President Trump has invited lawmakers to return to the White House on Friday, after leadership races, to continue discussing a path to reopening the government.
Several congressional leaders met with Trump today.
"He asked us to come back on Friday after the leadership races," said Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy following a meeting on border security in the White House Situation Room.
McCarthy said Democrats in the meeting — including Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi — did not appear interested in listening to Homeland Security Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen.
"They really didn't want to hear it," McCarthy said.
