Trump seeks border wall talk with congressional leaders as shutdown drags on

President Trump has invited congressional leaders of both parties to the White House on Wednesday to discuss a fight over his proposed border wall, which prompted a partial government shutdown.

A congressional source confirmed to the Washington Examiner that Trump proposed the meeting, framing it as a briefing on “border security.”

The invitation went to the top two leaders of each party in each chamber. That list includes House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and likely House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md.; House GOP leaders Kevin McCarthy of California and Steve Scalise of Louisiana; Senate Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer of New York and Dick Durbin of Illinois; and Senate Republican leaders Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and John Thune of South Dakota.

A second congressional source told the Washington Examiner that the proposed briefing would include Department of Homeland Security officials, but said it might be canceled, because some congressional leaders remain out of town after the holidays.
