She was asked whether there’s any scenario under which Democrats would accept “even a dollar” for new construction of Trump’s border wall.

“A dollar? A dollar? Yeah, one dollar,” Pelosi told a group of reporters just off of the House floor.

She later seemed to rescind even that offer.

“We’re not doing a wall. Does anybody have any doubt about that? We are not doing a wall. So that’s that,” she said.

“It has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with: The wall is an immorality between countries. It’s an old way of thinking [and] it isn’t cost-effective.”

House Democrats are expected to vote later on Thursday on a spending package to fund the government, which is currently partially shutdown after negotiations stalled over Trump's desired $5 billion for border wall construction. Trump has threatened to veto the bills.
