Standoff: Trump, Pelosi Dig in Heels Over Border Wall

House Leader Nancy Pelosi (Live On-Air News YouTube channel)

It looks like there's no end in sight to the battle over the border, and now President Trump has another challenge on his hands.

As the new Democratic House of Representatives is sworn in Thursday, they're showing few signs of willingness to negotiate a deal.

After a meeting at the White House Wednesday, Democrats again refused to give Trump and the GOP the money for a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.

New Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi says "there's no amount of persuasion" from the president that could get her to fund the wall.

Democrats have made an offer on the budget, but it doesn't include funding for a wall.

"We're asking the president to open up government," Pelosi said. "We're giving him a Republican path to do that. Why would he not do it? Why would he not do it?"

The president hosted a bipartisan briefing on border security in the Situation Room Wednesday as the partial government shutdown drags on, now in its 13th day.

"Could be a long time and it could be quickly," said Trump. "Could be a long time. It's too important a subject to walk away from."
