Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi say they won't attend a bipartisan meeting at the White House Tuesday after President Trump tweeted: "they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don't see a deal!"

The meeting invitation still stands, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan have said they plan to be there.
