Sanders: White House ready to work with Congress

H5 stephen miller interview

House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schemer: "I am proud to shut down the government for border security". McConnell said a stopgap measure could be approved, though he suggested that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is poised to become House speaker when the Democrats take control January 3, would not want to saddle the new year with a budget brawl.

The turn of events kick-started negotiations that had been nearly nonexistent since last week's televised meeting at the White House, when Trump neither accepted nor rejected the Democrats' offer. "We need border security".

Sanders said the White House has "been in continuous conversations" with Republicans and Democrats on shutdown negotiations, with talks happening as recently as Tuesday morning.

Trump doesn't have the votes from the Republican-led Congress to support his demand for border wall construction.

It wasn't always like this, with Congress and the White House at a crisis over government funding.

Part of the federal government will shut down Friday at midnight unless an agreement on a new spending plan is reached.

Democratic leaders in Congress, however, refuse to give Trump the money for the wall. "We want to shut down the border".

The White House responded by adding a $1 billion "slush fund" for "immigration projects" (including, by implication, the border wall) into the DHS continuing resolution - a deal that made Democrats balk.

What other funds could be tapped to satisfy the president's demand remains unclear.

Schumer and Pelosi offered Trump two alternatives for a spending bill: passing the six bipartisan appropriations bills and year-long funding for Homeland Security, which would only include $1.3 billion for the wall - or passing a year-long funding bill for all of the seven agencies.

Mr Trump is seeking $5bn (£3.9bn) from Congress to start work on the wall.

About 75 percent of the federal government has been funded by Congress. And they certainly don't have the votes in the Senate. But he also chided Democrats, saying they caused the most recent shutdown earlier this year.

"Time for us to save billions of dollars a year and have, at the same time, far greater safety and control".

Trump, Giuliani said, would not submit to an interview by Mueller's team.

Exiting a Senate Republican leadership meeting late Monday, Sen.

"His temper tantrum will get him a shutdown, but it will not get him a wall", Schumer said.

"The House and the Senate are trying to come up with a proposal that would get passed in both of those bodies before Friday. which I hope the President would then choose to sign", said Senator Barrasso. Aides to House Speaker Paul Ryan were not immediately available for comment. More than 30 people regularly volunteer to carve and sand the wooden cars, with inmates at the Central Utah Correctional Facility painting them. "We need to make a substantial investment in the integrity of our border and in the safety of American ... families", McConnell said.

Meanwhile, more than 800,000 government workers are preparing for the uncertainty ahead.
