Transcript for Trump's big meetings to strike a deal on tax overhaul
President trump pushing hard to get his tax plan passed by Christmas. Heading to capitol hill to rally senate Republicans and the top four leaders at the white house hope be to strike a deal that would prevent a government shutdown. Funding runs out December 8th if there is no deal and Matthew dowd and Meghan McCain are here from "The view." Let me start with you. These meetings today so crucial, such massive business affecting everyone in just the next few weeks. Yes, George, if you take -- even if you take what's going on in foreign policy with what's happening in North Korea, the Russia investigation, everything that is going on in the world and what's happened in Puerto Rico where we still have thousands of people without drinking water and running water and electricity, we have a budget that is out of control.
