Shutdown talk recedes after White House eases wall threat

 

December 19, 2018



WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump and leaders in Congress appeared to be pulling back Tuesday from a government shutdown over his $5 billion request for border wall funds, with the first signs of movement toward a possible end to the standoff.

The White House set the tone early when Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders indicated Trump — who just last week said he'd be "proud" to shut down the government — doesn't want to after all. The president would consider other options and the administration was looking at ways to find the funding elsewhere, Sanders said.
