  • Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, held a joint press conference on Thursday evening.
  • “President Trump is throwing a temper tantrum and creating a Trump shutdown,” Schumer said.
  • A partial government shutdown is looming — nine federal agencies may not be funded going in to the holidays — if a funding bill is not passed by the end of Friday.
  • The conference came shortly after Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis submitted his letter of resignation over the president’s decision to pull US troops out of Syria.
  • Trump signaled this morning that he won’t sign a bill if it does not include roughly $5 billion in funding for a wall at the southern border.
  • On Thursday night, the House of Representatives passed a stopgap bill that includes $5.7 billion in funding for the border wall. It’s unlikely to pass the Senate.

Democratic leaders, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, held a joint press conference on Thursday evening, following the announcement of Secretary of Defense James Mattis’ resignation.

During the conference, Schumer and Pelosi discussed a looming government shutdown and Mattis leaving the administration.
