Trump kicks off 2020 campaign season amid shutdown negotiations

President Donald Trump kickoffs the 2020 campaign season Monday in the border city of El Paso, Texas, which comes during an impasse on Capitol Hill to avoid a second government shutdown this year over border security.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Donald Trump intends to sign the border security deal to avoid another partial government shutdown, according to two sources who have spoke directly with the President.

Trump said Tuesday that he was "not happy" with the tentative deal reached by congressional negotiators late Monday night that falls far short of his original demands.

Congress faces a deadline to get a deal passed and signed by Trump before Friday.
