Trump cancels Davos trip over partial govt. shutdown

No end for government shutdown in sight Sen. Marco Rubio: National Emergency Move Could Hurt GOP

Marco Rubio (R) says he's not ready to endorse President Donald Trump declaring a national emergency in order to build a border wall, warning that such broad use of executive power sets the stage for future actions that might not be as palatable to conservatives. "The Democrats are apparently not going to negotiate until the government is open, and if you even open the government, the House isn't going to negotiate about funding for the wall".

Trump blamed opposition Democrats' "intransigence" over his demand for $5.7 billion to extend a border wall with Mexico.

Trump is to visit a border patrol station and receive a briefing on border security. Trump took issue with that characterization, denying that he acted out of anger.

However, patience with the shutdown is wearing thin as 800,000 federal employees are left unpaid, government contractors are losing money, and people who rely on public services are left waiting for everything to reopen when a bipartisan deal is eventually done.

"It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier", he continued.

"We have to recognize something because my head's going to explode", Deutsch said during a discussion on Thursday's edition of Morning Joe.

McConnell walked into his office after leaving the Senate floor, where he objected to the Democratic request to re-open the government.

If Congress doesn't make a deal, Mr. Trump said "it would be very surprising" if he didn't declare such a national emergency.

"And what he's done is chipped at our democracy". "If this doesn't work out, I probably will do it, I would nearly say definitely", Mr. Trump told reporters.

The Senate approved a bill by voice vote to provide back pay to federal workers now on furlough or working without pay when the government shutdown ends. "And that's why we're all chumps". But she did say it would be "irresponsible" of Trump. According to a Politico/Morning Consult poll, 52% of voters pointed the finger at Trump and Congressional Republicans. "But they are paying for the wall indirectly, many, many times over, by the really great trade deal we just made".

President Donald Trump addresses the Project Safe Neighborhoods National Conference on December 7, 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri. Trump wants $5.7 billion from Congress to fund his wall along the southern border with Mexico.
