'Come over right now' Trump tells Schumer and Pelosi, adding 'I'm ready, willing and able' to negotiate after Democrats reveal plan to force president and Republicans on the defensive over shutdown

President Donald Trump invited Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to the White House on Monday, saying he is 'ready, willing and able' to negotiate a path to reopening the federal government.

'I'm in Washington, I'm ready, willing and able. I'm in the White House, I'm ready to go. They can come over right now, they could've come over anytime,' the president told Fox News in an interview to be broadcast on New Year's Eve.

'I spent Christmas in the White House, I spent New Year's Eve now in the White House. And you know, I'm here, I'm ready to go. It's very important. A lot of people are looking to get their paycheck, so I'm ready to go whenever they want. No, we are not giving up. We have to have border security and the wall is a big part of border security. The biggest part,' he added.

Pelosi arrived at the U.S. Capitol late Monday afternoon after a holiday trip to Hawaii. She is preparing to take over as speaker of the House on Thursday.
