Trump: "I Don't See A Deal" On Keeping Government Open, Leading To Bill Turmoil

President Trump said he will meet on Tuesday with the Democratic leaders of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, to discuss keeping the government open. But, in a tweet, Trump cast doubt on whether they can agree to fund the government beyond a Dec. 8 deadline, saying: "I don't see a deal!"

Trump said Democrats "want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes."

Says Trump: "I don't see a deal!" adding that Democrats "want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes."
