Trump marks one-year anniversary with shutdown

Trump marks one-year anniversary with shutdown

It's the kind of thing you see on West Wing political dramas - hushed voices in corridors, numbers counted and re-counted, backroom negotiations and deals.

On Saturday, Mr Schumer suggested: "Negotiating with President Trump is like negotiating with jello".

Republicans are calling the current standoff the "Schumer Shutdown, " arguing that there's nothing in the bill that Democrats oppose, while a short-term extension would give lawmakers time to work out differences on young immigrants and disaster assistance.

Tea party Republicans, in a strategy not unlike the one Schumer is employing now, sought to use a must-pass budget bill to try to force President Barack Obama to delay implementation of his health care law. North Korea has repeatedly threatened to strike the United States with a nuclear weapon in recent months, and the United States saw several terror attacks last year.

Both parties are wagering that voters will punish the other at the ballot box in November.

The legislation would have provided a fiscal rescue package to keep funding the government until 16 February which means currently the government has run out of money. Over the past few weeks, he has expressed openness to extending the DACA program, but then rejected a bipartisan plan on that front.

A deal looked possible on Friday afternoon, when Mr Trump seemed to be close to an agreement with Democratic Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer on protecting Dreamers but no compromise was reached. The Social Security Administration will not only send out benefits but will also continue to take applications - though replacements for lost Social Security cards could have to wait. The House had planned to recess later on Friday for a weeklong break but members were warned they could be called back for votes. Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, however, objected to the approval of a continuing series of temporary spending bills, saying such a practice "simply kicks the can down the road and fails to get the job done for the American people".

After the Senate failed to pass a funding bill Friday night, the federal government is now in a partial shutdown.

Democrats want a decision to be made on DACA, but Republicans think it shouldn't be tied to a spending deal.

"I'm looking for something that President Trump supports", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republican from Kentucky, told reporters on Wednesday, just two days away from the shutdown deadline.

McConnell said he would seek over the weekend a new funding bill that covered the federal government through to Feb. 8.

The impact of the shutdown would be felt acutely if it lasts into the coming work week.

Still, officials said the president has been working the phones trying to avert a shutdown. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said President Trump's grade for his first year in office was a "big fat failure F".

"We cannot open the government without Senate Democrat support", Mulvaney told Tapper. The idea was to find some common ground.

McConnell and Schumer had not spoken to each other in more than 24 hours, Schumer's spokesman Matt House said Sunday morning.

After all, for most people, the most important criterion for an effective political system is how it helps to resolve their problems, not telling them whom to blame.

They were happy to embrace this power when pushing legislation like billionaire tax cuts and repeal of Obamacare.

Most staff in the departments of housing, environment, education and commerce will be staying at home on Monday.

Speaking to US troops in the Middle East, Vice-President Mike Pence reiterated his party's stance.

"Shutdown coming?" Trump tweeted as the day began, seeming to revel in the chaotic, high-stakes brinksmanship unfolding both on Capitol Hill and at the White House, where he summoned Schumer. "Republicans' total inability to govern is once again threatening our economy, weakening communities, and dangerously depriving the military of the certainty they need to keep our nation safe".
