Support For Border Wall Jumps As More Americans Blame Trump For Shutdown

US government shutdown hits record length with no end seen

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 USA border with Mexico.

He said Mr Trump had told him: "Let's make a deal, then open up the government". See if we can get a deal.

Graham and Coons spoke on "Fox News Sunday".

Another Republican, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that Trump is "willing to meet in the middle" to end a partial United States government shutdown, now at a record 23rd day. Lindsey Graham also says Trump still wants to reach a deal for the wall before agreeing to reopen shuttered government departments. Johnson appeared on CNN's "State of the Union".

Lawmakers adjourned for the weekend but will return to Washington on Monday.

But there was another election, in November, and the effect of that is that Democrats now control the House and they refuse to give Trump money for a wall.

A later tweet said damage from "Drugs, Crime and so much that is bad" were worse for the U.S. than the government shutdown. Functions not happening include some routine food inspections, timely release of market-moving agriculture data, and USA reviews needed for initial public offerings of stocks.

Democrats, meanwhile, seem determined at all costs to prevent the president from getting the wall he has often promised in his campaign-style rallies.

Democrats hammered away at their demand that Trump reopen the government. Most also reject the President's assertion that there is an illegal-immigration crisis on the southern border. On Friday, though, he said he wasn't rushing to use that option - which would be challenged in court and, if not overturned, establish a precedent expanding the power of future presidents who could include Democrats. The No. 2 Senate Democrat, Dick Durbin, said Sunday on ABC that "if this president is going to turn to national emergencies every time he disagrees with Congress, I'm against it".

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill responded on Twitter that "Speaker Pelosi has been in DC all weekend working from the Capitol". "I'm just so frustrated we can't get into a room and hammer it out".

"It's time for those centrists to speak up in their own Republican Senate caucus and tell Mitch McConnell, 'The party's over".

A Republican senator advising Donald Trump has said he is encouraging the president to reopen the government for several weeks to continue negotiating with Democrats over funding for a US-Mexico border wall.

Overall 56 percent of respondents opposed the idea of building a border wall, while only 39 percent were in favor the idea.

First, it would allow him to claim that he was the one to act to reopen the government.

A key question is how much more time is Mr Trump willing to give Congress. Mr Graham, who said he and Mr Trump talked by telephone on Sunday morning, said the legislative path "is just about shut off" and blamed Ms Pelosi. Most came through our Southern Border. "Clearly the president's got authority under the law, but he's said he doesn't want it to come to that".

As Friday ticked into Saturday, the shutdown passed the 21-day mark set when Bill Clinton faced a hostile Republican Congress in 1995 and 1996.

The president didn't elaborate on the reporter or the news program he had in mind while tweeting, but Washington Post's Philip Rucker identified himself as Trump's target.

The assessment from Graham, who has become close to Trump, suggested the shutdown could last for weeks longer, if not months, inflicting additional financial pain on the 800,000 federal workers who have been idled or required to work without pay for the duration. Trump has said he'll sign it.

Nearly half of all Republicans (49 per cent) say the situation at the border is a crisis, and 43 per cent say it is serious but not a crisis.
