House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. accused Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. of not being “serious” in negotiations to end the partial government shutdown.
His comments came during a Friday interview on TV’s “Fox & Friends.”
"When you look at the vote yesterday for Speaker, you realize why Nancy has not been serious on any offer," McCarthy said. "That was a very close vote for Speaker. She had to have all the members that voted against her, then a number of members who had to abstain, to lower the threshold so she could become Speaker."
And he added: "Now, we have another meeting at the White House today," "I hope (Democrats) come back with a serious offer this time.”
“We need border security and that’s why we’re standing with this president.”
Trump and congressional leaders are scheduled to meet again on Friday to discuss how to end the partial governmental shutdown.
