Chuck and Nancy cancel meeting with Trump


They refuse to meet with him just for show. Good for them!

Pelosi, Schumer pull out of White House meeting over spending

By Ed O'Keefe and Sean Sullivan November 28 at 11:54 AM

Congressional Democrats have backed out of a scheduled meeting with President Trump, saying they will focus instead on negotiating directly with top Republican leaders to avoid a federal shutdown.

The decision by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) to back out of a meeting with Trump came a few hours after he signaled in an early-morning tweet Tuesday that he is unlikely to bend to requests by Democrats in talks over how much more money the federal government may spend in the coming years and on pressing concerns regarding immigration and health care.

“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!” Trump tweeted.

In response, Schumer and Pelosi said that “rather than going to the White House for a show meeting that won’t result in an agreement,” they’ve asked to meet alone with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.).

“If the president, who already said earlier this year that ‘our country needs a good shutdown,’ isn’t interested in addressing the difficult year-end agenda, we’ll work with those Republicans who are, as we did in April. We look forward to continuing to work in good faith, as we have been for the last month, with our Republican colleagues in Congress to do just that.”

Trump’s huddle with the “big four” was scheduled to start a few hours after he is scheduled to attend a Senate Republican lunch meeting at the U.S. Capitol to shore up support for his party’s tax reform plans.

With government funding scheduled to dry up Dec. 8, both sides have floated the possibility of passing a short-term plan that would push negotiations until just before Christmas.

Re: Chuck and Nancy cancel meeting with Trump


In our current environment od almost equally divided government, The five most powerful positions in US government are the President, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the senate Majority Leader, the Senatie Minority Leader, and the House inority Leadet. It is a sad state of affairs that the most competent individual of the five is Paul Ryan - a man from another century who needs to be locked up in a think tank. But he at least is civil, snd understands how government should work. If only he were not genuflecting at an Ayn Rand icon. P

How civil were these a-holes when Obama was President? How many times did he ask to meet to hammer out details only to be put off and ignored; sometime not even calling him back for hours? I won't listen to any bellyaching by Republicans after they treated the 1st Black President like some ne're-do-well who wasn't entitled to sit in his chair! Fk them and all their bigoted ancestors! These people questioned his citizenship, religion, and patriotism! They can all go to HELL as far as I'm concerned! emoticon emoticon

Fiero, you sound as though you believe i am praising the Zrepublicans. When in fact, i was bemoaning the clurrent lack of effective leadership. Among bothe thr Republicans and the Democrats. There is a reason why i have votedfor Gary Johnson in thr last two presidential elections.

Chuck and Nancy offered to meet with serious people about this. The serious people decided instead to meet with the unserious person instead. Chuck and Nancy have backbone. McConnell and Ryan don't. (But we already knew that.)

Yep; great photo op sitting there with empty chairs! McConnell didn't flinch lying about "I can't remember doing anything like this to a president!" Of course we all know he's FOS and on election night once, wouldn't even bother to talk to Obama on the phone who only wanted to congratulate him! He's a classless POS along with Ryan who's not much better! emoticon emoticon
