President Trump telephoned Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday in an effort to revive health-care legislation, Republican sources said.

Trump was seeking "a path forward on health care," a GOP source said.

Be smart: The president's call shows he may be open to future deals with Democratic leaders, in the mold of the "Chuck and Nancy" agreements on the debt limit and immigration that he struck in September.
