White House says it's up to Pelosi to end the government shutdown

White House says it's up to Pelosi to end the government shutdown

The two are the only freshmen from districts Trump won by double-digit margins who voted for Pelosi on Thursday. "I don't call it a shutdown".

Now over 800,000 federal employees are furloughed or working without pay due to the shutdown.

I know they want to do that very badly, and so do I. So, hopefully, we're going to have a lot of things that we can get done together.

"As Representatives, funding the federal government is one of our most important duties", House Appropriations Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-New York, said on the House floor during debate on the bills. "They called upon the beauty of our constitution, that our system of checks and balances that protects our democracy, remembering that the legislative branch is Article 1 - the first branch of government is co-equal to the presidency and to the judiciary".

President Trump said officials had apprehended 17,000 criminals trying to get across the border into America a year ago. "The House passed a 5.6 billion border security funding, and it's not just for a wall it's for border security, and now the Senate has to do its job", Conway said.

"I've made it clear on several occasions, and let me say it again: The Senate will not take up any proposal that does not have a real chance of passing this chamber and getting a presidential signature".

"Whatever you want to call it", Trump said as senior Democrats refuse to agree to any partial government shutdown-ending package that would specifically allocate funds for a "wall". However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said those measures are non-starters on his side of the Capitol without the president's support.

But on the other hand, there are clubs like "Phoenix" or "San Antonio", which only once in the "regular" played overtime. Bookmaker offices, as a rule, estimate the probability of a draw with coefficients from 10.00 to 15.00.

The President said he had been sitting in the Oval Office with the border patrol agents in a previously scheduled meeting and decided he wanted to "see the press" so the agents could "tell them about the importance of the wall". "And anybody who can read Donald Trump's mind may well eventually win some kind of Nobel prize", he said. "It won't work", Trump said.

Republican Senators Susan Collins and Cory Gardner, both of whom will face hard reelection campaigns in 2020, broke from the party and have announced their hope for a vote on these bills, according to The Washington Post. He then left without taking any questions. On Wednesday, Trump also rejected his own administration's offer to accept $2.5 billion for the wall.

Addressing reporters later, Trump confirmed his threat. Trump did so repeatedly during his campaign, describing a wall of pre-cast concrete sections that would be higher than the walls of many of his rally venues.

For a few hours, the promise of a new era was the order of the day. "Makes sense to me!", he tweeted on December 31.

Republican leaders immediately blasted the vote as a pointless political gimmick that would do little to provide the resources necessary to secure the border, and said Democrats were not negotiating in good faith.

Adding to national unease about the shutdown are economic jitters as analysts warn of the risks of closures that are disrupting government operations across multiple departments and agencies at a time of other uncertainties in the stock market and foreign trade.

Her first task will be to help end a partial federal government shutdown over Trump's insistence that lawmakers fund a US-Mexico border wall. A handful of Republicans broke ranks on each measure to vote "yes" with the Democrats. The White House has invited the leaders back Friday for another round of talks that officials have suggested might be more successful now that Pelosi has been sworn in. "I have never had so much support as I have over the last week over my stance for border security, for border control, and for, frankly, the wall or the barrier".
