Can't say yet if WH will accept deal: Gidley

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Donald Trump has not yet decided whether to back an agreement hammered out by congressional negotiators to avert another partial government shutdown that includes funds for U.S.-Mexican border security but not for his promised wall, the White House said on Tuesday.

Democratic and Republican negotiators reached the tentative deal on Monday night on border security provisions and money to keep several government agencies including the Department of Homeland Security funded through Sept.

30, the end of the current fiscal year.

Temporary funding for about a quarter of the government is due to expire on Friday.

The Republican president triggered a 35-day partial government shutdown with his December demand for Congress to give him $5.7 billion to help build the border wall, which is opposed by Democrats.

At a rally in Texas on Monday night, he made clear he would not drop his quest for a wall.

Trump has not yet made up his mind on the deal reached by lawmakers, said a White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"No decision has been made," the official said.
