New Polls: Majorities Blame Trump And GOP For Shutdown, Oppose Border Wall

Donald Trump

Congress says all affected federal workers will get back pay as soon as the shutdown is over, but that brings little assurance to those who have immediate expenses or little or no savings in case of an emergency.

A US Republican senator close to President Donald Trump has urged him to temporarily reopen the government for talks as Transportation Security Administration (TSA) staff absences closed an worldwide airport concourse during the record 23-day shutdown.

"I would hate to see it". "As long as that's the case, we're never going to get a legislative package, no matter what the Senate does". But nine out of ten Democrats oppose it. Trump's disapproval rating, CNN noted, has also increased by five points over the course of the past few months. Democrats oppose that step but may be unable to stop it.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to explain why he thinks these stalled negotiations over border security funding will come back to haunt Democrats in 2020. As of this weekend, there is still no clear path ahead to end the shutdown.

On Monday the partial shutdown enters its 24th day. Yesterday, Trump acknowledged, at least indirectly, the mounting costs of the shutdown.

"More border security - let's have at it", Senator Mark Warner, Democrat of Virginia, said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Lawmakers are due back in Washington from their states and congressional districts in the new week.

Democrats in Congress rejected Trump's request that legislation to fund the government include $5.7 billion of taxpayer money for a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.

He won the National League batting title in 2016 when he hit.348 and had a.416 on-base percentage over the course of 149 games. There was speculation that Machado might be willing to take a discount to play with the Yankees, who were his first choice.

Two new polls indicate the Democrats may be winning the battle for public support. This, as polls suggest Trump is getting most of the blame for the shutdown. Today, 42 per cent say they support a wall, up from 34 per cent in January past year.

The president has closely tied his fate to his steadfast conservative base.

Sen. Lindsey Graham is encouraging Trump to reopen government for several weeks to continue negotiating with Democrats over the border wall Trump wants to build on the U.S. -Mexico border. "I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written", Trump told Fox News's Jeanine Pirro after the New York Times reported that law enforcement officials in 2017 began investigating whether Trump had been working on behalf of Russian Federation against American interests.

Trump has acknowledged that an emergency declaration would likely trigger a legal battle ending in the Supreme Court.

Opponents say that a unilateral presidential move would be constitutional overreach and set a risky precedent in similar controversies. The have also refused to resume talks until the government is reopened. Some employees, such as air traffic controllers and government airport security workers, are working without pay.

Both Democrats and Republicans agree that the US-Mexican border presents challenges, but Trump has turned his single-minded push for more walls into a crusade.

The senator added that Trump might be willing to reach an agreement that would include border wall funding and protections for beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, as well as for those receiving temporary protected status.
