Democrats say Trump walked out of shutdown negotiations

Fox News Anchor Says Trump's Claims on Immigrants and Drugs Are Wrong in On-air Fact Check

"Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time", the president tweeted.

"The Republican Party, I can say, we had an hour meeting, a great time".

"Unfortunately, the President just got up and walked out", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told reporters outside the White House. "It's cold out here, and the temperature wasn't much warmer in the Situation Room". "And he just got up, and said, 'Well we've got nothing to discuss, '" Schumer said. "We don't govern by temper tantrum".

Vice President Pence blamed Democrats for refusing to give ground on the wall.

Dick Durbin speak to the media after meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump about ending the partial government shutdown, on January 4, 2019 in Washington, DC.

"I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier?"

It is the second longest government shutdown in USA history, furloughing 800,000 government workers or forcing them to work without pay.

"The president seems to be insensitive to that", Pelosi said. Instead, he is still demanding that American taxpayers pay at least $5.7 billion for his wall, which can't pass either chamber of Congress and of course Mexico is not paying for. "There was no discussion about anything but solidarity", Trump contended. "American democracy doesn't work that way".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed Customs and Border Patrol previous year apprehended almost 4,000 known or suspected terrorists at the U.S. -Mexico border. Eastern Tuesday night, the Democrats were able to secure time of their own to offer a rebuttal. Until now, Democrats have refused to budge on the border wall, which has blocked the formation of a new budget and put government services on hold.

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has not budged.

In their joint response to Trump's speech, Pelosi and Schumer pointed to a number of spending bills lawmakers have already passed that would reopen the government and provide money for border security. GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowsi of Alaska and a few other GOP senators have suggested they want to reopen the government, and Sen. "We've shown our willingness to work with them". America is being changed day by day, in a way that the American people never voted to do. He should let that go. The measure directed the Department of Homeland Security to build stretches of fencing along the southern border and was approved on a bipartisan front.

Hundreds of thousands of federal employees who are working without pay will miss their pay cheque this week. "It's a very bad political issue for the Democrats". But I know that the president has the authority to do it in certain situations if it's declared essential to national security.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has called on Congress to end the government shutdown to prevent the pain from spreading beyond federal payrolls. In past shutdowns, civil servants were paid retroactively once the impasses ended.
