The two have also strategized together in lengthy meetings before White House negotiations, and made a decision to deliver the rebuttal to President Donald Trump's Tuesday Oval Office address together.

"At the end of the day, the president's beloved border wall is the issue exclusively responsible for this irresponsible shutdown, and it is an absolute disgrace and a disservice to all Americans to allow this broken campaign promise to hold all of the key funding bills hostage", said Rep. Mike Quigley, Illinois Democrat.

"If the president, frustrated by Congress, could declare a national emergency and go around Congress, we would have seen this before", Napolitano explained.

Schumer said Trump "just used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration". And on "Fox and Friends", the judge stressed that a border wall would have to be funded by Congress whether Trump likes it or not.

"The Republican Party, I can say, we had an hour meeting, a great time".

Trump also claimed in his address that the "southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs" and that it was necessary to "stop the criminal gangs, drug smugglers and human traffickers".

LevinTV host Mark Levin blasted Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi as "pathological liars" Tuesday night on "Hannity", reacting to President Trump's Oval Office address on border security and the Democratic response. "I know he complained the time that you had cameras in the meeting".

"I don't like government shutdowns", said Sen.

"Steel fencing was fine, even salutary, when President Obama was in the White House", McConnell complained.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence met with Senate Republicans during their weekly luncheon after a handful of them said publicly that the president should compromise with congressional Democrats rather than hold firm to his demand for $5.7 billion for his proposed U.S. -Mexico border barrier. "I said bye-bye, nothing else works!" Three weeks into the shutdown, the strain was starting to show with hundreds of thousands of federal workers on track to miss paychecks this week.

As many as half a dozen GOP senators have said the government should reopen while border security negotiations with Democrats continue. "They've voted for border security".

She blamed Trump's "obsession with forcing American taxpayers to waste billions of dollars on an expensive and ineffective wall - a wall he always promised Mexico would pay for!" "And that was his reasoning for shutting down the government and insisting on the wall". "When Democrats talk about border security, we want to have solutions to the problems we actually have". Some say Trump's hardline policies are slowing processing for migrants, creating an overwhelming bottleneck at the border.

"Well, the president walked into the room and passed out candy".
