Trump to talk to Pelosi, Schumer next week

United States President Donald Trump will meet Congress Democrats next Tuesday, the Hill reported on Saturday. Top Democrat in the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are believed to be meeting with them president in an attempt to reach a bipartisan deal to avoid a government shutdown.

One of the topics that is expected to be in the meeting is border security and funding for the wall on the Mexican border. Trump is looking to get at least $5 billion for the wall in the next two years while the Democrats think the figure shouldn't be higher than $1.6 billion annually.

Before departing for the G20 summit in Argentina, Trump warned he is prepared for a government shutdown over border security.
