On Wednesday night, President Trump had dinner at the White House with Senate and House Minority Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. And in the wake of that development, two of the Big Three Networks (ABC and NBC), who had been almost exclusively negative about Trump for the last several months, suddenly found nice things to say about him.
“President Trump is reaching across the aisle inviting Congressional Democratic leaders to join him for dinner at the White House this evening,” hyped Anchor Lester Host as he led into the segment on NBC Nightly News. “They'll have a lot on their plates from taxes to health care, but not getting a spot at the table, top Republican leaders.”
NBC Chief White House Correspondent Hallie Jackson began her report by noting how “President Trump [was] working to woo Democrats with an open door and open arms.” And after noting that the issues tax reform, health care, and the protection of Dreamers where “on the menu,” she seemed almost gleeful that Republican leaders were not invited.
