Trump says government workers hurt by shutdown can "make adjustments"

  • New Democratic congresswoman Rashida Tlaib makes profane vow about Trump

On Sunday, Trump threatened again to declare a national emergency to build the wall along the U.S. Mexico border if he could not reach a deal with Democratic congressional leaders.

All that remains part of the party portfolio just as 2020 presidential-election campaigning gets underway, but the shutdown adds an important new element: the notion that the President's refusal to compromise - including his threat to get his way by claiming special powers by declaring a national emergency - is inflaming the situation.

The Democrats have sought "further details in writing on needs of DHS", the readout said referring to the Department of Homeland Security that has oversight over border security, and whose top official, Kirstjen Nielsen made a presentation for the negotiators that she have been make to lawmaker themselves during a meeting earlier in the Situation Room of the White House.

As the United States government shutdown continued hanging in the air, President Trump in a tweet said the Democrats want to impeach him because they can't win the next U.S. elections.

House Democrats plan to pass a series of bills this week to reopen government, breaking up legislation they have already approved in a bid to get Republicans to agree to reopen certain agencies, Hoyer said on "Meet the Press".

The president said that a wall or a barrier must be built along the USA southern border with Mexico, while signaling a willingness to accept a steel barrier instead of a concrete wall by saying that "steel instead of concrete is fine".

The Samsung Galaxy S10, which is expected to be launched this year, opted for the camera hole design instead of the notch. Blass also revealed other details about the Samsung Galaxy S10 including its internal codename "Beyond 1".

Showing little empathy for the hundreds of thousands of federal workers furloughed or working without pay, Trump declared - without citing evidence - that most are Democrats.

Democrats have signalled they could accept a deal that precluded a concrete wall but provided funding for a steel barrier. Democrats familiar with the meeting said the White House position was "untenable".

The president later tweeted that he planned to go to his retreat at Camp David, Maryland, on Sunday morning to discuss borders security and other topics with senior staff in a meeting separate from the negotiations.

"They only want to impeach me because they know they can't win in 2020", the president said, adding,"As I have stated many times, if the Democrats take over the House or Senate, there will be disruption to the financial markets".

"It has to be a bipartisan process", Schiff said on CNN's State of the Union.

On Friday, the President said that he was willing to allow the shutdown to last "months or even years" if funding is not allotted for a border wall.

Elizabeth Warren Chugs Beer on Instagram in Desperate Bid for Authenticity
Elizabeth Warren pledged her salary to HIAS, the Jewish immigration advocacy group, as long as the government is shut down. Progressives who wanted to draft Warren to run for president in 2016 kicked off their campaign in the state.

The measure did not include the $5.6 billion the president has demanded for the border wall.

Trump said on Friday he "may" attempt to invoke emergency powers to build the wall, although such a move would be expected to face legal action.

"Are you recalibrating your assessment of how you can work with this president?" "He's not building a wall anymore, ' that should help us move in the right direction", Mulvaney, who is also the head of the Office of Management and Budget, said.

With his negotiators preparing for the afternoon session, Trump said he didn't expect it to produce a resolution.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says House Democrats intend to start passing individual bills to reopen agencies.

"If he has to give up a concrete wall, replace it with a steel fence in order to do that so that Democrats can say, 'See?"
