Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT), one of the key negotiators of a funding deal that would prevent a shutdown on Friday, offered his response to President Donald Trump’s reaction to the deal.
Reacting to the deal announcement earlier, President Donald Trump said, “I can’t say I’m happy. I can’t say I’m thrilled.”
Leahy - Something - President - Anybody - Meetings
Leahy said, “We were not trying to pass something to thrill the president or anybody else. Every one of us had to give on it. We had meetings late until last night in my office I have in the Capitol.”
