Pelosi: We're Giving 'Nothing for the Wall'

Donald Trump is standing firm on his demand for billions of dollars for the wall

Stirewalt said that Trump needs to figure out what he and his administration are willing to give up to end the shutdown altogether. "Why wouldn't he do that?" He would need to be convicted by two-thirds of U.S. senators - an unlikely prospect, unless members of his own Republican party turns on him.

The younger Pelosi was speaking to CNN on Wednesday, and was asked to weigh in on this afternoon's upcoming meeting between Democratic congressional leaders and President Trump.

Pres. Trump also recalled the recent death of a California police officer who was killed by an illegal immigrant, suggesting these type of incidents could be avoided with more border security.

Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt said on "The Daily Briefing" that the Trump administration's demands for border wall funding aren't about money. "Senate Republicans have already supported this legislation, and if they reject it now, they will be fully complicit in chaos and destruction of the President's third shutdown of his term". "Look around tomorrow. It will be a whole new America", Alexandra Pelosi said. Democratic appropriators and leaders discussed the idea with Vermont Sen.

Pelosi: We're Giving 'Nothing for the Wall'

Prospects for the two-part Democratic spending package that will be voted upon in the House appear grim in the Senate.

"I said, 'Mr. President, give me one good reason why you should continue your shutdown of the eight cabinet departments while we are debating our differences on Homeland Security?' He could not give a good answer", Schumer said, accusing Trump and the White House of taking "hostages to have a temper tantrum, pound on the table and say 'it's our way or we hurt all these people'".

"The partisanship, rancor and dysfunction of the Trump shutdown is exactly what voters rebuked in November", said Rep. -elect Joe Neguse of Colorado, a new leader of the freshmen class, in the Democrats' weekly address. That, according to several aides involved in the process, has been viewed as the unofficial moment talks may begin, but there still remains no clear pathway forward for an agreement. They plan to pass two bills: one to fund the Homeland Security department at current levels through February 8, which would continue $1.3 billion in border barrier funding; and the other to fund the rest of the government through September 30, at levels negotiated on a bipartisan basis in the Senate. Unlike his sit-down with Pelosi and Schumer in December, which was in the Oval Office and devolved into tense bickering on camera, this meeting will be held in the Situation Room, which is typically reserved for national security issues and doesn't allow press inside. "They started off with $5.5 billion or else". White House officials had spent days criticising Democrats for failing to take that deal.

He also parried complaints from Democrats who've called the wall immoral by remarking, "Then we have to do something about the Vatican, because the Vatican has the biggest wall of them all". And we try to say, 'You're black, you're brown, you're gay, you're straight, you're a woman, you're a man.' The reality of it is there's no juice in that kind of campaign.
