President Trump and Congressional Democratic Leaders to Meet Again on Infrastructure Wednesday, May 22
Reports have begun to surface that President Trump is set to meet House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and possibly others to discuss funding options. The meeting is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, May 22.
The leaders last met on April 30 at the White House, where they agreed to address an Infrastructure package at the size of $2 trillion. The next step – how to fund such a package. That is what Trump, Pelosi and Schumer will discuss this Tuesday in this critical meeting.
