Clip: 01/02/2019 | 5m 1s

The White House director of strategic communications says President Trump proposed a plan to Democrats to fund a southern border wall and resolve the partial government shutdown, but they "refused to negotiate." A Wednesday meeting hasn't yet led to a solution. Mercedes Schlapp speaks to Judy Woodruff about the funding number the president will accept and why a “physical barrier” is necessary now.
