The President sent out a single tweet addressing his concerns regarding Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi being weak on immigration and crime and wanting to raise taxes:
Meeting with “Chuck and Nancy” today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!

Both Schumer and Pelosi promptly (and predictably) cancelled their appearance at that White House meeting which soon after resulted in this photo op:
The Trump White House placed the President in between the two empty chairs of Pelosi and Schumer and even included their name placards while the President then opened the meeting noting their absence and making remarks about the very serious North Korea missile launch.
The Democrat leadership was exposed yet again for being petty pouters who put their own personal feelings before the safety and security of the nation. Mr. Trump knows this. He wants others to know it as well.
Also, note buffalo fighting off the wolves in the background.
That was no accident, either.
