Donald Trump and top Republicans vow 'bold agenda' as president assails book

"He changed his tune pretty quick", Trump said in response to a question about Bannon from a reporter during a meeting with GOP senators at the White House.

Before addressing the media, he posted five tweets on Twitter Saturday, including a description of himself as a "very stable genius" because he "went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star to President of the United States (on my first try)".

Senator Mark Warner said committee staff have interviewed everyone at the meeting, where President Trump's son Donald Jr. expected to be given derogatory information about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, with the exception of "one or two individuals who are Russian".

Later in the press conference, the president said he has no current plans to back challenges to incumbent Republicans in Congress. The president's lawyer sent a cease-and-desist letter to the book's publisher and is threatening to sue Wolff.

Trump answered a wide range of questions for about 10 minutes.

The president touted announcements from several companies that have said they will give raises or bonuses to their employees in the wake of the tax overhaul.

Trump also tried to make the case again that "there's been no collusion" and "no crime".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said talks with Democrats on a broader immigration measure are showing promise and could result in legislation this month.

"These priorities will include: ensuring continued economic growth, national security, promoting responsible immigration reform, funding our troops, rebuilding our nation's crumbling infrastructure, the FY19 budget, welfare reform, the opioid crisis, healthcare, the 2018 elections and confirming the president's qualified nominees", Walters said.

Trump and party leaders face a January 19 deadline on passing legislation to prevent a government shutdown.

President Donald Trump is holding out the prospect of a deal with Democrats on the fate of young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

"Each one of them is different", said John Kinnaird, the mayor of Thurmont.

And president said he still has faith in his attorney general, who was not among the eight Cabinet members invited to Camp David for two days. The lawmakers were treated to a movie Friday night: "The Greatest Showman", a 2017 musical that celebrates the vision of P.T. Barnum, who created the Barnum & Bailey Circus.

He said "we are looking at it" but that the goal was to get a bipartisan deal on welfare reform.

Heck, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is. A White House official said the timing of legislation would be discussed, as well as the November election. The Kentucky Republican, along with some more political-minded House leaders, worry that such a proposal could backfire on swing-state Republicans during the mid-term elections and cripple their majority. He said he would campaign with existing Senate Republicans to help Republicans keep the majority as well as "anybody else that has my kind of thinking".

"Yeah, Camp David is very rustic, it's nice, you'd like it", he said.

Senate Republicans are already dismissing a promised push by House conservatives to curb benefit programs like welfare and food stamps, and it's unclear what agenda items would get the requisite Democratic support for success, particularly in the Senate. A Democratic House would entirely eliminate their power to enact legislation on a party-line basis as they did with the tax bill (and almost did with health-care legislation), while turning the investigatory committees of that chamber over to a hostile party that's not going to participate in Trump's malicious fantasy pursuit of Crooked Hillary or James Comey. Dean Heller, R-Nev., "will have a hard path to re-election".
