Trump will be meeting with Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) and Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), co-chairmen of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, in addition to nearly 10 more bipartisan members of Congress to talk DACA and tax reform, Politico reports. USAToday first reported on the meeting, also noting infrastructure and health care would be on the table, citing congressional sources familiar with the meeting.
Trump is also meeting with a group of bipartisan senators tonight, including Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, and Joe Donnelly of Indiana, per Bloomberg.
Why it matters: Both these meetings reflect Trump's recent willingness to buddy up with Dems and moderates, not just Republicans, as he begins his push on tax reform.
