Trump has been planning to leave Washington on Friday to spend 16 days at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., for Christmas and New Year's. The trip is now in doubt with a partial shutdown looming. 
 
The president said he would not sign a spending deal to fund the government through Feb. 8 because it did not include funds for a wall along the southern border.
