Schumer: Trump threatened to keep government shut down for years | TheHill

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Friday said President Trump threatened to keep the government closed for “months or even years” until he gets his desired wall funding.

Schumer made the remarks following a closed-door meeting at the White House with Trump and congressional leaders.

Emerging from the White House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) described a “lengthy and sometimes contentious conversation with the president.” She said both sides agreed to continue talks but added that Democrats don’t believe the standoff is resolved until the government is re-opened.
