren't going to come for a "show meeting". Shortly afterward, he told Pelosi and Schumer he would sign legislation protecting those immigrants, provided Democrats made concessions of their own on border security.
