House Minority Whip Steve Scalise calls on Democrats in congress to come to the table to negotiate an end to the government shutdown.

During an interview on Sunday, the Louisiana congressman said the President has a detailed plan to end the shutdown and has offered several proposals to the Democrats.

He added the Democrats have not responded with offers of their own.

Scalise also addressed the possibility of President Trump declaring a national emergency in order to build a wall on the southern border.

Although he said the President has the authority to do this, he noted the ultimate plan is for congress to solve the border security problem.
