The shutdown today: Trump urged to reopen government
— January 13, 2019— What’s up with the partial government shutdown on Day 24.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who is close to President Donald Trump, says he’s been pushing the president to reopen the government for a few weeks to continue negotiating with Democrats over funding for a border wall before bypassing Congress and declaring a national emergency.
“If we can’t (get a deal) at the end of three weeks, all bets are off,” Graham told “Fox News Sunday.”
