Before they were done, Trump had shifted gears to a discussion of his concerns about the state's late-term abortion bill.

"This meeting demonstrates the President's willingness to meet regularly with our Nation's governors", White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement.

The Democratic governor met with the Republican president to discuss the $10,000 cap on the federal deduction for state and local taxes - known as SALT. It hit especially hard in states with higher home prices and tax rates such as New York, New Jersey and California.

Prospects for new tax legislation that would expand or remove the $10,000 cap are weak, given the Republican majority in the Senate and concern over the potential for increasing the deficit without corresponding new revenue sources.

Cuomo plans to travel to Washington on Tuesday and return to NY later in the day, a spokesman said.

Strong winds were expected, and officials warned that Sunday could be a "critical danger point" for the fire. Fires started on Monday and Tuesday and quickly spread.

"The president raised his concerns to Governor Cuomo about Democrats' support of late-term abortions", the White House statment read.

There's disconcerting news for both Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, according to a new Siena College poll.

Mr. Cuomo has been broadly criticized after promoting and passing some of the most liberal abortion legislation in the state, guaranteeing women the right to abort their unborn children any time up until birth for vaguely defined reasons of "health", including social well-being. "I want to make the president aware of it", Cuomo said. "I think we'll see talk, but I don't think it will move through the current legislative environment".

Cuomo, a Democrat, said in an interview afterward with WCBS Radio that Trump told him "he was open to discussing" the deduction cap.
