“White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Wednesday that President Donald Trump has done more for bipartisanship in the last eight days than former President Barack Obama did during his eight years in office.

Sanders was referring to the president striking a deal with Democratic leadership last week to keep the government funded and raise the debt ceiling, a move that reportedly left members of his own party furious. On Wednesday evening, Trump planned to have dinner with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). He did not invite Republican congressional leaders.”  MORE
