Trump says he can work with Democrats for the good of the country

President Trump said Monday he’s willing to work with House Democrats on trade and other issues that are “good for our country,” seeming to back off his vow last week that he can’t cooperate with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while her troops are investigating him on multiple fronts.

“I think that we will work with them,” Mr. Trump said of congressional Democrats at a press conference in Tokyo. “Certainly, as things get approved I would love to sign them. I’m only interested in what’s good for our country.”

The president cited his trade deal with Canada and Mexico, one of his top priorities, that is awaiting congressional approval.

“Unions love it. Farmers love it. Manufacturers love it,” Mr. Trump said. “It’s a great deal. I would imagine that Nancy Pelosi will approve that. I would think it would be very hard not to, but we’ll see.”

Last week, Mr. Trump walked out of a White House meeting with Democratic leaders after confronting Mrs. Pelosi for saying that he was “engaged in a cover-up” by stonewalling various House investigations. The president announced that he wouldn’t work with Democrats until they “get these phony investigations over with.”
