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 TrumpFacebook releases audit on conservative bias claims Harry Reid: 'Decriminalizing border crossings is not something that should be at the top of the list' Recessions happen when presidents overlook key problems MORE and House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiJohnson eyes Irish border in Brexit negotiations Mueller report fades from political conversation Five key players in Trump's trade battles MORE (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerJohnson eyes Irish border in Brexit negotiations Lewandowski on potential NH Senate run: If I run, 'I'm going to win' Appropriators warn White House against clawing back foreign aid 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.
