WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump will meet a group of Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday to discuss ways to get him funding to build a border wall while avoiding a government shutdown, the White House said.

The meeting is scheduled for noon EST.

“The president is having a meeting with Republican House Members at noon today. At this moment, the president does not want to go further without border security, which includes steel slats or a wall. The president is continuing to weigh his options," said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.
