Pelosi says “nothing for the wall” in legislation to end shutdown


Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi reiterated her party’s position against President Donald Trump’s demand for $5 billion in funding for border wall.

She said Democrats will not include money for the border wall in any legislation to end the partial government shutdown.

In a taped interview with NBC’s Today show, which is set to air on Thursday morning, Pelosi said, “No, nothing for the wall.”

The Democrats will officially take control of the House on Thursday. Pelosi will likely reclaim the Speaker’s gavel.

On Wednesday, Pelosi and other congressional leaders met with Trump at the White House to reach an agreement on border security. Their negotiation was unproductive.
