Talks to end the partial government shutdown are going nowhere fast. A White House meeting between President Trump and congressional leaders ended abruptly yesterday when Trump walked out of the room, calling it a “waste of time” in a later tweet. Trump apparently called off the discussion after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reaffirmed that Democrats would not approve funding for a border wall.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called Trump's departure unfortunate and unbecoming of a president. This morning, the president responded to Schumer’s claims that he threw a “tantrum” and slammed his hand on a table.
Trump continues to demand more than $5 billion for a barrier on the southern border.
