Trump Tweets Skepticism of Deal With Democrats to Keep Government Open

Trump Tweets Skepticism of Deal With Democrats to Keep Government Open

Ellis SchumerGOP should reject the left's pessimism and the deficit trigger Fallon: Trump's empty seats photo probably reminded him of his inauguration Congress should represent Americans - not illegal aliens MORE (D-N.Y.) said negotiators were making progress in talks to prevent a government shutdown before President Trump weighed in on Tuesday morning.

Earlier, Mr Trump had suggested that disagreements with Democrats about immigration, crime and taxes could block a deal.

But the New York Democrat and the White House have been locked in a war of words about a potential deal after the president said on Twitter that he was meeting with "Chuck and Nancy" on keeping the government open but "I don't see a deal". The White House even provided nameplates to make sure it was clear who was refusing to negotiate.

"What we do now is return to our Republican colleagues and say, 'Is this the direction you want to take our government at the end of the year?'" said Representative Joseph Crowley of NY, a member of the Democratic leadership.

"Only one person in America can sign a bill into law, and that's the president of the United States", Mr. McConnell said. We think that we'll be able to work together.

"Rather than going to the White House for a show meeting that won't result in an agreement", Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement, "we've asked Leader McConnell and Speaker Ryan to meet this afternoon".

U.S. President Donald Trump said more "major sanctions" will be imposed on North Korea Wednesday in response to its latest ballistic missile launch.

"We will take care of it", Trump told reporters at the White House. Using not just President Trump's tweets, but an official White House statement on the issue is a much more effective way of pushing back than simply not showing up. "If it happens, it will be over illegals pouring into the country, crime pouring into the country, no border wall, which everyone wants".

Democrats said that was beyond the pale, and they backed their leaders' decision to ditch the president.

Mrs. Pelosi took to Twitter to deliver a spanking to the president. Ryan, McConnell, and Mattis were positioned on other ends of the otherwise empty table. "If the Democrats want a shutdown, they're making a mistake".

Arrest made after missing North Carolina girl presumed dead

He said that experts did not yet know what sort of payload the missile carried, but presumed it was a very light, mock warhead.

The White House said on Wednesday that it does not expect the government to shut down next month, but has contingency plans in place if Congress fails to reach a deal on funding the government by a December 8 deadline. Republicans are looking for big increases in defense spending, pointing to growing world trouble spots, while Democrats say they need domestic spending increases. The president seemed to see little risk in a holiday government shutdown.

The last shutdown in 2013 lasted more than two weeks and included some high-profile disruptions, including the Obama administration's closure of the open-air monuments on the National Mall.

Republicans are seeking extra funding for defence spending. And math alone says that could lead to a shutdown, since Republicans don't have enough votes to pass a spending bill on their own. "If that happens, we will absolutely blame the Democrats", Trump said of a shutdown.
