It's a misleading tweet - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (N.Y.) don't want to raise taxes on Americans, for example - but the gist of it is that Democrats oppose the Republican tax bill and want to protect "dreamer" immigrants, so why should Trump trust them to negotiate in good faith?
"Given that the president doesn't see a deal between Democrats and the White House, we believe the best path forward is to continue negotiating with our Republican counterparts in Congress instead", their statement said. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan also reprimanded their Democratic colleagues for not showing up, though it was possible to nearly miss their presence, sitting at far ends of the table.

Rep. Tom Cole, an Oklahoma Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, said it would be hard for Democrats to blame Republicans for a shutdown if they were the ones who walked away from talks with the president.

Pelosi and Schumer added they "don't have any time to waste" in addressing the issues on their agenda and would work with Republicans who are "interested in reaching bipartisan agreement". Or will they vote against it and shut down the government?

Back at the White House, with empty seats beside him featuring name tags for Schumer and Pelosi, Trump addressed the media.
