McConnell: U.S. Senate will only consider shutdown-ending bills Trump would sign


WASHINGTON, Jan 3 (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday laid out the terms for taking up legislation to end the current government shutdown, saying his Republican-dominated chamber would not consider any bill President Donald Trump would refuse to sign.

"Let me say it again: The Senate will not take up any proposal that does not have a real chance of passing this chamber and getting a presidential signature," McConnell said on the Senate floor.
