Trump hits out as US government shuts down over failed budget talks

Eleven hours after the government shutdown Friday at midnight, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said his members would accept such a deal, which is different from the bill the House passed earlier this week, which would keep the government funded until February 16.

Despite urging from his doctor to shape up his diet, President Donald Trump broke out the cheeseburgers for a White House confab with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday afternoon, according to the New York Times.

Though federal shutdowns have become a depressingly familiar ritual of American politics, the current one was born of a newer, more toxic dynamic - one in which the old partisan arguments about the size and role of government have been supplanted by a tribal battle over what it means to be an American.

Also on Saturday, Trump's presidential campaign released a strongly worded video ad that said regarding the president's efforts to stem illegal immigration, "Democrats who stand in our way will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants".

Republicans controlling the narrowly split chamber argue that it's the Democrats who are holding the government hostage over demands to protect 'dreamer' immigrants brought to the country as children and now here illegally.

The Salem Democrat also shared that after the vote failed to pass, he was approached by a janitor collecting trash in the congressman's office, asking if a shutdown had been averted.

Don't worry, all animals at the zoo will continue to be fed, but the live broadcasts of the animals, including the popular Panda Cam, will cease. The senator assembled enough Democratic opposition to kill the House-passed bill.

The invitation came as a surprise to many of Trump's aides.

This isn't to say Trump is the only one who will get blamed for this shutdown.

"The president can't make a deal and congressional Republicans won't", Schumer said.

"Most of the energy on both sides Saturday was devoted to key players either branding the impasse either the "Trump shutdown" or the" Schumer shutdown".

Trump postponed his weekend getaway to Mar-a-Lago as the livelihoods of federal workers hung in the balance.

Both parties said they would re-start negotiations and the Senate is set to come back into session at 12pm on Saturday. Lawmakers are struggling to reach a deal on immigration and spending levels. Only Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly, and Schumer's chief of staff were in the room with the senator and the president.

"This guy is incredibly efficient at failing", added House of Cards creator Beau Willimon.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a scathing statement blaming Senate Democrats for forcing a government shutdown early Saturday morning.

"I think the president's been very clear: He's not leaving until this is finished", he said.

A weekly recap of the top political stories from The Globe, sent right to your email. "We need more Republican victories in 2018!"

Republicans have a tenuous one-seat majority in the Senate but would have needed to lure some Democrats to their side to get a 60 vote supermajority to bring the motion forward.

Until then, Schumer and McConnell had avoided direct talks on Friday. Republicans have spent the past few days casting Democrats as the villains.

We'll be debating all this on Sunday night on "The Next Revolution" at 9 p.m. EST on FNC. Standing outside the Capitol, Schumer was intercepted by a phalanx of reporters and cameras. "No enemy in the field has done more to harm the readiness of the U.S. military than the combined effect of the Budget Control Act's defense spending caps, and nine of the last 10 years operating under continuing resolutions". Republicans and Democrats have not been able to agree on spending levels for the rest of the year, so another short-term measure is the most likely solution.
