AMNESTY ALERT: Trump, Schumer, Pelosi Have Two Weeks to Figure Out the Border Wall

A year-end spending deal to fund one-quarter of the federal government rests on a critical meeting this week between President Trump and two top Democrats.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will meet with Trump Tuesday morning to talk about what agreement the two sides can reach, if any, when it comes to funding for a southern border wall.
The meeting is critical not just to resolve the unfinished funding for fiscal 2019 and avoid a partial government shutdown, but to potentially set the tone for the new Congress, when Democrats take over the House majority.
Trump has talked of striking deals with the Democrats on infrastructure and other agenda items, and the meeting will be an early test of his ability to do so. But the wall funding issue has been particularly divisive for the two sides.
Trump, who campaigned on building a southern border wall, has insisted on up to $5 billion in fiscal year 2019 for the project. But Democrats are in lockstep resisting any more funding than a $1.6 billion accord reached in the Senate.
