WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will not travel to Florida on Friday for Christmas if the government is headed toward a partial shutdown.
That's the word late Thursday from two of Trump's senior advisers.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at the White House that Trump "will not travel in a shutdown."
Policy adviser Stephen Miller also says Trump will stay at the White House absent an agreement with Congress to keep parts of the government open.
Trump told House Republican leaders earlier Thursday that he will not sign Senate-passed legislation to keep parts of the government operating through early February because the measure does not include $5 billion he has demanded to pay for a wall he promised to build on the border with Mexico.
