"Unfortunately, we did not make progress today," Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told reporters after meeting for more than an hour with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. "I've told them to come back when you're ready to give us a higher number," Pelosi told reporters.
