The Hill reports, “the Senate GOP leader didn’t explain his objection from the Senate floor but he has warned for weeks that he will not bring up a government funding bill unless it’s the product of an agreement between congressional Democratic leadership and President Trump.”

After McConnell turned down another House-passed bill on Tuesday, he stated that it would be pointless to approve a vote on any spending bill that does not have support from President Trump.

“In a situation like this where the president in my view is in the right place trying to get the right outcome… of course not,” McConnell told a  reporter when asked if he would try to reopen the government with a veto override.
