Pelosi won’t budge: House votes to reopen government with no wall money

Democrats used their new control over the House of Representatives late Thursday to pass two bills that would reopen parts of the government that have been shut down for two weeks.

But the gesture is unlikely to go anywhere, as the bills don’t include any money for President Trump’s border wall. And that will leave Republicans and Democrats without any clear way forward when they meet Friday morning in the hopes of finding a compromise.

Trump is set to meet at 11:30 a.m. at the White House with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., along with other congressional leaders.

“We’ll go down there, we’ll talk,” Hoyer said Thursday. “We’ll try to come to an agreement.”
