Pelosi has a message for Trump: 'Nothing for the wall'

Pelosi has a message for Trump: 'Nothing for the wall'”

"I do not think that is conclusive".

Incoming chairpersons have signaled that Trump will face a barrage of probes that could bog down a White House already besieged by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation collusion probe, draining energy from the administration's agenda and foiling Trump's message. "I think that is an open discussion in terms of the law".

Since then, the president has sought to blame the Democrats for the shutdown because they will not agree to a budget that includes any of the $5 billion of funding Trump is demanding for his border wall, which he claims will stop undocumented migrants crossing into the U.S.

Although Pelosi said in a statement afterward that "we welcome the presence of these activists", the episode highlighted a growing rift between establishment Democrats and up-and-coming politicians such as Ocasio-Cortez and Khanna, who each unseated longtime party incumbents.

Pelosi is now locked in a stalemate with Mr. Trump and Senate Republicans over a funding bill to end the partial government shutdown.

Incoming chairpersons have signalled that Trump will face a barrage of probes that could lay bare alleged conflicts of interest, misuse of funds, and abuse of power by the president and members of his cabinet.

"We can go through the back and forth", Pelosi said in a clip that aired on MSNBC on Wednesday. "No".

"We need to tell her that we've got her back in showing and pursuing the most progressive energy agenda that this country has ever seen", Ocasio-Cortez said while standing in the middle of a group of around 200 protestors holding signs reading "Green Jobs For All".

Pelosi also addressed her national unpopularity, saying that Republicans demonized her because she is effective. "President give me one good reason why you should continue your shutdown of the eight cabinet departments while we are debating our differences on homeland security.' He could not give a good answer", said Schumer.

She will take command during a period of American political upheaval, and with a caucus riding high after a very strong midterm election showing last November.

Pelosi is poised to be elected Thursday as House speaker, the only woman who has held the office and now one of few elected officials who will be returning to it.

She is the first female speaker of the House.
