The US President Donald Trump met with the top Democratic lawmakers, but they did not be able to forcefully hit an endorsement that would end a fragmentary shutdown of government over his orders for billions of dollars to build a border wall with Mexico.
Before taking over the House of Representative, Trump executed no signs of away from his supporting persistence that Congress embark up to $5.6 billion for his “beautiful” southern wall.
Behind closed doors, Trump met with a Democrat named Nancy Pelosi who will be pondered as the representative of the White House, and Chuck Schumer, the minority leader of the Senate. But there were no occurrences into any progress had been made in resolving the standoff.
Schumer said, “ We asked the president to support the bills that we support that will open up government,” Schumer said. I asked him directly, I said ‘Mr. President gives me one good reason why you should continue your shutdown.”
He also added, “ He could not give a good answer”. Republican Kevin McCarthy, who will be the next minority leader of the White House stated that Republican leaders of Congress would return to the White House for more talks.
McCarthy said, “ This doesn’t need to go on very much longer.” But Trump said he was planned to hold out “ as long as it takes” to shield the money he is seeking for the border wall. In a cabinet meeting with Pelosi, Schumer, and the top Republicans, Mccarthy said, “This is national security we’re talking about. It’s too important a subject to walk away from.”
Trump said, “ I think the people of this country think I am right, “ including that it “could be a long time ” before getting the response from the government. The meeting of Trump with Schumer and Pelosi was his first since aggressive meeting in the Oval Office with the diplomatic pair on 11th December.
