WATCH: Sean Spicer holds White House press briefing as potential government shutdown looms


Update: This event has ended.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer addressed the press corps Monday afternoon at the White House as a potential government shutdown looms.

President Donald Trump has called for requirements including funding for the U.S.-Mexico border wall and increased military spending only a few days ahead of the deadline.

Current federal government funding is scheduled run out Friday night, and if the proposed funding plan is not passed, parts of the government will be forced to shutdown.

Democrats have said they will oppose any spending bill that includes Trump's border wall, and Senate Republicans will need Democratic votes to pass the funding bill.

The president doubled down on his push for the border wall on Twitter Monday, saying the wall is needed for "stopping drugs from pouring into our country."

Spicer addressed the media at 1:30 p.m. EDT.
