Trump says he has no idea whether he can get a deal
Reading Time: 1 minute

A partial government shutdown in the United States over President Donald Trump’s demand for $5.7bn to build a wall along the US-Mexico border has entered a record 22nd day.

Trump, holed up in the White House with Congress adjourned for the weekend, warned of a much lengthier impasse and blamed the Democrats, as Saturday marked the longest shuttering of federal agencies in the US history.

The president said he had “no idea” whether he can get a deal with House speaker Nancy Pelosi, in an interview with Fox News on Saturday.
