Schumer: Trump could keep go't closed for yearsAfter a meeting with President Trump at the White House Friday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told reporters Trump had threatened to keep the government shut down for “months or even years.”

“We made a plea to the president once again: Don’t hold millions of Americans, hundreds of thousands of workers hostage. Open up the government and let's continue discussions,” Schumer said. “He resisted. In fact, he said he’d keep the government closed for a very long time, months or even years.”
