(Worthy News) - The federal government remains in partial shut down after Congress and President Donald Trump failed to reach an agreement on $5 billion in spending for his border wall.

Vice President Mike Pence went to Capitol Hill Saturday to take a counter-offer to Democrats, while President Trump met with Republican lawmakers over lunch. Some told the president to fight for the wall. Others told him to reopen the government.

The Senate and the House also met on Saturday for a rare weekend session, but adjourned until Christmas Eve, and will not be back for a full session until Thursday. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
