Trump Tears Into Pelosi and Schumer for Meeting-Skipping Stunt

How this exacerbates the potential for shutdown: The tweet seemed entirely directed at Trump's base. Trump appears to believe the plane is invisible to the naked eye.

Schumer later said Democrats would meet with Trump "any time, anywhere, any place", so long as he was serious about a deal.

But Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., a lead negotiator for Democrats, complained this week that Republicans have backed off their initial pledge to broker a compromise. In fact, the White House went out of its way to highlight the Democrats' absence with those two empty chairs flanking the president. We want low taxes. But GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida joined Democrats in saying he won't vote for the spending bill unless the immigrant issue is resolved. They are impenetrable to logic, narrative, or common sense.

Then President Trump expressed his hope that North Korea's action would prompt Democrat leadership to put the military first in budget discussions, despite the fact that both Schumer and Pelosi voted in favor of a bill authorizing approximately $700 billion in military spending next year.

The Democratic leaders said they "don't have any time to waste". You want to negotiate with us?

Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are longing for the good old days.

The thing about smart people is that they would never make these kinds of statements.

Pelosi and Schumer responded with a joint statement bowing out of the meeting.

The Democratic leaders were accused of "putting government operations, particularly resources for our men and women on the battlefield, at great risk by pulling these antics" by the Republican leaders. That's because individual tax cuts under the plan would expire in 2025, though corporate tax cuts are permanent, as are changes in the estate tax and elimination of the alternative minimum tax, which benefit only the very rich. But the majority leader's claim is not entirely accurate. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) pivoted: "I assume as responsible adults that we're all responsible for our own behavior", he said. 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. But if Democrats were hoping that would be enough to get Republicans on their side here, they were very mistaken. It has nothing to do with DACA. The president was joined by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. With no major legislative achievement, Trump is pushing hard for the GOP to deliver a tax cut bill to him by the end of the year.

WASHINGTON The Trump administration's approach to governance is that of a bratty toddler confronting a neat stack of blocks: Knock it down and scatter the pieces.

I pray for Congressman Conyers and his family and wish them well. Will they vote for a spending bill they don't like?

But the more Trump talked to advisers, read polls and watched developments on Capitol Hill, the more he became frustrated that he was "looking like the chump in the deal", according to one person who spoke to him about the issue, who along with others insisted on anonymity to speak candidly. But the U.S. stock market's benchmark Standard & Poor's 500 index continued to rise as investors placed greater emphasis on remarks made by Federal Reserve Chairman nominee Jerome Powell which analysts interpreted as favorable to bank stocks. "If it happens, it will be over illegals pouring into the country, crime pouring into the country, no border wall, which everyone wants".

While we made tremendous progress in alleviating the regulatory burden on the American economy, we have work to do in reforming how the federal government utilizes your tax dollars.
