Schumer, Pelosi cancel meeting with Trump as shutdown showdown begins

The top two Democrats in Congress canceled a meeting with President Trump slated for later Tuesday, saying they didn’t see him as a viable partner in trying to strike an end-of-year spending deal.

The stunning move attempts to further sideline Mr. Trump and portray him as at odds with his party’s own leadership in Congress.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced their decision to skip the meeting hours after Mr. Trump said he doubted they could reach a deal on an end-of-year spending bill.

Instead, the two Democrats said they would try to schedule a meeting with their counterparts, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, to try to strike a deal with them independent of Mr. Trump.

    Did they forget that ANY deal they come up with CAN BE VETOED by President Trump?

    FINALLY A PRESIDENT WITH “CAJONES” who will not allow these 2 puppets from the previous administration(s) hoop and holler until they get their way. One of the big items for them is how to increase the ILLEGAL INVADERS to ensure more votes. I agree with the president, build the wall and deport all ILLEGAL INVADERS. As it is ongoing, put sanctions on the countries that will not take their “citizens” back.

    I don’t care if the government shuts down. I want to see the government reduced to a fraction of the monstrosity that it is now

    P&S have made their position very clear. POTUS is correct, no deal would be reached. These bugs are looking for a shutdown of Gov. In the past the Republicans always cave. This time I would like them to fight back. We will see.

    Since Sid and Nancy can’t work with the President, they’ll take their ball and go home. Could you imagine if the “leadership” had done this under Obama? How quickly would the press be on their backs? So, rather than try to negotiate, Sid and Nancy are just going to sit at home and pout. How very professional of them.

      Since Trump said it was a waste of time, why would they waste their time meeting with him. For some one who claims to be the great deal maker Trump sure failed this time to even get the parties to the table. Maybe he should read the book “The Art of the Deal”.

        Heey dumb ass, Trump doesn’t need advice from a looser democrat ass hole like you. Keep criticizing and making yourself known as the ass hole you are. Go phuck yourself you ass hole.

        He also said the Russian investigation was a waste of time, yet the Democrats are pushing that (with massively tainted evidence as their basis for the witch hunt). I bet you are all for that one. Had the GOP “leadership” blown off a meeting with Obama, how quickly would you wank about that? Would you scream about the impropriety of their snub, or would you bring out the tried and true complaint of the left: Racism?
