Trump cancels Davos trip over partial govt. shutdown

Trump cancels Davos trip over partial govt. shutdown”

President Donald Trump arrived at a Texas border town to make the case for his long-promised border wall after negotiations with Democrats blew up over his funding demands. "They have women tied up, they have tape over their mouths, electrical tape". "I'm not going to blame you for it".

"Death is pouring through", Trump said. Additionally, some 800,000 federal workers will start missing paychecks this week. He also canceled a trip to the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, Switzerland, scheduled for later this month, citing Democrats' "intransigence" over the wall.

"Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans have a responsibility, not simply to wait for the President, but to intervene", Schumer said in remarks on the Senate floor.

WASHINGTON ― A last-ditch effort in Congress aiming to reopen the federal government with a broader deal on immigration fell apart on Thursday, virtually guaranteeing the partial shutdown will continue into its fourth week. While he maintains that he has the "absolute right" to do so, both Republicans and Democrats believe the move would be challenged in court.

Further, a national emergency declaration would probably bring legal hurdles, as it could allow Trump the ability to use the military to build a wall instead of getting Congressional approval for its funding.

"If today, the national emergency is border security. tomorrow the national emergency might be climate change", Rubio said.

But pressed on a timeline for doing so, he said he would "see what happens" over the coming days.

I would just say three words to my friend the majority leader: Open the government.

Who would own the shutdown has been a point of contention between the two parties.

Trump, who revels in telling stories about his negotiating skills as a NY real estate magnate, has not managed to get the Democrats to budge on his demand for the $5.7 billion.

Prospects for any kind of a deal appear even dimmer after Trump declared on Wednesday that a meeting with Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to discuss the shutdown was "a total waste of time".

"A total waste of time", Trump tweeted. "How can we say that a wall doesn't work?'"

The proposal mirrored a measure the Senate rejected a year ago after opposition from the White House and senior adviser Stephen Miller.

"Somebody's got to like get some energy to fix this", he said.

Trump disputed that on Thursday, saying "I didn't pound the table". I think they should be used very judiciously. "It's common sense. Look, we're not going anywhere". Things could only get worse on Saturday, when news outlets and television networks will be able to declare this the longest continuous shutdown in USA history. We're not going to commit any crimes. "The Opposition Party & the Dems know we must have Strong Border Security, but don't want to give "Trump" another one of many wins!"
