Wary of shutdown, Trump inches toward support for wall deal

Updated : February 14, 2019 06:39 AM IST

Trump, widely blamed for a five-week shutdown that ended in January, said he did not want to see federal agencies close again because of fighting over funds for the wall, one of his signature campaign promises in the 2016 election.
The Republican president did not commit himself to back the government funding agreement struck between Democratic and Republican lawmakers this week.
"I don't want to see a shutdown. A shutdown would be a terrible thing. I think a point was made with the last shutdown," Trump told reporters.
