GOP, Dem Leaders Come to Table to Discuss DACA, Border

The pundit world called the deal President Donald Trump struck with minority Democrats in Congress shocking, astounding and remarkable. "That's exciting and I think that's going to happen", said Manchin.

Manchin said in a statement Tuesday evening there was a "productive conversation" about the areas of agreement and the compromises that could be made.

Donnelly said he was pleased that Trump supports measures that would address "the outsourcing of American jobs".

"I'm hoping that in October we get a budget resolution out of a conference committee so that both the House and Senate have passed the final budget legislation", Toomey said.

Aides say the president's tax cut tour may include visits to as many 13 more states in the coming weeks. And Mr. McConnell said he did so over the objections of Senator Chuck Schumer of NY, the Democratic leader and aforementioned counterpart.

Rep. Josh Gottheimer, D-N.J., a leader of the House Problem Solvers Caucus, said the White House legislative affairs office invited him and other members to discuss health care, tax reform and infrastructure.

Mulvaney said that Trump is trying to determine whether any Democrats will work with him on tax legislation; he met Tuesday evening with three Senate Democrats who face re-election in states the president won a year ago.

Democrats, who generally oppose tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, will have negotiating clout in Congress in early December to resist tax changes they oppose, also potentially including a corporate rate cut.

A vote on an expected Democratic budget proposal is scheduled for Thursday. "It's very obvious. It's obvious as - it's obvious as the - it's obvious as night follows day is what they're trying to do", Bannon said Sunday on CBS's "60 Minutes".

Some Republicans expressed opposition to Trump's deal with the Democrats, and conservative groups accused the president of caving in rather than insisting on spending cuts to accompany the debt ceiling increase. He'll release details this afternoon.

The second-most important goal is a simplified tax code, followed by the need for tax incentives to repatriate foreign earnings and lowering the capital gains tax rate.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin arrives at the Capitol for a closed-door meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, as they struggle to get a tax code overhaul, in Washington, Tuesday, Sept. The Trump tax plan would boost the incomes of millionaires by at least 5% right off the top. "If Mitch McConnell can not get this done. with the House in Republicans hands, obviously the Senate and the presidency, then I think it's time for him and a lot of his colleagues to go into a different line of work", Ingraham said.

"Ideally, he'd like to get it down to 15 percent".
