At a joint press conference Thursday afternoon, likely Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) held a joint press conference Thursday evening to give an update on a looming government shutdown.
Schumer commented on President Trump's hope to secure border wall funding stating, "the Trump temper tantrum will shutdown the government, but it will not get him his wall."
"Today's events have made one thing clear, President Trump is plunging the country into chaos," Schumer stated. "The stock market's down another 500 points. General Mattis is stepping down and we know he has real disagreements with the president on Syria and on the wall. And now, President Trump is throwing a temper tantrum and creating the Trump shutdown of the government."
