The US President Donald Trump makes new overtures with Democrats.
The US officials said they have begun preliminary talks internally with Democratic lawmakers about areas where they could work together in 2019.
“The president’s always ready to deal. Always,” Shahira Knight, the White House legislative director, said in an interview with The Hill.
If Democrats win majorities in both chambers following the mid-term elections in November, Trump will have to go for a two-party compromise to fulfill his campaign promises, the source noted.
