President Donald Trump’s administration wants money for a border wall in negotiations to avoid a government shutdown.

The Trump administration is gearing up for a fight to secure money for a border wall, more immigration enforcement officers and a bigger military, according to a Politico report citing White House and congressional officials.

But the fight could lead to a government shutdown next Friday, with almost uniform Democratic opposition to nearly all of the Trump administration’s spending proposals. Government spending expires Friday, right before the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency. Officials could also strike a one-week compromise, Politico writes, giving them more time for a broader agreement.
