Democrats, Trump fail to strike deal to re-open government
Top Democrats emerged from a White House meeting with President Donald Trump on Friday without a deal to re-open the government. With a partial shutdown on its 14th day, Trump and congressional leaders met to discuss border security and the president's proposed wall. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the dispute over border security can't be resolved "until we open up government," and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters Trump said he'd keep the government closed for a long period of time.
