President Donald Trump, Mr. Hoyer, Elisa Jaffe discussed on Afternoon News with Tom Glasgow and Elisa Jaffe

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

With Elisa Jaffe, I'm Tom Glasgow. Jeremy grater is at the editor's desk. It's good to have you with us on this Thursday afternoon. President Donald Trump congratulating Democrat Nancy Pelosi hours after she was sworn in as house speaker Trump telling reporters during a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room that Pelosi's ascension is a tremendous tremendous achievement. And the new speaker of the house is speaking right now. And we are making an effort to join the tens of the president of the United States separate from that. We are sending what the Senate set also passed which is a Bill to extend to have a continuing resolution until February eighth taking their exact date from the Senate that would cover homeland security. Give us the weeks needed to negotiate an agreement to open up government in that department. Again, we've taken worse for word, and I'm going to yield any woman after Mr. Hoyer to our distinguished chair of the appropriations committee to demonstrate how purely Republican senatorial. These measures were so we've separated out there to boats one on the eight departments of government that could be open now to meet the needs of the American people to meet the needs of the American people to protect our borders, and and to protect our workers. And again, the other Bill is mostly about protecting our border. So and that's spirit. I wanna yell try distinguished democratic leader of the house. Mr. Hoyer to talk about the need for us to open up government. Thank you very much. Congratulations..

Coming up next
