Pence Says Democrats Refusing to Negotiate

Vice President Mike Pence says Democrats are refusing to negotiate with the White House over funding for a border wall, the issue that led to the government shutdown. During a Monday press briefing, Pence said Congressional Democrats told him over the weekend that they wouldn’t negotiate so long as the government remained closed. He added that Team Trump has already given in on its demand for a concrete wall – they’ll opt for more of a metal fence – but they are still demanding $5.7 billion to fund it.
