Trump's Strategy for Avoiding a Shutdown: Head to Mar-a-Lago

Trump's Strategy for Avoiding a Shutdown: Head to Mar-a-Lago

Trump alluded to this in a tweet after his initial, false tweet regarding the funding of the military.

And Democrats are holding the line by saying they'll refuse to vote for another short-term funding bill that would put Congress in the same place in another month.

Now, Democrats are pushing a solution for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and insist that it be addressed before the next deadline Friday - and it's not clear whether the two parties will reach an agreement by then.

The US government typically only experienced funding gaps over the weekend, not impacting the economy in any major way, according to data from the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a think-tank in Washington, DC. "On the Republican side we're interested in what his views are, and those have not been made fully apparent yet", he said.

"Shutdown coming?" Trump tweeted, seeming to revel in the chaotic, high stakes brinksmanship.

It is unlikely that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., even has a simple majority to support a House-passed stopgap measure to keep the government running until February 16. The House had planned to recess later on Friday for a weeklong break but members were warned they could be called back for votes.

The shutdown would begin on the first anniversary of Trump's inauguration as president, and put hundreds of thousands of "non-essential" federal workers on temporary unpaid leave. Tim Kaine, D-Va. "At some point it starts to look like the goal is delay, not to get a deal".

Ryan can count on some moderate Democrats to vote for the stopgap if the only other choice is a shutdown, giving his team a valuable cushion.

"Let's fulfill the core responsibilities of Congress. Let's fund the government, provide for the American people, and then resume serious negotiations on the issues that matter most".

Senate Democrats have insisted that as part of the government funding process lawmakers resolve the legal status of the more than 700,000 people brought to the United States illegally as children who had been protected under the Obama era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. ABC News found that in 1995, by a 2-to-1 margin, the country blamed congressional Republicans more than Clinton.

"OMB is preparing for what we're calling the Schumer Shutdown", said White House Office of Management and Budget Director (OMB) Mick Mulvaney at a press briefing on Friday.

In the Senate, Republicans have a narrow 51-49 majority and legislation requires 60 votes to advance.

Trump's Tweet Confuses Already Confusing Government Funding Situation
The Senate was expected to begin considering the House-passed bill later on Thursday, with a first procedural vote likely. Democrats are also withholding support for a longer-term spending deal until an immigration deal is clinched.

White House says Trump supports budget deal, CHIP funding
Ronny Jackson told the press that he did have some concerns, however, about the president's weight and sedentary lifestyle. But the Navy and Marines veteran still managed to raise some eyebrows with comments about Trump's " incredible genes ".

"I am not going to support continuing this fiasco for 30 more days by voting for a continuing resolution", Graham said Thursday.

Trump tweeted Friday morning about the Friday night shutdown deadline, suggesting Democrats would be to blame. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate - but they want illegal immigration and weak borders.

"The only proposal out there is the one that Democrats are going to have the chance to vote on, which is one month", Cornyn said.

Durbin, who is leading the fight for the Dreamers, told reporters late on Thursday there had been some signs earlier in the day that talks with Republicans were taking a positive turn and a deal could be within reach. "However, when we look at holiday sales, they continue into January", Bovino said.

"So I really think the pressure is on the president", he added.

The mixed messages from the White House prompted a rebuke Wednesday from a frustrated McConnell. "We need to get his resolved, we need to get to agreement".

"It's really nearly like amateur hour", she told reporters at her weekly news briefing.

While it remains unclear who will take the brunt of the blame for a shutdown, early polls indicate the public will place the blame mostly on Trump and Republicans. In addition to strong Democratic opposition, at least three Republican senators have said they will not back the continuing resolution in its current form.

The Senate is scheduled to convene Friday morning, but lawmakers and aides said there is no consensus on how to head off the impending midnight partial government shutdown.

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia has indicated he was leaning in favour of the stopgap measure.

WASHINGTON | A bitterly divided Congress hurtled toward a government shutdown this weekend in a partisan stare-down over demands by Democrats for a solution on politically fraught legislation to protect about 700,000 younger immigrants from being deported.
