Schumer, Pelosi, Trump 'agree' to fix DACA, exclude wall

While the White House continues to make a public push for tax reform, the president has not actually rolled out a plan but has instead only outlined broad guidelines for what he'd like to see accomplished through reform.

McConnell and fellow Republican congressional leaders opposed the deal but they voted for the legislation when it came to the floor.

Pelosi, the House minority leader, has been in Trump's cross-hairs less frequently than Schumer, the Senate minority leader - but both have faced the president's ire.

In a meeting that stunned majority Republicans in Congress, Trump sided with Democratic leaders Sen.

The Democrats Trump dined with on Tuesday - Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN, and Heitkamp - are the only members of their party IN the Senate who declined to sign on to a list of preconditions for supporting a tax overhaul drawn up by Schumer.

Pat Toomey is one of a handful of politicians set to talk tax reform with President Donald Trump over dinner on Tuesday night. But Trump is also trying to persuade Democrats to support his goal to cut taxes and simplify the tax code. There has been no comprehensive overhaul of the United States tax code since 1986, and the starkly different visions embraced by the two parties for how to move forward promise to make the task hard.

Gottheimer said he "raised the importance" of the deduction with Trump on Wednesday.

Trump said a tax reform plan is being drafted that would focus on the middle class and that "the rich will not be gaining at all with this plan". Centerpiece of the Republican initiative is a simpler tax system with fewer rates. But Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin seemed to cast doubt Tuesday on whether that would be achievable, according to Reuters. "We don't want to forget DACA", Trump told the members at the meeting.

Cuellar added that Trump also said that new border security provisions needed to be part of the immigration legislation, but that the president would not insist that funding for the U.S. -Mexico border wall be included in the package. A bid to dismantle the Obamacare healthcare law fell apart and he has not unveiled detailed proposals on taxes and infrastructure spending.

Manchin told MetroNews during an August 28 appearance in South Charleston he could approve of raising the debt ceiling to an extent if it fit into reworking the tax code.
