United States shutdown breaks all-time record

US President Donald Trump and others listen to a prayer during a meeting about border security in the Cabinet Room of the White House

President Donald Trump said yesterday he would not declare a national emergency "right now" to end a standoff over border security that has idled large swaths of the USA government, all but guaranteeing that he will preside over the longest shutdown in us history.

The South Carolina Republican added in the interview that he spoke with the president shortly before his television appearance and told him he would support an emergency declaration. She's telling the president, even if you open up the government, I'm not going to do a deal on the wall. Sixty-six percent of respondents, however, oppose Trump using emergency powers to get a border wall built-something he has floated during the shutdown. Separately, a CNN poll showed 56 percent of Americans oppose construction of Trump's hoped-for border wall.

"I do think if we reopen the government, if the president ends this shutdown crisis, we have folks who can negotiate a responsible, modern investment in technology that will actually make us safer", Coons said. The president initially sounded as though such a move was imminent, but then pulled back.

Opponents say that a unilateral presidential move would be constitutional overreach and set a unsafe precedent in similar controversies.

Ms Pirro pressed Mr Trump on why he had yet to declare a national emergency.

President Trump put the blame squarely on Democrats Sunday, saying on Twitter "Democrats are saying that DACA is not worth it and don't want to include it in talks".

While a national emergency would provide some legal framework for his administration to freely move funds toward construction of a barrier, it would nearly certainly face court challenges.

Senator Chris Coons, called Mr Graham's idea to reopen the government a "great place to start".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of NY have refused to meet that demand, instead offering a far smaller sum to shore up border security and asking the President to reopen the government now and negotiate on border security later.

Obviously, as a Man United team, we're there to entertain and get people off their seats, so that's what we'll be looking to do. Tottenham themselves have been in breathtaking form lately. "A draw wouldn't be helpful for anyone here", he said.

Trump has been counselled by outside advisers to move toward declaring a national emergency for the "crisis" that he says exists at the southern border.

For context, CNN compared Trump's approval rating in January 2019 with the approval rating of President Ronald Reagan in January 1983.

The president also said the Democrats don't want to do a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that protects young immigrants brought illegally to the United States by their parents.

"I think [Schumer] is dealing with the objective reality that his party will not tolerate working with Trump", Gingrich told Catsimatidis. Trump said in a separate tweet. "As long as that's the case, we're never going to get a legislative package, no matter what the Senate does".

"I would hate to see it".

Trump has tried on a number of occasions to blame Democrats for the government shutdown, such as when he tweeted in December that "Senator Mitch McConnell should fight for the Wall and Border Security as hard as he fought for anything".

Officials explored diverting money from a range of accounts, including 13.9 billion dollars given to the Army Corps of Engineers after last year's deadly hurricanes and floods, but that option appeared to lose steam following an outcry.

"Last we looked in one of the two funds there's about $1.2 billion of unobligated dollars", Cassidy said Saturday on Fox News.
