POTUS Donald Trump, who put the odds of reaching a deal with Democrats to keep the government open beyond the current 21-day spending bill at “50-50,” said Wednesday that if a bipartisan conference of lawmakers aren’t going to add in border wall funding as part of any package, they’re “wasting their time.”

“If the committee of Republicans and Democrats now meeting on Border Security is not discussing or contemplating a Wall or Physical Barrier, they are Wasting their time!” he tweeted.

The bipartisan committee of 17 appropriations committee members includes a mix of Senators and members of the House of Representatives. It isn’t clear if wall funding has been a part of the ongoing discussions.
