As government shutdown looms just days away, no agreement is in sight

As the deadline to avert a government shutdown fast approaches with no clear agreement in sight, Congress and President Donald Trump remain at a stalemate over the president’s demand for billions of dollars of funds to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The president has threatened to veto any spending bill that does not contain the funds, and congressional Democrats have vowed to block any legislation that does. With both sides standing firm in their demands and the clock ticking, it remains unclear if a deal can be reached to keep the government running past this Friday.
