2 monthes ago   |   By Politico

White House officials are warning congressional Republicans not to expect an immediate end to the government shutdown even if President Donald Trump declares a national emergency at the southern border. The warning came during Trump's Thursday visit to the southern U.S. border, according to three sources with knowledge of those conversations.
