He also insisted that conservatives shouldn't be skeptical of his attempt at bipartisan deal-making.

President Donald Trump will host Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and his House counterpart Nancy Pelosi at the White House Wednesday evening for dinner.

The three Democratic senators who attended were Joseph Manchin, of West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp, of North Dakota, and Joe Donnelly, of Indiana. "I'm looking forward to talking to President Trump again about my ideas and ways we can work together on this issue".

"I'm hopeful but there's no white smoke or there's nothing done but we'll see where this leads in the coming 48 hours", Malloy said.

Trump made the same case during a cabinet meeting at Camp David on Saturday held just as Irma was bearing down on Florida.

If that's true - and it may be only slightly hyperbolic - then Schumer would do well to see what he can get done with all that power while the reins are in his hands. He said he was "incredibly hopeful" a tax plan can be enacted this year, adding it could be retroactive to January.

Trump urged Democrats to support the legislation. You know, this is going to help with cybersecurity within the government. "I will not make you pay for something I want, to make myself look good".

Meanwhile, Manchin said he does not believe that the Democratic Party is moving too far left, as some watchers believe. We're looking at the middle class and we're looking for jobs, ' Trump said.
