Government shutdown becomes longest in United States history

US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer say President Donald Trump just got up and walked out on their negotiation

A quarter of United States federal government workers have been impacted by the partial shutdown but employees deemed "essential" workers must continue to work without pay.

Gingrich said even if pockets of the Democratic party are against open borders, its political goals are not going tobe met unless they take down President Trump and whatever his agenda is.

President Donald Trump on 10 January 2019 claimed he never said Mexico would write a check to pay for his promised new border wall.

About 800,000 workers missed paychecks, many receiving blank pay statements.

Trump fired off a series of tweets pushing back against the notion that he doesn't have a strategy to end what became the longest government shutdown in USA history when it entered its 22nd day Saturday.

"We want Congress to do its job", the president said in a discussion on border security at the White House.

He's not tipping his hand about whether he'll move ahead with an emergency declaration that could break the impasse and free up money for his wall without congressional approval.

"If they can't do it. I have the absolute right", he insisted.

A key question is how much more time is Mr Trump willing to give Congress. Mr Graham, who said he and Mr Trump talked by telephone on Sunday morning, said the legislative path "is just about shut off" and blamed Ms Pelosi.

Only minutes earlier, powerful Republican ally Sen.

Harbhajan Singh minced no words and told India Today, "Look, the punishment could be a two-match or three-match ban". After his surprise recall, Siddle on Thursday had said, "It's something I'd probably forgotten about really.

Last weekend, senior White House staff traveled to Camp David for meetings with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, who has led shutdown talks, and officials pretaped interviews with television networks so they could get their message out on the Sunday shows.

Trump has maintained that the border can not be secured without a wall. With the closure's growing impact on the economy, national parks and food inspections, some Republicans are becoming uncomfortable with Trump's demands.

There's also little debate that border walls are needed: about a third of the frontier is already fenced off.

This morning around 7 a.m., Trump tweeted, "Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, nearly all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin' James Comey, a total sleaze!"

Meanwhile, Trump is either lying, or forgot that he visited Texas last week and made a previously-unscheduled visit to Iran the week before. The White House also was eyeing military construction money, another politically hard choice because it would take away from a backlog of hundreds of projects.

More certain is that while narcotics do enter the country across remote sections of the border, most are sneaked through heavily guarded checkpoints in vehicles, the government's own Drug Enforcement Administration said in a 2017 report.

"The fact that we can look at anything is part of the problem", he said.

But there was another election, in November, and the outcome of that is that the Democrats now control the House and they refuse to give Trump money for a wall.

"Stop harming our country and our economy and let's make our best efforts because we all agree we need to invest more in border security", Coons said.

CNN found that "t$3 he public generally is more apt to blame the President, with 55% saying he is more responsible for the shutdown than are Democrats in Congress, while 32% say the blame rests mostly with the Democrats. I will declare a national emergency", Trump said. Among Democrats, just 7 per cent say the situation amounts to a crisis, and 52 per cent say conditions are serious.
