Trump Rejects Graham’s Plea to Reopen Government


Trump has primarily spoken about making entry into the US merit-based but claimed in a speech to the agriculture industry today that he would take care of their workers, too. We're not going to stand here and be blamed for this. See if we can get a deal. We don't want the wrong ones coming into our country. "I'd rather have the Supreme Court rule and then work with the Democrats on DACA".

Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort is one of at least 14 Trump associates who interacted with Russians during the campaign and transition.

Nine of 15 cabinet departments are closed, along with important agencies including NASA and the Food and Drug Administration.

On Monday, he did not equivocate and also attacked Comey and others in the FBI responsible for the investigation of possible coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential campaign. There is no substitute, ' he said.

President Donald Trump on Monday rejected the suggestion that he temporarily reopen government while negotiations continue on his proposed border wall, signaling no speedy resolution to the partial government shutdown now into a fourth week. Funding for the border wall remains the sticking point in passing budgets to reopen the government.

Trump on Monday slapped down a proposal from Sen.

The record-breaking Government shutdown in the U.S. is expected to continue for "quite awhile still", as President Donald Trump and the congressional Democrats go head-to-head over the $5.7 billion border wall.

In an interview with Fox News on Saturday, Mr Trump said he had "no idea" whether he can get a deal with House speaker Nancy Pelosi.

On Friday, Trump said he would not immediately take such action and on Monday said, "This is so simple you shouldn't have to. Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!" I don't want to just delay it.

Prior to the shutdown, Trump said he would be "proud to shut down the government for border security". The Democrats are everywhere but Washington as people await their pay.

He's been tweeting all weekend how he has been waiting in the White House for Democrats to show up at his door.

Congress returns to business Monday, although Trump ridiculed 30 Democratic lawmakers for flying over the weekend to Puerto Rico, the sunny USA island territory in the Caribbean, for a charity performance of the hit Broadway show "Hamilton", while he remained in snowy Washington. Farmers have supported Trump through a trade war with China that cost them billions, but they are complaining about the loss of loans, payments and other agricultural services because of the shutdown.

However, the poll shows that many have an extremely negative view about the shutdown, with 53 percent of the respondents viewing Trump as being responsible. "I know it's not Puerto Rico", Conway said outside the White House, but perhaps Democrats can come back to Washington to negotiate.

Over the last 24 hours, Trump has privately touted a Washington Post-ABC News poll indicating that public support for a border wall has increased to 42 per cent from 34 per cent previous year, a source familiar with his comments told CNN. We can't have that. And the Democrats don't want to do anything about it'. He has demanded $5.7 billion in wall funding. By more than 2-1 (66 per cent to 31 per cent), Americans say they oppose invoking an emergency to build a border wall.

Latest tweets:"The Trump portrait of an unsustainable Border Crisis is dead on".

Trump indicated he was slowing what had appeared to be momentum toward the national emergency declaration as the way out of the stalemate. "I have the absolute right", he said.

Trump claimed that Democrats 'are stopping us, and they're stopping a lot of great people from getting paid'. They polled 788 adults in January, and the majority of those polled were Democrats and independents. That automatically means a wall or a barrier'.
