White House: 'Large down payment' on wall could end government shutdown

Accepted submission by realDonaldTrump at 2019-01-25 12:04:59

"The White House on Thursday signaled that a 'large down payment' on border wall funding -- and potentially less than the $5.7 billion that President Trump has long requested -- could be sufficient to bring Republicans to the table and end the ongoing partial federal government shutdown.


But Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed the proposal shortly afterward as a nonstarter, saying it was 'not a reasonable agreement.'" []
