Government shutdown: the latest

by Axios | 1.16.19

Today, a bipartisan group of senators drafted a letter to President Trump requesting that he support a short-term spending bill to reopen the government for three weeks while wall negotiations continue. Read the leaked draft here.

The big picture: It's not going to work. The White House reiterated that a short-term reopen was dead on arrival.

Today's headlines:

  1. 58% don't want a wall
  2. Pelosi calls for Trump to delay State of Union until shutdown ends
  3. USDA calls back 2,500 furloughed workers to help farmers affected by shutdown
