The government has remained partially shutdown for 28 days now, with really no end in sight. President Trump and congressional Democrats remain at an impasse over border security, with seemingly neither party willing to budge from their demands.
Trump is demanding $5 billion for a border wall while the Democrats in the House, led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, have refused to provide any funding for the barrier.
Trump’s announcement is expected to happen at 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
