Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday warned that the American people don’t want to see a partial government shutdown and expressed hope it could be avoided hours after President Trump in a meeting with Democratic leaders said he was willing to shut down the government for tougher border security.
“I hope that’s not where we end up. I understand it was a rather spirited meeting,” McConnell told reporters when asked by reporters about Trump’s threat.
The article goes on to state the following:
McConnell later warned that forcing a shutdown would be a political mistake for either side in the battle over funding for a wall on Mexico’s border.
“One thing I think is pretty clear no matter who precipitates the government shutdown is the American people don’t like it,” he said.
McConnell, on Pres. Trump saying he’d take full responsibility for a shutdown: “I hope that’s not where we end up. I understand that it was a rather spirited meeting that we all watched, but I’d still like to see a smooth ending” – says he’s still hopeful for one
