'Chuck and Nancy' ditch government shutdown meeting with Trump after Twitter attack

Trump doesn't know what's next after taxes

No deal was ever struck.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called it "disappointing that Senator Schumer and Leader Pelosi are refusing to come to the table and discuss urgent issues".

They said, "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".

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

"Meeting with "Chuck and Nancy" today about keeping government open and working". Congress has not lifted a finger to re-authoriize it. States are beginning to notify parents their children are about to lose coverage.




He blasted "Chuck and Nancy" in an early morning tweet the Democratic leaders cited.

It was hoped the White House meeting might lay a foundation to keep the government running and set a path for a year-end spending package to give both the Pentagon and domestic agencies relief from a budget freeze.

Congress has until December 8 to pass a spending bill to avert a government shutdown and Senate Republicans are expected to bring their tax bill to a vote this week. We look forward to continuing to work in good faith, as we have been for the last month, with our Republican colleagues in Congress to do just that. Democrats backed out of a planned meeting after Trump attacked them on Twitter.

President Donald Trump is predicting passage of the Senate tax plan as he accuses Democratic leaders of being "all talk" and "no action". POTUS then noted to reporters that reaching an agreement with Democrats would be hard because "nothing to them is important except raising taxes" and that Pelosi and Schumer enjoy seeing "crime pouring into the country" via our defenseless, wall-lacking southern border. "I don't see a deal!" If a new budget and spending plan is not passed by then, the government will shut down. 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. Additionally, since Republicans only hold 52 seats in the Senate, any bill they advance could be filibustered by Democrats.

Previewing the meeting on Monday, Schumer cited spending levels, immigration policy and the need to renew programs such as the Children's Health Insurance Program as top priorities in the closing days of the year.
