President Donald Trump has taken a step back from his demand that Democrats provide funding for his border wall project in exchange for continued Obamacare subsidies.
CNN's Jim Acosta tweeted that a White House official confirmed this, saying the president would be satisfied with "border security" funds.
Trump and his staff came out strong late last week, offering a dollar-for-dollar deal to avoid a government shutdown.
Securing that funding would have been a big legislative win for Trump, who's seeking to calculate the accomplishments of his first 100 days in office.
But Democrats haven't shown many signs of wanting to cut a deal; some of them argue it's Republicans who will bear the political damage from a potential shutdown.
