Trump willing to keep gov’t closed for very long time: Schumer

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer says President Trump is willing to keep the government closed for 'months or even years.'

He made the remarks on Friday after Democratic leaders met with Trump at the White House.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said lawmakers cannot resolve the issue of border security until the government is reopened, telling reporters that a meeting with Trump about the standoff over funding for his long-promised border wall and the federal shutdown was contentious.

"We just completed a lengthy and sometimes contentious conversation with the president.

We agreed that we would continue our conversations.

But we recognize on the Democratic side that we really cannot resolve this until we open up government and we made that very clear to the president," Pelosi told reporters at the White House after meeting with Trump.
