Federal Shutdown Begins as Lawmakers Fail to Make a Deal
The federal government has partially shut down amid a stand-off between President Trump and Congress over border wall funding.
White House negotiators left the Capitol late Friday, and the House and Senate adjourned without a spending deal.
Trump’s top envoys were straining to broker a last-minute compromise with Democrats and some of their own Republican Party’s lawmakers. But Vice President Mike Pence, incoming White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, and senior adviser Jared Kushner departed after hours spent dashing back and forth, with no outward signs of an agreement.
