President Donald Trump said on Twitter that a meeting with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on funding a wall along the southern border of America was a “total waste of time.”

Trump met with Congressional leaders with both parties on Wednesday as a government shutdown approaches the three-week mark. At odds is a disagreement between Trump and Congressional Democrats on funding a border wall. Trump has demanded more than $5 billion in funding from Congress for a border wall in exchange for agreeing to reopen the government.
