A actually 2019 budget agreement is probably going to be up to a face to face meeting Trump is gonna have with House Democratic leader Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Schumer shortly….
Negotiations over the seven remaining fiscal 2019 spending bills — Agriculture, Commerce-Justice-Science, Financial Services, Homeland Security, Interior-Environment, State-Foreign Operations and Transportation-HUD — were mostly on hold this week as lawmakers mourned the death of former President George H.W.

While the meeting has not been finalized, the trio was expected to reschedule after postponing a meeting originally planned for earlier this week.

Schumer said on the floor Thursday that Democrats have two proposals to keep the government fully funded beyond Dec. 21….
Despite the noise?
Donald Trump KNOWS he’s NEVER gonna get funding for his “wall’ on the border….
