Nancy Pelosi: House Democrats won't support two-week spending extension

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday that House Democrats will not support a bill to keep the government open for two more week when it comes to the floor on Thursday, citing the lack of Democratic priorities in the bill.

She pointed to a poster showing Democratic priorities, and noted that none of those are included in a two-week continuing resolution Republicans hope to pass today.

"Either they have the votes or they don't have the votes today," Pelosi said.

"We will not leave here without a DACA fix," Pelosi said.

Pelosi, along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., are set to meet with President Trump at the White House a week and a half after Pelosi and Schumer ditched a planned meeting with the president to discuss spending.
