Democratic leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., backed out of a White House budget meeting with President Trump Tuesday due to a Trump tweet beforehand.
In his tweet, the president criticized liberal policies and expressed doubt that Republicans and Democrats could come to a deal.
Meeting with “Chuck and Nancy” today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!

In response, the Democratic leaders released a joint statement saying they will not work with President Trump, electing to negotiate with Republican leaders Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., instead.
