Trump's Democrat Dalliance

President Trump has pounded Republicans for months on their failure to repeal Obamacare, so this week he met up with moderate House Democrats and Republicans who are trying to sell him on a new fix.

Since then, it seems he has been on a bipartisan high as it was recently reported he made another deal with Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer over debt and DACA.

It's also been recently reported that Trump has complained privately it's difficult to even make small talk with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and told staff he finds Speaker Paul Ryan dry and is a "boy scout" but he likes their rapport.

White House sources say the president has decided he'll work with whoever will give him the win.

One Democratic rep Kurt Schrader remembers Trump's behavior during a recent meeting at the White House with the House Problem Solvers Caucus

“I assumed he was going to lecture us for about an hour and tell us how great he was and talk about the election, but he didn’t do that. It was pretty productive. He engaged members and said, ‘What do you want to do?’”

Another attendee claims Trump was grinning so much at Schumer, it was "almost uncomfortable."

"Schumer just talks to him. You get Mitch and Paul in here, and they're trying to explain this or that, and there is no personal connection.”

Leader of the Problem Solvers Caucus Josh Gottheimer is praising Trump's new viewpoints.

“It’s clear he’s open to a new world here: to do things together. And he said, ‘We’re going to try this. If it doesn’t work, we’ll try a different way.’”
