Late last night the Senate passed a stopgap spending bill that would keep the government funded until early February.
The measure now goes to the House where is likely to pass and then to the president’s desk for his signature.
But late this afternoon President Trump informed House Republicans that he refuses to sign the stopgap measure because lawmakers did not set aside $5 billion for his border wall construction.
That means lawmakers are now scrambling to come up with another solution to keep funds flowing to some government agencies after Friday’s shut down deadline passes.
