Schumer And Pelosi Issue Rebuke To Trump’s Oval Office Speech

  • Trump ‘Would almost say definitely’ will declare emergency to fund border wall

Trump interacted with "Angel parents" frequently while he was campaigning for the White House, often invoking their departed sons and daughters during speeches and speaking about the parents on a first-name basis. We can hire the personnel we need to facilitate trade and immigration at the border.

And Trump said that the government remains shut down "for one reason and one reason only: because Democrats will not fund border security".

President Trump hastened to Capitol Hill Wednesday trying to hold jittery congressional Republicans in line on the 19th day of the partial government shutdown.

Some of those from the caravans who are still hoping to get into the U.S. watched Trump's address Tuesday on television sets inside shelters in Tijuana, just on the other side of the U.S. -Mexico border.
Give me a 25-foot wall and I'll show you a 30-foot ladder.

She continued, "The fact is on the very first day of this Congress, House Democrats passed Senate Republican legislation to reopen government and fund smart, effective border security solutions, but the president is rejecting these bipartisan bills which would reopen government over his obsession with forcing American taxpayers to waste billions of dollars on an expensive and ineffective wall, a wall he always promised Mexico would pay for". "And there is a real toll for federal workers as this shutdown drags on". "We want to start with the facts", Pelosi began.

Trump treated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to M&M's, Skittles, Butterfingers and Baby Ruths during their meeting over the ongoing government shutdown, according to congressional sources.

Powell Meeting On? Depends on Who You Ask
Last month, President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping agreed to 90-day ceasefire as a step toward defusing tensions. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures increased 87 cents to settle at $47.96 a barrel, a 1.85 percent gain.

Democrats have vowed to block funding for a wall, which they say would be immoral and ineffective, and have called on Trump to reopen shuttered portions of the government while border negotiations continue.

He also told the group that Trump won't retreat.

The bollard-style corrugated steel border fence now advocated by Mr. Trump once garnered broad support among Democrats. The administration says it will act on its own to ensure the refunds. But one person said it was unclear whether Trump was serious or joking. It invited representatives from cable news outlets to a White House lunch with Trump ahead of the address, a gesture that is typically reserved for the lead-up to State of the Union speeches.

With Schumer's hunched body hulking beside Nancy Pelosi's uncomfortable stiffness, the odd-pairing echoed that of an illustration straight from the pages of Alvin Schwartz's "Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark". That shutdown exemption would break from past practice and could be challenged.

"The president has now put forth a proposal that includes a strategy to protect the American people with technology at our ports of entry to counter narcotics and weapons coming into this country, detention beds for people who get into this country illegally, humanitarian needs and to allow people to claim asylum in their country of origin".

Trump has said he can relate to the plight of the federal workers who aren't getting paid, though he acknowledged they will have to "make adjustments".
