Shutdown Will Be Worse For Economy Than First Thought, White House Says

Shutdown Will Be Worse For Economy Than First Thought, White House Says

Although a majority of Americans blame the US president for the prolonged partial government shutdown, Donald Trump on Monday told farmers that the opposition Democrats in Congress are squarely responsible.

Trump and the Democrats in Congress remain deadlocked over the proposed border wall on the US-Mexico border, with the president demanding $5.7 billion for the barrier and his opponents proposing smaller funding commitments, which the president rejected.

While the internet had a field day about President Trump serving a championship football team cold fast food, the Clemson players seemed to enjoy the meal. "We'll be out for a long time".

About 4.1 million people work under federal contracts, but there are no official numbers on the number of contractors affected by the shutdown.

The dispute has led to what is now the longest government shutdown in United States history, with 800,000 federal workers either working without pay or furloughed since 22 December.

"He thinks it is okay not to pay people who do work", Pelosi said.

The department said it was taking the step because it had become clear that the lapse in funding is harming efforts "to address the myriad critical issues requiring US leadership around the globe and to fulfill our commitments to the American people". He also suggested the partial shutdown, which has clogged airport security lines and shuttered federal agencies, was going smoothly.

On Monday, House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey introduced the funding bill, along with a separate stopgap measure that would provide funding to the government through February 28, which is expected to come to the floor on Thursday, as per the report.

The president has not been swayed so far, this week blasting "radical Democrats."

An effort by the White House to divide House Democrats fizzled when centrist and freshmen Democrats didn't accept a White House invitation to lunch with Trump on Tuesday.

"For Nancy Pelosi to withdraw the offer shows insecurity on their part and that they can't defend their open borders policy", Scalise told reporters Wednesday.

"Under no circumstances during a government shutdown will any government owned, rented, leased, or chartered aircraft support any Congressional delegation, without the express written approval of the White House Chief of Staff", a memo said.

Trump ended up lunching with a handful of lesser-known House Republicans. The California Democrat notes that the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security have been without funding for nearly four weeks.

"We're going to stay out for a long time, if we have to", Trump said. Trump wants $5.7 billion to help fund a U.S. -Mexico border wall, which Democrats oppose. However, it said it would "review its balances and available legal authorities to see if other flexibilities may be available". Roy Blunt, R-Mo., a member of his party's Senate leadership.

However, the signing of the Government Employee Fair Treatment Act of 2019, sponsored by Sen.

Some lawmakers are reluctant to return home for next week's planned recess - some were planning their first town halls of the new year - as the standoff deepens.

"We had a report from Afghanistan. that the president outing our trip had made the scene on the ground much more unsafe because it was just a signal to the bad actors that we're coming", Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. Trump allies say that he will win credit for fighting to fulfill a promise Trump he made to voters as a 2016 candidate. John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 2 Senate Republican. "There's nobody on the horse coming to rescue us ... that I know about".
