White House: Trump to dine with Schumer and Pelosi - tonight

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will have dinner with Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday night, the latest overture by the Republican president to work with his adversaries.

The White House said that Trump had invited the two Democratic leaders to dinner, more than week after the president reached an agreement with Schumer and Pelosi — despite objections from Republicans — on a three-month agreement to raise the debt ceiling, keep the government running and speed hurricane relief to states. The president and the congressional leaders are expected to discuss the fall deadlines facing Congress.

Trump has said he’s simply doing “what the people of the United States want to see. They want to see some dialogue.”

Congressional aides said Schumer and Pelosi were expected to discuss protections for young immigrants and stabilizing the health care markets. Trump has fumed at the Republican-led Congress’ inability to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama’s health care law. He has given Congress six months to come up with a solution before he ends a program that protects from deportation young immigrants living in the country illegally, many of them brought here as children.

3. I remember an interview with Cardinal Jamie Sin.

He described dinner with Ferdinand Marcos as a "penance".

I don't know what trumps table manners are like, but if his other manners are any indication......
