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 TrumpGOP senators balk at lengthy impeachment trial Warren goes local in race to build 2020 movement 2020 Democrats make play for veterans' votes MORE and House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiOvernight Health Care: Trump officials making changes to drug pricing proposal | House panel advances flavored e-cig ban | Senators press FDA tobacco chief on vaping ban Speaker Pelosi, it's time to throw American innovators a lifeline Why Americans must tune in to the Trump impeachment hearings MORE (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerOvernight Health Care: Trump officials making changes to drug pricing proposal | House panel advances flavored e-cig ban | Senators press FDA tobacco chief on vaping ban Chad Wolf becomes acting DHS secretary Schumer blocks drug pricing measure during Senate fight, seeking larger action 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.
