Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he has no plans to shut down the government over President Donald Trump's push for border wall funds.

Instead, the GOP leader says the Senate would be finishing up a package of budget bills this week as Congress makes progress toward funding the government for the new fiscal year that begins Oct. 1.

McConnell says the Senate is taking steps toward "funding the government in a timely and orderly manner."

Trump has reignited his fight with Congress over funding for a Southern border wall with Mexico.

Last week, McConnell said on a radio show in his home state of Kentucky that a government shutdown is "not going to happen."
