President Trump called Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Friday seeking "a path forward on health care," Axios reported Friday night, citing unnamed Republican sources unhappy with the cross-aisle outreach.

"It codifies the Rs' failure on repeal/replace and shows the president can move without hesitation or ideological impediment to make a deal with the Dems," one such source wrote. "It depresses R base turnout in the midterms, as Trump voters are further disconnected from the congressional wing."
