House Democrats are “prepared to negotiate” with President Trump on border security, said incoming majority leader Rep. Steny Hoyer, but they don’t want the government, or the country, to be “penalized” in the meantime. Hoyer talks to Judy Woodruff about agreeing with the president on the end goal of border security, but not on how to achieve it.
