Newly elected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Trump are expected to meet on border security, to help end the partial government shutdown.
The two will meet Friday at the White House joined by other congressional leaders, after House Democrats passed a provisional spending package which did not include funding for the border wall.
The president has vowed not to sign any legislation which does not include the more than $5 billion he has demanded for the project.
She also recently revealed she will step down as speaker after four more years in the position.
