Democrats have been crowing over their perceived victory over President Trump for weeks. However, Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that they were no longer planning to meet with the president. The deal that the trio had previously hashed out, the deal that prompted liberals to claim that Trump had capitulated to their demands, was over.
Democrats can’t survive unless they protect the Dreamers. Their goals are completely at odds with the White House. Pelosi and Schumer convinced Trump to meet with them explicitly to discuss options for strengthening the Dreamer’s legal position in the country.
Trump also planned to discuss tax reform. He realized, however, that it would be fruitless and blasted Pelosi and Schumer on Twitter. The two prominent Democrats immediately became salty.
“Rather than going to the White House for a show meeting that won’t result in an agreement, we’ve asked Leader McConnell and Speaker Ryan to meet this afternoon. We don’t have any time to waste in addressing the issues that confront us, so we’re going to continue to negotiate with Republican leaders who may be interested in reaching a bipartisan agreement,” they wrote in a joint statement.
Expecting Democrats to cooperate with Trump is a fantasy. Their party is built on trashing conservatives.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan wasted no time responding to the liberal attack.
“We have important work to do, and Democratic leaders have continually found new excuses not to meet with the administration to discuss these issues,” they said.
“Democrats are putting government operations, particularly resources for our men and women on the battlefield, at great risk by pulling these antics. There is a meeting at the White House this afternoon, and if Democrats want to reach an agreement, they will be there.”
