Trump will meet with congressional leaders at the White House on January 9
US President Donald Trump said during a televised address to the nation that he invited the leaders of the American Congress to the White House on Wednesday, January 9, to resolve the security problem on the southern border of the country.
“The only solution (of the crisis on the border. - RT ) would be the Democratic approval of a law that would protect our borders and restore the work of the government. This situation can be resolved at a meeting in 45 minutes. I invited congressional leaders tomorrow to do this, ”he specified.
On December 22, in the United States, there was a partial suspension of the work of the federal government, since the Democrats and Republicans could not agree on a budget.
Trump demands to allocate more than $ 5 billion to build a wall on the border with Mexico, but the Democrats, who received a majority in the House of Representatives after the mid-term elections in November 2018, oppose this.
