Hillary Clinton: 'Americans Can't Afford Another Day' of Government Shutdown

Hillary Clinton: 'Americans Can't Afford Another Day' of Government Shutdown

However, the Democratic leader of the US House of Representatives said the ball was in Mr Trump's court. One powerful Republican ally, Senator Lindsey Graham, tweeted after talks with Trump: "Mr. President, Declare a national emergency NOW".

President Donald Trump might not be able to make a deal with dug-in Democrats, but he has a winning formula for 2020, regardless, against Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., according to Newt Gingrich.

As an estimated 800,000 United States federal employees are reportedly starting to feel the pinch of the longest government shutdown in history, calls for the president's impeachment have started to increasingly arrive, with a number of TV channels opting to prioritize the subject over others, in an attempt to promote their agenda.

Trump sees the declaration of an emergency as a last resort and still hopes to make a deal with Democrats to reopen the federal government, Graham said, adding that he spoke to Trump earlier in the day. "If we can't at the end of three weeks, all bets are off".

Amid the unending shutdown, the President has started increasingly talking about the possibility of declaring a national emergency in an effort to circumvent Congress to obtain the funding he wants for a border wall - a move that would be expected to face legal challenge and forceful pushback from Democratic lawmakers. "I want to see this wall get built, so I want to keep pressure on Democrats to actually come to the negotiating table in good faith and fund what they've supported in the past". The president initially sounded as though such a move was imminent, but then pulled back. "But I'm not going to do it so fast because this is something Congress should do".

Democrats have been calling on Trump and Senate Republicans to allow a vote on a short-term bill that would open the government, giving the two sides more time for talks. Democrats reject that characterization and continue to prepare a response to an emergency declaration that would involve recourse to the courts.

Johnson also accused Democrats of minimizing what he called a "crisis" at a border.

Meantime, a separate poll by CNN showed Trump's disapproval rating among Americans had climbed by five points - to 57 percent - in just a month, with just 37 percent approving.

"This (Shafi) story has gained national attention and has put the party in a bad light, all thanks to the actions of a few". He also asserted that he supports the USA courts and systems of law and that he has never promoted Sharia law.

Trump has told advisers he believes the fight for the wall - even if it never yields the requested funding - is a political win for him.

Trump has maintained that the border can not be secured without a wall. But Trump said he wants to give Congress a chance to negotiate a deal.

Radha Muthiah, head of Capital Area Food Bank, said dozens of volunteers were working to pack bags of food for affected staff. While a wall is not necessary along our entire southern border, our border agents need more resources and funding for advanced technology to assist them in apprehending those attempting to cross over illegally.

Trump, holed up in the White House with Congress adjourned for the weekend, warned of a much lengthier impasse and blamed the Democrats.

Democrats say Trump shut the government in a "temper tantrum" by refusing to sign bipartisan funding legislation previous year that did not include money for his wall.

Another Twitter user, Cat Heifner, shared what she said was her brother's payslip, showing he had been paid one cent for his work as an air traffic controller.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., a lawmaker with a close relationship with the president, discounted that option, saying it was not "under very serious consideration".

As of Friday night, only Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was scheduled to appear on TV Sunday.
