Trump says he needs to deal with Dem leaders to end shutdown

  • House Democrats target 'culture of corruption' with new reform package

On this weekend's broadcast of Fox News Channel's "Justice", host Jeanine Pirro criticized Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the freshman congresswoman who said during her remarks at an event the new Democrat-controlled Congress would "go in and impeach the motherfucker", apparently referring to President Donald Trump. "But I think we're going to have some very serious talks come Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday".

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said in a separate interview on the same program that talks on Saturday to reopen the government "did not make much progress".

"Let's get those reopened while the negotiations continue", she said on NBC's "Meet the Press". She has long argued against them and tried to broker resolutions to past stalemates.

A go-fund-me campaign reported earlier this week that almost $20 million has been collected from private donors for a wall, far short of the $5.6 billion demanded by the president.

Republican Susan Collins of ME wants the Senate to take up House-passed bills to re-open the government. "If they don't want to, it's going to go on for a long time".

Trump asserted on Friday that he could declare a national emergency to build the wall without congressional approval, but would first try a "negotiated process".

"Look, if Harry Truman couldn't nationalize the steel industry during wartime, this President doesn't have the power to declare an emergency and build a multibillion dollar wall on the border", Schiff said.

"I can relate", Trump, a former NY businessman, said when asked if he could relate to the pain of federal workers struggling to pay their bills. A day earlier, the president had tweeted that he didn't care that "most of the workers not getting paid are Democrats".

"Democrats and now a growing number of Republicans are coming together and saying let's open up the government and debate border security separately", Schumer told reporters in NY.

"I would rather have the Supreme Court rule and then work with the Democrats on DACA", Trump said.

The Democrats asked for a formal budget justification for the administration's position in order to determine what the White House's request is, said a person familiar with the discussion.

Trump is demanding over 5 billion US dollars in border security to deliver his signature campaign promise to build the border wall, whose construction and funding have been strongly rejected by Democrats.

Senior White House adviser, and Trump son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were involved in the meeting Saturday, with Nielsen briefing those in attendance on border security.

Trump's latest jibe at the Democrats comes as Democrat Nancy Pelosi, 78, was elected on Thursday to be the new speaker of the US House of Representatives as the party took majority control of the House.

Trump had once vowed to build a concrete border wall, but now says the barrier will be made of steel slats. But Democrats have made clear they see a wall as immoral and ineffective and prefer other types of border security funded at already agreed upon levels. "He's not building a wall anymore, ' that should help us move in the right direction", Mulvaney said.

Trump was tweeting about the wall early on Sunday, quoting past comments in support of a barrier by former president Barack Obama, whose name he misspelled, and Senator Hillary Clinton and insisting the wall will end illegal border crossings and crime. It does not affect a 2.6% pay increase for United States troops that was passed as part of the massive defense spending bill Trump signed in August.
