President Trump says the latest meeting on ending the partial government shutdown was very productive. After a White House summit with congressional leaders today, Trump noted some progress, but the shutdown is continuing. He said everyone is on the same path on the need to re-open the government. One-quarter of the government ran out of money on December 22nd. Trump is demanding several billion dollars to help construct a massive border wall. Democrats continue to reject that demand.
