She noted that a State of the Union address has never before...

Graham Urges Trump To Reopen Gov. Temporarily, Continue Wall Negotiations

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican lawmaker advising President Donald Trump said he is encouraging the president to reopen the government for several weeks to continue negotiating with Democrats over funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall before the president takes the more drastic step of declaring a national emergency. But that may be wishful thinking, given that Sen. Lindsey Graham also says Trump still wants to reach a deal for the wall before agreeing to reopen shuttered government department...

President Trump Has to Win the Border Security Fight

Opinion USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The one thing neither the liberal media nor the Democrats have taken into their calculations about the government shutdown is that President Trump has to win on the border security issue. He has no choice. If it takes six months, it will take six months. If it can be done next Monday, it will be done next Monday. As commander in chief, President Trump has said controlling the southern border is a genuine national security issue and that failure would mean Americ...

Trump Repeatedly Undermines Loyal Soldier Pence In The Shutdown Fight

WASHINGTON (AP) — Progress made, said one. Not so, said the other. We’ll meet again, said one. Waste of time, said the other.

The vice president has been one of the administration’s most visible emissaries during the shutdown fight, meeting with lawmakers, sitting for interviews and leading staff-level talks. But he’s been repeatedly — a...

Trump walks out of talks on ending government shutdown over border wall

"I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier?" Trump wrote on Twitter. Schumer told reporters outside the White House that Trump asked Pelosi if she would fund his wall. "She said no.

The Shutdown Has Brought ‘Chuck And Nancy’ Even Closer As Dems Stay Unified

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) go way back: the two have socialized and worked together since Pelosi first entered Congress in the late 1980s.

Networks Fact-Check Trump Speech After Criticism Of Decision To Air

NEW YORK (AP) — Television pundits moved swiftly to correct or challenge President Donald Trump following Tuesday’s Oval Office speech on the proposed border wall, after their networks were the target of an unusual debate over whether they should show him at all. “Just because you say it’s a crisis doesn’t necessarily make it one,” ABC White House correspondent Cecilia Vega said following the president’s address.

After More Failed Negotiations, Pelosi To Push Individual Bills To Reopen Agencies

WASHINGTON (AP) — With no weekend breakthrough to end a prolonged partial government shutdown, President Donald Trump is standing firm in his border wall funding demands and newly empowered House Democrats are planning to step up pressure on Trump and Republican lawmakers to reopen the government.
