Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will head to the White House on Thursday for end-of-the-year negotiations with President Trump.

“We’re glad the White House has reached out and asked for a second meeting. We hope the President will go into this meeting with an open mind, rather than deciding that an agreement can’t be reached beforehand," the two Democratic leaders said in a joint statement.

They added that they "are hopeful the President will be open to an agreement to address the urgent needs of the American people and keep government open.”

Schumer and Pelosi pulled out of a meeting scheduled for last week with Trump, after the president tweeted that he was sitting down with "Chuck and Nancy" but that he didn't "see a deal."
