Dems are the cause of the government shut down. Senator Chuck Schumer lambasted President Donald Trump over his demand that American taxpayers pay for a border wall which has led to a partial government shutdown. In an exclusive interview with USA TODAY House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi accused President Donald Trump of using "scare tactics" to build support for his proposed U.S.-Mexican border wall, which she joked had been reduced from a giant, cement structure "to, I think, a beaded curtain."
Trump and congressional Democrats remained locked in a bitter stalemate Tuesday over billions of dollars in funding for the wall, which Trump said is necessary to end a partial government shutdown. Most lawmakers are home for the holiday, so a speedy resolution would amount to a Christmas miracle. While wishing a Merry Christmas to troops overseas, Trump said he doesn't know when the government shutdown will end. "Its a disgrace whats happening in our country," Trump said in the Oval Office. "But other than that, I wish everybody a very Merry Christmas."
Though congressional Democrats said they will not support money for a border wall, Trump said the United States needs "a wall, a fence, whatever they want to call it." The remarks underscore how dug in both the White House and congressional Democrats have become amid the shutdown that began Friday at midnight. The president kept a low profile on Christmas Eve, posting on Twitter that he was "alone" at the White House waiting for Democrats to agree to a deal to reopen federal agencies. The White House said Trump met with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen about border security but provided no details about the discussion.
The big Trump surprise is his Midnight Tuesday
trip to Iraq with the First Lady. This was a big positive play of
all the soldiers.
