President Trump has phoned the Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, in order to invite him to talks related to a controversial funding bill. If a solution to the proposed bill is not found, the government will likely be shutdown.
This comes after talks between the Republicans and Democrats broke down completely, preventing progress on the aforementioned bill to continue.
The funding bill is related to dealing with the problem that arose after the destruction of the Obama-era ‘Dreamers’ policy. More than 700,000 young immigrants who entered the country under the Dreamers act currently await deportation now that the act has been abolished.
