Meadows: Trump “Very Firm” On Continuing Shutdown

CNN reports:

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies, on Wednesday described Trump’s resolve to hold out for $5 billion in border wall funding as “very firm” as the partial government shutdown entered its fifth day.

Having spoken to the President since Saturday, the North Carolina Republican described Democrats as “misreading” Trump if they thought he would compromise on funding for the wall.

“I can tell you, if they believe this President is going to yield on this particular issue, they’re misreading him, misreading the American people,” Meadows told CNN’s Manu Raju on “Inside Politics.”
