Senate seeks solution to open US government, Trump insists on wall

Updated : January 25, 2019 06:33 AM IST

After the Republican-led Senate failed to advance two measures to reopen shuttered agencies, Democratic and Republican lawmakers spoke on the Senate floor and urged quick passage of a three-week, stopgap funding bill to create time for talks on border security.
Trump said if Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer come to a "reasonable" agreement to end the partial government shutdown, "I would support it, yes."
Earlier, a bill backed by Trump to end the shutdown by funding the wall and a separate bill supported by Democrats to reopen shuttered agencies without such funding did not get the votes required to advance in the 100-member chamber.
