Speaking with ABC News' Powerhouse Politics podcast, President Donald Trump's director of legislative affairs, Marc Short, batted down the prospect of a government shutdown in the wake of a no-show by Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer at a planned meeting with the president and Republican leaders on Tuesday.
Short is confident the White House and Republicans in Congress will make progress on their priorities.
"I don't think there's going to be a shutdown," Short told ABC News' Jonathan Karl.
