Joint Statement From Leaders Schumer And Pelosi Ahead Of White House Meeting

December 10, 2018

Washington, DC – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) today released the following statement ahead of their meeting at the White House:

“Republicans still control the House, the Senate, and the White House, and they have the power to keep government open. Our country cannot afford a Trump Shutdown,  especially at this time of economic uncertainty.  This holiday season, the president knows full well that his wall proposal does not have the votes to pass the House and Senate, and should not be an obstacle to a bipartisan agreement.”
