Vice President Mike Pence says the partial government shutdown won't end unless lawmakers agree on including money for the border wall in the funding bill. A White House meeting between Democrats and Republicans is not resulting in any deal to end the government shutdown. The meeting ended quickly after beginning when President Trump walked out. He did so after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said he wouldn't get funding for a border wall even if he opened the government right away. Trump called the meeting a total waste of time.
