(FOX NEWS) – President Trump will speak in the Rose Garden about the partial government shutdown at 1:30 p.m ET on Friday — an indication that a possible short-term deal may have been reached to end the stalemate, even as reports emerged that there is no funding for a border wall in the deal.
“The President will make remarks regarding the shutdown in the Rose Garden today at 1:30pm,” Sanders tweeted. It was not immediately clear what Trump would say, but White House officials told Fox News that the situation was still in flux.
Meanwhile, another well-placed source told Fox News that negotiators were close on a continuing resolution to fund the government through February 15th with no funding for the wall. It would mark a significant win for House Democrats, despite Trump saying Republicans would not “cave” just a day earlier.
The shutdown was sparked by disagreement over President Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion in funding for a wall or steel barrier on the southern border.
Democrats countered initially with $1.3 billion for general border security, while Trump said initially he would not sign anything without wall funding.
