President Trump likely to sign deal that doesn't include wall funding

From NBC News:

NBC NEWS - President Donald Trump is likely to sign a bipartisan agreement to keep the government open and avoid another partial shutdown, three people familiar with the president’s thinking tell NBC News.

The two Republicans who have spoken with the president and an administration official close to the process caution that nothing is set in stone, noting that the legislative text has not been finalized and no one has seen the bill itself.

That said, Trump is likely to greenlight the agreement “barring any drafting surprises or last-minute additions by Democrats," one of the officials said. The president is also likely to take executive action to redirect federal money to boost funding levels for a border barrier past what Congress has approved, two officials said.
