Donald Trump to meet with Democrats over government shutdown

Donald Trump remained resolute in his demand for funding for a border wall on Sunday as negotiations between Democrats and Republicans, to strike a deal and reopen the US government, stalled. Apparently content to let the shutdown continue indefinitely, he left for meetings at Camp David as determined as ever to secure the $5.6 billion requested to finance his key campaign pledge. In Washington Mike Pence, the vice president restarted talks with key Democrat representatives in an attempt to break the deadlock with the looming threat that Mr. Trump may invoke emergency powers in order to get the wall built.
