Trump Lashes Out After Democrats Reject Offer To End Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — Thirty-one days into the partial government shutdown, Democrats and Republicans appeared no closer to ending the impasse than when it began, with President Donald Trump lashing out at his opponents after they dismissed a plan he’d billed as a compromise. Trump on Sunday branded House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a “radical” and said she was acting “irrationally.” The president also tried to fend off criticism from the right, as conservatives accused him of embracing “amnesty” for immig...

Trump and Pelosi again butt heads but others see possible paths

US President Donald Trump bitterly attacked top Democrat Nancy Pelosi on Sunday and she again insisted that he end the government shutdown before border security talks can begin, but there were hints of possible movement. Trump lashed out on Twitter a day after Pelosi, speaker of the House of Representatives, dismissed as a "non-starter" his offer to extend temporary protection to about a million immigrants in return for $5.7 billion for the wall he wants on the Mexican border to fulfill a sig...

Chris Wallace Presses Pence: ‘You Could Open The Government Tomorrow!’

Vice President Mike Pence stumbled briefly during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” after host Chris Wallace pressed him on the fact that Republicans could immediately reopen government, if they wanted, without funds for President Donald Trump’s desired border wall. The 30-day partial government shutdown is the longest in United States history, with 800,000 federal employees either working, or not working, without receiving pay checks. “You could open the government tomorrow,” Wallace told P...

Did Trump just threaten Pelosi with a "big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally"?

No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer. It is a 3 year extension of DACA. Amnesty will be used only on a much bigger deal, whether on immigration or something else. Likewise there will be no big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally-but be careful Nancy!— Donald J.

Trump Offers Dems Temporary Immigration Sweeteners In Exchange For Wall Money

President Donald Trump on Saturday offered temporary support for some immigration policies favored by Democrats on the condition that Congress would appropriate $5.7 billion in border wall money and line up behind other priorities of his. Ahead of the announcement, many Democrats responded with a similar refrain: First, open the government, which is in the 29th day of a record-breaking partial shutdown. In an address from the White House, Trump went through a proposal he called “a commonsense...

House Speaker Pelosi rejects Trump plan to reopen government

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Saturday said an upcoming proposal by President Donald Trump to provide temporary protections for some undocumented immigrants in return for building a wall on the southwestern border with Mexico was "unacceptable." Trump's plan also does not "represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people's lives" and is unlikely to pass either the House or Senate, Pelosi, a Democrat, said in a statement.

"President Trump plans to use remarks from the Diplomatic Reception Room on Saturday afternoon to propose a notable immigration compromise, according to sources familiar with the speech."

"The offer is expected to include Trump’s $5.7 billion demand for wall money in exchange for the BRIDGE Act — which would extend protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) — and also legislation to extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, according to a source with direct knowledge.... Advocates for the plan argue that by offering the new proposal, Trump is showing he’s willing to negotiate while Pelosi remains unmoved. But even some top Republican...
