Trump to dine with Democrats

Written by  CBS News

President Trump will dine with six key senators — three Democrats and three Republicans — at the White House Tuesday night, as his administration endeavors to overhaul the nation's tax code.

Sen.

Joe Donnelly, D-Indiana; Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-North Dakota; Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia; Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah; Sen. Patrick Toomey, R-Pennsylvania; and Sen. John Thune, R-South Dakota, are the attendees, the White House has confirmed to CBS News. As the White House tries to steer Congress' attention towards tax reform, other administration controversies -- like the president's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for young immigrants and move to side with Democrats on extending the debt ceiling -- have forced Congress to divide its attention. Republicans are also looking to make a last-ditch attempt on health care, with four GOP senators planning to introduce a measure Wednesday to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Mr. Trump's sudden alliance with Democrats over his own party on extending the debt limit for three months — coupled with his recent harsh criticisms of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and other GOP leaders — may be an indication that he will be more open to working with Democrats in the future on issues like tax reform.
