Trump Tells Democrats 'come Back from Vacation'

Trump said he's waiting in the Oval Office for Democrats to return to Washington and negotiate an end to a partial government shutdown.

House Democrats said they plan to introduce a legislative package later Monday to re-open the government, including a bill that would fund the Department of Homeland Security at current levels through February 8 with $1.3 billion for border security, but it's unclear what kind of support it will get from Republicans.

Her first order of business is expected to be passing a bill to fund the federal departments that are closed, without providing extra resources for Trump's border wall.

"We attach high (75 percent) odds on the White House and new Congress resolving differences to the government shutdown next week", said Charles Gabriel, an analyst at policy research and strategy firm Capital Alpha Partners.

Democrats, who will constitute a majority in the House of Representative beginning in January, will introduce legislation that was approved by the Senate earlier in December, the report said.

The president also doubled down on his campaign pledge that Mexico would fund the wall - and suggested in an earlier tweet that he had kept that promise.

Within hours, the White House pushed back on Kelly's comments by highlighting Trump's earlier tweets on the topic. He also said the compromise should include changes in federal law to discourage people from trying to enter the U.S. illegally. Richard Shelby, the Alabama Republican who chairs the Senate Appropriations Committee, urged party leaders to come back to the table to find a way forward.

"Our negotiations are at an impasse at the moment".

Efforts to broker a solution since the shutdown began have failed and given way to a blame game between Democrats, Mr Trump and other Republicans.

Trump, however, has refused to accept a bill that does not include at least $2.5 billion for the border wall - down from his original demand of $5 billion - but Democrats have said they will not go above $1.3 billion they have already offered.

But on Sunday White House counselor Kellyanne Conway called discussion of the apparent contradiction "a silly semantic argument".

"We pushed the pause button", McConnell said the day the government was scheduled to partially close, "until the President, from whom we will need a signature, and Senate Democrats, from whom we will need votes, reach an agreement".

A White House official said Democratic Sen.

"To my Democratic friends: There will never be a deal without wall funding", Graham said.

But the president seems to have taken issue with that explanation, and tweeted defiantly on Monday morning, confirming that his long-held desire for a fully-concrete wall at the southern border to curb illegal immigration was "NEVER ABANDONED" despite what "has been reported by the media".

Democrats plan to put the ball back in Trump's court immediately on Thursday by passing a general spending bill which would allow the government to reopen fully, but would not include extra wall construction money, United States media reports said.

The House is planning two separate votes for Thursday.

And if the shutdown drags into the new Congress? The House will quickly elect Nancy Pelosi as its new speaker, and approve a package of Democratic-designed rules for the chamber that will govern its operations over the next two years.

The shutdown is forcing hundreds of thousands of federal workers and contractors to stay home or work without pay.

The second bill would reopen and fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) only on a short-term basis. "So here's what I think might work: $5 billion for wall/border security - Democrats have voted for more than that in the past - married up with the BRIDGE Act, which Sen".
