Representative Jim Jordan took to the House Floor on Wednesday and explained exactly why Democrats and Republicans can’t make a deal in Congress and his message went instantly viral.

The White House has called on the Democrats to put together a new proposal to end the Government shutdown.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday said that Democrats must be willing to put forward a fresh proposal to end a prolonged partial government shutdown as President Trump prepares for another round of talks with House lawmakers.

“They were no-shows yesterday,” Sanders said of congressional Democrats in an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”

“Hopefully this meeting today can be somewhat different. But at the same time they’ve shown us they’re unwilling to negotiate in good faith,” she added.

The president has sought to engage more moderate members of the House Democratic caucus amid a stalemate with party leadership over border security, but no Democrats attended a Tuesday meeting at the White House after Trump invited members of the moderate Blue Dog Coalition.

Trump has a meeting scheduled Wednesday morning with the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, though it’s unclear who in the group has agreed to attend.

“The president will negotiate but, at this point, he’s not going to negotiate with himself,” Sanders said. “He’s the only one that has a proposal on the table. Democrats have yet to put anything forward other than obstruction.

“It’s time for them to come to the table and work with us,” she said, adding that Trump “is not going to back down.”
