Trump calls on Democrats to return from 'vacation' to reopen govt

The meeting would come as negotiations to re-open about a quarter of the federal government have been frozen for almost two weeks, and just one day before Democrats take over as the majority party in the House.

The Democrats plan to introduce the legislation on the House floor Thursday, when they regain control, according to Fox News.

Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon that dealing with border security, the wall and the shutdown wasn't how incoming Nancy Pelosi wants to start her tenure when Democrats take over the House.

Nancy Pelosi said that when Democrats retake control of the House of Representatives on Thursday, they will "take action" to end the partial government shutdown. The plan would also extend the department's budget only through February 8, allowing Democrats to revisit funding for key parts of Trump's immigration policy in a month.

Democrats said the entire package is based on legislation that has already been passed by either the Senate or Senate committees.

The president's very first words of the new year were an endorsement of a pro-Trump book by former White House aide Sebastian Gorka. The president continued to insist Monday he wants to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, despite assertions otherwise of three confidants.

"We have no choice, we have to have border security and a wall is part of border security".

"It's simple: The Senate is not going to send something to the president that he won't sign", said a spokesman for Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. The lawsuit debunks Trump's tall claims of wide support for his shutdown stunt; Trump's exclamation and typo filled insults on Twitter are getting to be boring, rambling and not moving the needle one bit.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has lobbied hard for Syria to be readmitted to the league of Arab Nations. But restoring ties with the government of President Bashar al-Assad seemed gradually occurring.

Non-border-related agencies include the Departments of Agriculture, Interior, Transportation, Commerce and Justice.

As a central promise of his campaign, Mr. Trump said the shutdown will continue until Congress gives him the money to build it.

Trump is demanding billions for a border wall between the USA and Mexico this fiscal year, which Democrats have vowed to block.

During President Donald Trump's frenzy of tweets Monday, he appeared to contradict himself on funding for his border wall within minutes.

Striking a partial government shutdown-ending deal with Nancy Pelosi was always going to be hard for Donald Trump - but then the president dug in over the weekend and made clear he is willing to endure a lengthy shutdown to placate his base....

President Trump has invited congressional leaders to the White House Wednesday for a briefing on the southern border. Under the Obama administration, a shutdown dragged on for 17 days.

He followed up with a head-scratcher about "some things" that "NEVER get better and NEVER change", adding, "You have Walls and you have Wheels". Whether or not the GOP-led Senate will take up the legislation or if the president will sign them into law remains to be seen. Repeatedly, Democratic senators told Schumer that they would support money for border security but not Trump's specific request, according to a person familiar with the conversations who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe them.
