President Trump, along with House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), slammed their Democratic counterparts for skipping negotiations on tax reform on Tuesday.

The president left open two seats to his left and his right, and in front of each lay a name card – one for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and another for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

Trump said that GOP tax reform efforts would be good “for the country.”

Ryan echoed the president’s sentiments, calling out his Democratic colleagues. “I think it’s regrettable that our Democratic colleagues and the leadership chose not to join us today,” he said. Ryan added that congressional leaders should “always” be open to negotiations.

McConnell also took issue with the no-show Democrats, claiming he never turned down a chance to go to the White House to meet with President Obama.

Trump also took a shot at the Democrats’ policy positions, criticizing them for favoring tax hikes and a weak national defense.
