House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Tuesday said Democrats gave into President Trump's request for a wall.
"You have to remember where [Speaker] Nancy Pelosi [(D-Calif.)] was - she who said no money for a wall. That's not the case," he said during an appearance on CNBC. "The Democrats have now agreed to more than 55 miles of new barrier being built."
Congressional negotiators announced they had come to an "agreement in principle" on a government funding deal on Monday evening. The measure is expected to include $1.375 billion to build a barrier along the border, the amount included in the fiscal 2018 bill.
