After Failed White House Meeting, Republicans Suggest Shutdown Agreement Could Take 'Weeks'
No deal emerged on Wednesday from a White House meeting between President Trump and the congressional leadership of both parties, with the president saying there is no end in sight to the partial government shutdown. Democrats pitched at the meeting reopening the government by funding nearly all the shuttered agencies with full-year appropriations and kicking the can on Homeland Security Department spending to give more time for border negotiations. House Democrats are poised to vote on two measures to accomplish that on Thursday after new members of the 116th Congress are sworn into office. Democrats noted the bills they will consider previously won bipartisan approval in the Senate.

No deal was reached on ending the government shutdown that came in to effect on Saturday, president Donald Trump's anniversary in office. While the real effects of the shutdown were limited on the weekend, this could change on Monday when government employees will be furloughed.
