Trump meeting with Schumer, Pelosi back on after Twitter row

Trump meeting with Schumer, Pelosi back on after Twitter row

In a statement Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, said they would travel to the White House Thursday to meet with Trump and GOP Hill leaders to discuss the spate of year-end issues that need to be resolved.

The Oval Office sit-down will come after Pelosi of California and Schumer of NY pulled out of a planned meeting on November 28 after Trump tweeted, "I don't see a deal!"

Schumer and Pelosi said that in light of the tweet, a sit-down with the president and Republican leaders would amount to a "show meeting".

Once overall spending caps are agreed upon, the congressional appropriations committees will spend weeks working out hundreds of line items and policy provisions for a final $1 trillion spending bill to be brought to a vote in January.

Trump held the meeting anyway, sitting between two empty chairs with placards containing Pelosi's and Schumer's names.

Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Sen.

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, a day before funding for the federal government is due to run out.

It will take bi-partisan support of 60 votes for spending bills to pass in Senate, where Republicans have 52 members.

House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky will also attend the negotiating session and had urged their Democratic counterparts to reschedule it.

Schumer and Pelosi said there's lots to figure out, from military funding to immigration issues.

The Republican bill will provide some short-term help for states that are running out of money to finance a health insurance program for lower-income children, Republican aides said.

On Monday, Democratic leaders in Congress accepted an invitation to meet US President Donald Trump and Republicans for talks to avert a government shutdown this week, even as the Democrats pressed demands on funding priorities and protecting young immigrants.
