Trump walks out of shutdown talks with a 'bye-bye'

Trump walks out of shutdown talks with a 'bye-bye'”

As the government shutdown enters its 18th day, Trump has refused to back down on his demands of approval of $5.7 billion to fund the steel wall on the southern border, a request denied by the Democrats.

The partial shutdown started on December 22 when funding for many federal agencies expired and the US president refused to sign any spending measure from the Congress that did not include United States dollars 5 billion for his US-Mexico border wall.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says the president has "chosen fear" in making the case to the American people for the border wall and Democrats "want to start with the facts".

When it was over, the only thing that all parties seemed to agree on was the president's assessment that the meeting had been "a total waste of time".

The two leaders said this in a joint statement late Monday: "Now that the television networks have made a decision to air the president's address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime". Trump said in a meeting with Schumer and Pelosi in December that he would be "proud" to shut down the government over border security.

Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader in the Senate, told journalists: "The president just got up and walked out". Across the seven nets and down 4 from the opposition, the "temper tantrum" accused POTUS pulled in a 28.1/45 rating in the overnight metrics in the 9 - 9:15 PM ET time period. This barrier is absolutely critical to border security.

Smith also took issue with Trump's claim that it was law enforcement professionals who wanted the wall.

Democrats, newly in control of the House of Representatives, have said they will not allocate any money toward the wall, which remains a popular concept within Trump's base but has little support from the broader American public. Fifty-one per cent of adults surveyed between Jan 1 and Monday said Mr Trump "deserves most of the blame" for the shutdown, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday.

The Democrats have "refused to provide our fearless border agents with the tools they desperately need to protect our families and our nation", he added.

Exiting the White House, Democratic leaders did not dispute the substance of Trump's retelling of events.

Noting that his administration was doing everything in its power to help those impacted by the situation, Trump said the only solution was for Democrats to pass a spending bill that defends the borders and reopens the government.

"Day after day, precious lives are cut short by those who have violated our borders", Trump said. A source close to Trump's orbit argued that the president's frequent use of "illegal alien", a term the previous administration was loath to employ, bore the fingerprints of Trump consigliere Stephen Miller, who oversees speechwriting in the West Wing. Kimmel quipped. "That's either a hall or the White House morgue, I'm not sure".
