Summary

Follow CNN politicsFrom CNN's Phil MattinglyA senior GOP aide involved in the spending talks was just asked about the President’s comments.“It’s not like there’s a Plan B right now," the aide said.The aide said there was some expectation the President would vent about the deal and noted he didn’t say he wouldn’t sign the agreement.Keep in mind: The desire to avoid a shutdown, at least at this moment, appears much stronger than any other factor for members and the expectation is that will win out.CNN's Manu Raju and Lauren Fox contributed reporting From CNN's Kevin LiptakPresident Trump said he wouldn't be the first if he decides to declare a national emergency to secure border wall funding:President Trump, speaking to reporters during a Cabinet meeting at the White House, said he doesn't expect another shutdown.He added, however, if there is one, it's the "Democrats' fault."Congressional negotiators say they have reached an agreement in principle to avert a partial government shutdown at the end of this week.It's unclear if Trump will sign the deal.President Trump, answering a reporter's question if he'd sign the newly reached border deal, said he wasn't happy with it."I'm not happy about it, it's not enough, it's not doing the trick," Trump said, before adding he would add "things to it," though didn't specify what. He added that he's “real optimistic” about this new deal.CNN then asked about the possibility that Trump could take executive action.Right after Jones spoke to reporters, Senator Manchin popped out and said he thinks Trump should sign the funding bill.
