Watch live: Trump discusses shutdown at signing ceremony for farm bill

President Trump on Thursday afternoon will participate in a signing ceremony for the farm bill, the Agriculture Improvement Act. 

The event is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. EST.

The signing comes as Trump told the House he would not sign a stopgap spending bill passed by the Senate Wednesday night, a decision that significantly increases the risk of a government shutdown.
