    President Trump invites Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to private White House dinner

    President Trump invites Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to private White House dinner

    President Trump has invited his new best friends — Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi — to a private dinner at the White House.

    The two Democratic congressional leaders will join Trump and several cabinet members for a meal Wednesday night, continuing the Republican President's sudden kinship with the other party, which has horrified his GOP colleagues.

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the dinner conversation will center on tax reform and other major legislation that will be tackled in the coming months. A source familiar with the invitation told the Daily News the senators also plan to bring up protections for Dreamer immigrants who are threatened by Trump's winding down of DACA.

    Trump and the top Democrats will be joined by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, the top two Republicans in Congress, will be noticeably absent.

    For most of this year, Trump has made the Senate and House minority leaders some of his biggest targets in Congress. He has called Schumer a "clown" and "Fake Tears Chuck" because the New York senator teared up at a protest of Trump's travel ban. California representative Pelosi, meanwhile, is a "loser" and a liar, according to Trump.

    But Trump stunned Congress last week when he struck an unexpected deal with the Democrats on debt ceiling and government spending legislation, shunning discussions he held with Republican leaders and his own staff.

    Sanders defended Trump's sudden peace offerings to the left by arguing that he is suddenly committed to bipartisan cooperation. She insisted he is not shunning his own party.

    "You’ve got the leader of the Republican Party sitting at the table," she said about the dinner.

    "Anybody who thinks the Republican viewpoint isn’t being represented is completely misunderstanding that the President is the leader of the Republican Party."

    I'm glad Ross, Mnuchin and Mulvaney are there. Not sure why Kelly is there. Oh, to discuss border security and interior enforcement. We don't have a new DHS Secretary yet.
