WASHINGTON (Jan 2): President Donald Trump invited the top congressional leaders from both parties to a White House briefing on border security Wednesday and suggested he wants to “make a deal” to end the government shutdown.

It’s the first sign of a possible opening for negotiations to break the stalemate that’s had parts of the government shut for 11 days. Congressional aides said the offer was extended to the eight top leaders from both parties in the new House and Senate that convenes on Thursday and will include a briefing by Homeland Security officials.

Democratic leaders haven’t publicly said whether they’ll accept the invitation.
