President Trump is meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) at the White House on Wednesday evening, just one day after dining with Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), and Joe Donnelly (Ind.). Trump is expected to discuss health care and the DREAM Act with the Democratic leaders. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump's dinner meetings with Democrats, even as he has not included House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) or Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). "The idea that the Republican ideas are not represented in that room is ridiculous," Sanders said Wednesday. "This president has done more for bipartisanship in the last eight days than President Obama did in eight years."
