WASHINGTON, D.C.– President Donald Trump says Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi have been “all talk” and “no action.”
Congress’ top Democratic leaders abruptly pulled out of a planned meeting with Trump and Republican leaders at the White House on Tuesday after Trump attacked them on Twitter.
Trump said as he meets with Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that Schumer and Pelosi are weak on crime and combating illegal immigration and want to increase taxes.
Ryan says it’s “regrettable” the Democratic leaders didn’t show up. McConnell says he can’t recall turning down an opportunity to visit White House.
