Lawmakers Pressure Trump to Add Extension to Friday Budget Deadline

President Trump said he’ll likely agree to a request from congressional leaders to extend government funding for two weeks beyond Friday’s deadline due to the funeral this week of former President George H.W. Bush.

“If they come — which they have — to talk about an extension because of President Bush’s passing, I would absolutely consider it and probably give it,” Mr. Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One late Saturday night on his return to Washington from the G-20 summit in Argentina.

Trump told reporters just before the Midterms that he would “totally be willing” to shut down the federal government unless Congress authorized $5 billion to fund his long-promised wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.
