Sunday shows preview: Shutdown enters week three

The partial shutdown of the federal government entered its third week on Sunday as thousands of government employees remain furloughed and Congress appears no closer to reaching a deal with the president to approve funding.

Members of the White House and new Democratic House majority will offer differing views on the shutdown on Sunday's talk show circuit following another week of meetings between President TrumpDonald John TrumpForget the spin: Five unrefuted Mueller Report revelations Lara Trump: Merkel admitting migrants 'one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany' Financial satisfaction hits record high: survey MORE and House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy Patricia D'Alesandro PelosiDemocrats are playing voters on their fantasies for impeachment The Hill's Morning Report - Trump tells House investigators 'no' Seven big decisions facing Biden in 2020 primary MORE (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerMJ Hegar announces Texas Senate bid Hillicon Valley: House Dems subpoena full Mueller report | DOJ pushes back at 'premature' subpoena | Dems reject offer to view report with fewer redactions | Trump camp runs Facebook ads about Mueller report | Uber gets B for self-driving cars Dem legal analyst says media 'overplayed' hand in Mueller coverage MORE (D-N.Y.) and their congressional Republican colleagues.


Schumer emerged from the most recent meeting between Trump and the Democrats on Friday with news that the president threatened a shutdown lasting months or even years, as the White House remains unwilling to accept a funding plan that does not include money for Trump's plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

"We told the president we needed the government open,” Schumer told reporters following the meeting. “He resisted. In fact, he said he’d keep the government closed for a very long period of time, months or even years.”

Pelosi, meanwhile, remained steadfast in her view that Democrats would not approve a single dollar for Trump's controversial border security proposal.

“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.
