For the past two years, Pelosi has repeatedly said she had initially meant to retire after the 2016 elections but made a decision to stay on and continue leading House Democrats after Trump's upset victory.
Pentagon spokesman Jamie Davis said that while the military doesn't now have plans to build portions of a border wall, "Congress has provided options under Title 10 U.S. Code that could permit the Department of Defense to fund border barrier projects, such as in support of counter drug operations or national emergencies".
Trump had repeatedly threatened a government shutdown over the $5 billion he is demanding for his proposed border.
"Leader McConnell says he doesn't want a shutdown, but he refuses to engage with the president to tell him what's transparently obvious to everyone else".
The move is a stark reversal from Vela's position in late November, when House Democrats voted overwhelmingly to nominate Pelosi as their pick for speaker. "Go tell the press.' So I am", she added to reporters.
Vice president Mike Pence sat next to Mr Trump with a stony face as he remained silent during the exchange.
A closed-door meeting between President Donald Trump and congressional leaders lasted barely 30 minutes Tuesday after a heated televised opening session "spiraled downwards", in the words of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.
The agreement would be retroactive, meaning that the three top Democrats - Pelosi, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and assistant Democratic leader Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) - would be entering their third terms in January 2019.

She said the president had responded that she should inform the press because it would be news to them.
The meeting had started in a civil manner, with Trump calling it a "great honor" to have Schumer and Pelosi present, in their first meeting since Democrats took control of the House of Representatives.
"It's done", Schumer said.
But a defence department said later: "To date, there is no plan to build sections of the wall". The new Congress is sworn in January 3, and Pelosi is nominated for her second stint as speaker of the House and second in the line of presidential succession.

In Ohio, Republicans still control both the governor's office and Legislature, but apparently that's not enough. The fights over how power is distributed in the MI and Wisconsin governments have roots in North Carolina.
