"If the President reverses course and decides he wants to be a constructive force...we're happy to meet with him anytime, anywhere, anyplace", Schumer told reporters on Tuesday.

While it was far from the first time that Trump's tweets and broadsides have been used to deflect attention, they nonetheless offered fresh evidence of the president's tendency to latch on to particular cultural touchstones and refuse to let them go. The White House welcomed the vote as "an important step toward passing historic tax relief", predicting agreement by the end of the year.

Schumer and Pelosi said they would meet with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) instead.

"Meeting with "Chuck and Nancy" today about keeping government open and working", the President wrote on Twitter.

Trump's broadsides may seem random but they serve the president well on another front, by energizing his core supporters with darts that are sure to delight.

Mr. Trump, though, said he won't hesitate to blame Democrats for a shutdown.

"He's wrong. It's not going to make any difference", Warren said.

Republican leaders did not bite on Democrats' efforts to cut Trump out of the negotiations, even though privately, both sides agree that Trump's unpredictability seriously upends negotiations.

Note that the question of whether to change the US approach to the DPRK after the new launch, trump said, "Nothing will change".

"The staffs were making great progress until the president stepped in".

But Trump has shown a willingness to work with Schumer and Pelosi before. Long gone are the days when the president mused about cutting deals with his Democratic counterparts "Chuck and Nancy".

The tweet was jarring to Democrats, given that Trump had briefly struck a nascent deal with them a few months ago to discuss protecting young undocumented immigrants. Using not just President Trump's tweets, but an official White House statement on the issue is a much more effective way of pushing back than simply not showing up.
