Democratic and Republican negotiators will meet in a last-ditch effort to salvage faltering government funding talks. Negotiators have hoped to post-compromise legislation that funds the government and gives President Donald Trump new money for border security by Monday evening. If accomplished, the legislation will meet the House Democratic majority’s new rules and allow passage through the Senate by Friday evening, the new shutdown deadline. Nearly everyone on Capitol Hill and in the Trump administration wants to avoid a shutdown, though negotiators said they can’t rule one out given the partisan divisions over border security.
