President trump made it official and announced he will not sign any bill unless it contains the border wall funding. This was announced by Rep. Paul Ryan in a press conference on Thursday afternoon.
Kevin McCarthy joined Paul Ryan in the announcement and he announced he felt optimistic a deal will be reached by the Friday deadline. But, if a deal is not reached it will mean a Government shutdown until a deal is reached.
Sarah Sanders released a statements about the GOP and Trump meeting where they all felt border security was a top issue.
It will be unlikely a deal will be reached by the dead line considering both Trump and the Democrats find a political advantage in a Government shutdown for the border wall. However, a way to help President Trump gain leverage against the Democrats is by donating to the Go Fund Me account for a wall that is now reached nearly $7 million since December 16. https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall
