WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called President Donald Trump on Wednesday to try to reconcile the different congressional approaches to border aid funding, a Senate Democratic aide said.

Trump told reporters he believed Pelosi “wants to get something done” and he was optimistic about a congressional solution to the legislation.
