President Trump Rejects Proposal to Temporarily Reopen the Government

President Trump said on Monday that he has rejected a proposal by
Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina to temporarily reopen the
government in an effort to jump-start talks with Democratic lawmakers on
funding a border wall. Mr. Trump, advisers said, has refused to allow his acting chief of
staff, Mick Mulvaney, or anyone else negotiating on his behalf to
compromise on his demand for $5.7 billion in border wall funding. That
has led to awkward moments in front of congressional leaders.
