President Donald Trump and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., have not spoken since their tumultuous White House meeting last week, The Hill reports.
Trump met with congressional leaders including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Schumer last Wednesday, and walked out of the meeting, calling it a "waste of time."
Schumer said he will meet with Trump "anytime he wants."
"As you know, the last I spoke with him was when he walked out, threw a temper tantrum and walked out, so we haven't heard from him since then," he told reporters.
The partial government shutdown entered its 25th day with no end in sight, making it the longest in history. About 800,000 federal employees have been either furloughed or are working without pay.
Trump is demanding $5.7 billion in funding for his border wall, but Democrats will not agree to the amount. Both sides will not budge.
A new bipartisan group of U.S. senators is searching for an agreement that could help end the shutdown, which began Dec. 22 and has shuttered key agencies, including the IRS.
Trump on Monday said, "Only a Wall, or Steel Barrier, will keep our Country safe! Stop playing political games and end the Shutdown!"
