So far, Donald Trump has not been able to move anything through Congress. So, his White House is signaling he’ll recalibrate, and look to Democrats to get his legislative priorities passed. BUT, BUT, BUT: Top aides to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) say they HAVE NOT been approached by Trump or his aides since the health care bill went down last week. And the coordination before that was minimal, to say the best.
— REALITY CHECK FROM A HOUSE DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP AIDE: “On tax reform, infrastructure and budget, we have yet to see anything we can go along with … no details whatsoever. The White House has not communicated with Democratic leaders and they don’t even have policy principles, let alone proposals, to point to on their supposed legislative priorities. They have been on a far right trajectory focusing on items, such as the Muslim ban, that have made cooperation virtually impossible. They need a hard reboot.”
