Democratic Leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Calif., and Sen. Chuck Schumer, N.Y., responded to President Trump’s challenge for them to make a deal on immigration, claiming he is trying to divert from healthcare by focusing on immigration.

“The president is desperate to change the subject from healthcare to immigration because he knows that healthcare is the number one issue Americans care about,” the leaders said in a joint statement released Saturday.

Trump said in a tweet Saturday morning that Democrats are seeking to obstruct any path forward to a bipartisan deal on immigration, ending it with "Chuck & Nancy, call me!"

The president also said if there is cooperation between the two parties, he believes an immigration deal could be reached in "less than one hour."

Schumer and Pelosi sought to bring the discussion back to health care, which is something they have said would be a Democratic priority if they win back a majority in Congress.

“Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and Republicans in Washington are making a mess of our health care system, causing premiums to increase and care to decrease while threatening to gut protections for pre-existing conditions,” the leaders’ statement continues. “Democrats are focused like a laser on health care and will not be diverted.”
