WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump and Congress (all times local):

11 p.m.

President Donald Trump is resuming his Twitter feud with an old foe: Hillary Clinton.

Trump writes, "Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss."

He adds, "She lost the debates and lost her direction!"

Clinton has been making the media rounds promoting her new book, "What Happened," in which she recounts her loss to Trump in last year's presidential election. Clinton has said she takes "responsibility for all" her campaign's mistakes.

Trump tweets: "The 'deplorables' came back to haunt Hillary. They expressed their feelings loud and clear." At a campaign event last year, Clinton said half of Trump's supporters belong in a "basket of deplorables."

Overall, Trump says, "She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!"

President Donald Trump is preaching bipartisanship as he meets with a group of moderate members of Congress from both parties Wednesday.

Trump says as he begins the meeting that "More and more we're trying to work things out together." He says that's a positive thing for both parties.

The meeting's main focus is tax reform.

But Trump says he wants to see "if we can do something in a bipartisan fashion so that we can solve the DACA problem and other immigration problems." He's talking about a program he's phasing out that protects some young immigrants in the country illegally.

Trump adds that "some of the greatest legislation ever passed" was done in a bipartisan manner and says he's hoping to give that a "shot."

Why aren't "Mitch and Paul" invited to President Donald Trump's dinner Wednesday with "Chuck and Nancy"?

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders essentially says there's no need for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan when Trump meets with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

After all, she said, "You've got the leader of the Republican Party sitting at the table" — referring to Trump. The president has taken to calling his recent Democratic visitors by their first names — Chuck and Nancy.

Sanders says Trump has done "more for bipartisanship in the past eight days" than President Barack Obama did during his eight years in office.

Speaking at Wednesday's press briefing, Sanders added that Trump is "committed to working with Democrats" and insisted that Obama wasn't.

11:28 a.m.

The White House says President Donald Trump will have dinner on Wednesday night with Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

The dinner comes as the Republican president has sought to work more closely with the Democratic leaders in Congress to enact his legislative agenda.

Trump reached an agreement with Schumer and Pelosi last week — despite objections from Republicans — on a three-month agreement to raise the debt ceiling, keep the government running and speed hurricane relief to states.

The president has said he's simply doing "what the people of the United States want to see. They want to see some dialogue."
