Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly among Democrats meeting with President Trump


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is expected to have lunch Thursday with a group of moderate Senate Democrats who could play a key role in his legislative agenda.

The lunch is expected to include Sens. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, and Jon Tester of Montana.

Trump faces a narrow Republican majority in the Senate and hopes to secure some support among Democrats for his agenda and the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. All four Senate Democrats face re-election in 2018.

The lunch was first reported by USA Today and confirmed by the Senate offices. The White House did not immediately provide details on the lunch, which is also expected to include Republican lawmakers.


  1. Donnelly will change his votes for any reason at the drop of a hat. remember the Bail Out vote “Lyin Joe”? Surely Trump already knows all about ” Lyin Joe”. Be interesting to find out what this lunch is really about.
