Vice President Pence vowed Thursday that President Trump would not back any deal to reopen the government without money for his proposed border wall, a sign the government shutdown will likely be headed into its fourth week this weekend.

“Walls work. … It’s not a debatable point,” Pence said during a 45-minute press briefing in the Capitol with two dozen reporters. “No wall, no deal. Because walls work.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The vice president, flanked by White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway and Acting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Russ Vought, also said that Trump believes he has an “absolute right” to declare a national emergency at the border — a move that would allow him to shift military construction money from the Pentagon to help pay for Trump’s border wall without congressional approval.

After his meeting with reporters on border security, Vice-President Pence took time to chat with a group of visitors in the Capitol Rotunda, two reporters stated on Twitter.  The tourists just happened to be in the right place at the right time, Natalie Andrews stated.

Another issue developed, when Pence’s motorcade prevented Bernie Sanders from backing up his car outside the Capitol, but that was eventually worked out!
