NO DEAL: Democrats Still Refuse To Build The Wall In Meeting With Trump
Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer announced that they are plunging ahead with bills in the House to end the government shutdown without providing President Trump his $5 billion in border Wall funding. Those bills have no chance of being introduced in the Senate, according to Mitch McConnell’s spokesman.
“The only reason that they are shutting down the government is very simple. They want to try and leverage that shutdown into their proposals into border security. We want strong border security. We believe ours are better. But to use the shutdown as hostage, which they had no argument against, is wrong,” Schumer said. Schumer said that President Trump is having a “temper tantrum.”
