McConnell: No More Votes Until Trump and Democrats Reach An Agreement


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took the Senate floor Saturday afternoon and stated that there won't be any further government funding bill votes until the Democrats and Trump reach an agreement on border security. McConnell adjourned the Senate until Monday.

SEN. MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY): The Senate will next meet for a pro forma session on Monday, that’s the 24th. The next scheduled session day will be on the 27th of December.

As I said earlier, I am glad that productive discussions are continuing. When those negotiations produce a solution that is acceptable to all parties—which means 60 votes in the Senate, a majority in the House, and a presidential signature—at that point, we will take it up here on the Senate floor.

Senators will be notified when a vote is scheduled. In the meantime, negotiations will continue.
