WASHINGTON — The shuttered parts of the federal government were no closer to being reopened Wednesday after President Donald Trump and congressional leaders met for the first time since the shutdown began nearly two weeks ago.

“I don’t think any particular progress was made today, but we talked,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters. “We’re hopeful that somehow in the coming days and weeks we’ll be able to reach an agreement.”

The White House described Wednesday’s meeting, held in the Situation Room, as a border security briefing.
