Trump and congressional leaders set third meeting over shutdown

President Trump is slated to meet with Congressional leadership at the White House on Wednesday to continue discussions on reopening the government, GOP sources told The Hill on Tuesday.

Lawmakers are expected to gather with administration officials in the Situation Room as parties remain at an impasse over funding for President Trump's border wall, two leadership aides confirmed.

While recent talks have proven mostly unfruitful, with both sides digging into their respective positions, top Republicans said Democratic leaders have agreed to attend the meeting.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer's (D-Md.) offices did not immediately respond to The Hill's request for comment.
