While Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) remains dead set against new money for President Trump’s border wall, she’s also confident there will not be another government shutdown when the temporary funding runs out on Feb. 15, Politico reported.

During an interview with Politico on Wednesday evening, Pelosi said she doesn’t think Republican leaders in Congress will want to be dragged through the mud again after the month-long funding impasse. She told Politico she plans to support whatever plan comes out of bipartisan border security talks in coming days.

“There will not be another shutdown,” she told Politico. “I have a club that I started, it’s called the ‘Too Hot To Handle Club.’ And this is a too-hot-to-handle issue.”
