The Senate Budget Committee passed Trump's tax reform bill later on Tuesday in a session that had been seen as a formality, but became fraught after Trump's tweets. The effect is they can't negotiate with Trump until he rescinds the tweet attacking them.

The president has been mocking Democratic Sen.

He's been fanning the NFL-anthem issue throughout the fall football season.

In an earlier statement, the two Democratic leaders said that instead of meeting the president, they meant to negotiate directly with their Republican counterparts in an attempt to avert a government shutdown next month.

The two Democrats pulled out of a budget-deal meeting with Donald Trump on Tuesday, after the president bashed them on Twitter, saying "I don't see a deal!" .

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Schumer and Pelosi, who requested a meeting with McConnell and Ryan, "need to understand the way the government works".

Trump's broadsides may seem random but they serve the president well on another front, by energizing his core supporters with darts that are sure to delight.

Speaking to reporters in the Roosevelt Room in the White House after North Korea launched a ballistic missile over the Sea of Japan, Mr Trump said that it would not change the U.S. strategy towards North Korea. Trump and Republicans are blaming Democrats for being "petty". Even in a country that has grown more diverse with each passing decade, the president has brushed aside criticism that the term is a racial slur.

"I would absolutely blame Democrats if that happens", he said.

"He's wrong. It's not going to make any difference", Warren said. "Now it's even worse; it's not even talk", Mr. Trump said. But that's a dice roll, especially when President Trump's inevitable tweets making the opposite argument will get at least equal time in front of the public. Pelosi tweeted after Trump's White House session that "his empty chair photo opp showed he's more interested in stunts than in addressing the needs of the American people". Long gone are the days when the president mused about cutting deals with his Democratic counterparts "Chuck and Nancy". They are determined to secure legislation to protect the young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers who arrived as children but were put at risk by Mr. Trump's decision to end the Obama-era program that shields them from deportation.

Trump's allies dismiss the notion that the president's focus on side issues is an unwelcome distraction during a week in which the administration hopes to clear a big hurdle on taxes and give the president a major legislative achievement before the 2018 midterm elections after frustrating setbacks on health care.

"There's no option for failure here".

"They should be calling immediately and to say 'we want to see you, '" Trump told reporters, "but probably they won't because nothing to them is important except for raising taxes".
