WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is meeting with Republican members of the House Tuesday, one day after he drew bipartisan ire for a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in which he cast doubt on his intelligence community and said the U.S. was partially responsible for strained relations with Moscow.

According to the White House, Trump will discuss the next wave of tax reform in the White House’s Roosevelt Room with the following members of the House Ways and Means Committee:

  • Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas)
  • Rep. Mike Bishop (R-Mich.)
  • Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.)
  • Rep. George Holding (R-N.C.)
  • Rep. Jim Renacci (R-Ohio
  • Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.)
  • Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.)

While there is no indication the president’s press conference will be addressed in the closed-door meeting, some of the invited members have criticized Trump’s remarks in his joint news conference with Putin after their summit.

The meeting is the only item on the president’s Tuesday schedule, which was updated Monday evening to remove an intelligence briefing and lunch with the vice president.
