(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump says he's ready to negotiate with Democrats to end the partial government shutdown, which is now entering its eleventh day.
"I'm here. I'm ready to go. It's very important," the president told Fox News in a phone interview. "A lot of people are looking to get their paycheck, and so I'm ready to go anytime they want."
The federal government has been partially shuttered since Dec. 22, with lawmakers unable to come to an agreement over Trump's demand for $5 billion in funding for a wall along America's southern border. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
