WASHINGTON (AP) Democratic and Republican congressional leaders are expected to attend a briefing on border security at the White House as the government remains partially shut down and President Donald Trump asks in a tweet, Lets make a deal?
The partial government shutdown began on Dec. 22. Funding for Trumps pet project, a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, has been the sticking point in passing budgets for several government departments.
The briefing is scheduled for this afternoon, the day before Democrats are to assume control of the House and end the Republican monopoly on government.
