After meeting with President Trump at the White House Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan introduced a new short-term spending bill that includes a proposed $5.7 billion in funding for border security.

Why it matters: Trump said that he would not sign the funding bill that passed the Senate last night because it did not include the $5 billion he requested for a border wall. The new bill is unlikely to make it past the House, much less the Senate, indicating the government will not be funded in time to avoid Friday's partial shutdown deadline.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Thursday outside of the White House that President Trump informed House Republican leaders that he would not sign a short-term spending bill passed by the Senate "because of legitimate concerns about border security."

What's next: Ryan said the House would attempt to pass a bill with funding for Trump's border wall. It's unclear if the bill will garner enough support, suggesting the government may be heading for a partial shutdown Friday at midnight.
