The Republican Minority Whip in the House seems to be warning President Donald Trump against an infrastructure package.

According to Politico reporter Melanie Zanona, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) said that the Republican members in the House don't have a taste for any landmark legislation that might be an addition to the deficit.

"Minority Whip Steve Scalise says he does NOT think there is an appetite in the GOP for a $2 trillion infrastructure bill," Zanona tweeted Monday.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are scheduled to meet with Trump Tuesday. While an agenda for the meeting has not been set, the group is expected to discuss a bipartisan deal on a huge infrastructure package that Trump promised during the 2016 campaign.

The president reportedly hates the plan that his own administration came up with. He could find a partnership with Democrats, but it may alienate members of Trump's party.

The legislation would be the biggest test yet of Trump's power over the Republican Party.
