President Donald Trump will meet with top lawmakers Monday for the first time since his inauguration, reports Politico.

The invite list includes: Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, along with party whips John Cornyn, Steny Hoyer and Dick Durbin.

Trump has been busy since taking office on Friday but is awaiting confirmation on 19 of his cabinet picks — only James Mattis and John Kelly have been sworn in to posts.

In a statement Friday he called on senators to "fulfill their constitutional obligation and swiftly confirm the remainder of my highly qualified Cabinet nominees, so that we can get to work on behalf of the American people without further delay."

Obamacare is another topic that could be discussed as Democratic leaders have protested the repeal of the Affordable Care Act with no replacement offered yet.
