Pew Poll: Border wall supporters, detractors won’t concede to end shutdown

The U.S. Capitol is seen as a Jogger

With the address scheduled for January 29, Pelosi wrote a letter to Trump citing security concerns because the Secret Service, which is required to provide security for the address, has not received funding during the impasse.

"What's going to happen is that I think they've been promised that they're going to get the back pay - which doesn't really help them right now when they're trying to pay the bills - but in the fullest of time, when they get the back pay, then that means that there will be a rebound in government spending".

Today, I wrote to @realDonaldTrump recommending that we delay the State of the Union until after government re-opens, as the @SecretService, the lead federal agency for #SOTU security, faces its 26th day without funding. In a statement issued to the Daily Caller Wednesday, Don Jr. said Pelosi is terrified his father will get another chance to speak unfiltered about the Democrat Party's obstruction. Chris Coons of DE were organizing a bipartisan letter asking Trump to agree to the idea of reopening the government for three weeks to allow time for negotiations on border security. He also tweeted, "What are Democrats afraid of Americans hearing?"

The House and Senate announced Tuesday they would stay in session, canceling an upcoming recess week at home if the shutdown continued, which seemed likely.

Yet Democrats fear that if they negotiate while the shutdown persists, it would encourage Trump to use such brinkmanship in the future. "It would be completely inappropriate for President Trump to further deplete the agency's resources and manpower for the sole objective of having an hour of uninterrupted prime time television coverage", he said.

The longest such shutdown in U.S. history dragged into its 25th day with neither President Donald Trump nor Democratic congressional leaders showing signs of bending on the topic that triggered it - funding for a wall Trump promised to build along the border with Mexico.

She made her return to Tennis only past year and will now look to win the tournament for the 8th time , setting a new record. Channel 9 eventually started showing the Williams-Bouchard match when the 37-year-old was up 4-1 in the first set.

Democrats say they will discuss border security once the government has reopened, but Pelosi is refusing money for the wall they view as ineffective and immoral.

If Trump blinks first and temporarily halts the shutdown so negotiators can seek agreement, the White House and some Republicans worry there'll be no incentive pushing Democrats to cut a deal.

Kevin Hassett, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, said Tuesday the shutdown is slowing growth more than predicted.

Trump's current funding plan would only start to address the areas without fencing by adding the additional 234 miles of fencing through funding from 2019, should the bill be passed.

In exchange for a three-week reopening of the government, the senators promise to commit that time to make "our best efforts following regular order in the appropriate committees and mark up bipartisan legislation relating to your request".

The House has passed a Democratic measure to reopen the government through February 8 and provide $14 billion in emergency spending for recent hurricanes, wildfires and other natural disasters. "They're a little short on the R side", said Sen. "I can't imagine telling the President of United States - one, they are not negotiating with him on the shutdown and, two, now they are going to tell him he can't come to the Capitol to them".
