Trump, Democrats to meet to avert government shutdown

Trump, Democrats to meet to avert government shutdown Pelosi, Schumer Say Trump Has Asked for New Meeting

Democrats have the ability to demand changes in the spending bills because Republicans do not have enough Senate votes to block a Democratic filibuster in that chamber.

A partial government shutdown would leave "essential" services operating, but could disrupt programs ranging from the operation of national parks to educational programs and scientific research. The written statement said Trump was glad the two top Democrats had made a decision to "put their responsibility to the American people above partisanship" and said Trump was anticipating productive talks between "leaders who put their differences aside".

"They want to have illegal immigrants pouring into our country, bringing with them crime", Trump continued.

Congress has until midnight on Friday to approve a short-term spending package to keep the government open.

"There's a great spirit in the Republican Party like I've never seen before - like a lot of people said they have never seen before", Mr. Trump told reporters.

Yet, Politico notes that the issue really isn't with the Democrats so much as the GOP infighting that's occurred over a proposed two-week continuing resolution proposal. Different versions of the tax bill have passed the House and Senate and now must be reconciled. Graves said in an interview that short-term funding bills are a tactic of the minority and argued that Republicans are "squandering" their power of the purse.

"If that happens, I would absolutely blame the Democrats", he said.

"The Senate needs two more weeks?" "We don't want to have that".

Congress grills Trump Jr. on 2016 meeting as Russian Federation probe picks up
Representative Jackie Speier told CNN that she found him "pretty non-responsive" throughout the day. Trump Jr.'s lawyer, Alan Futerfas, said last month that there was only "small talk" between them.

House Republicans announced Monday that they intend to pass resolution extending a government spending resolution until December 22.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), meanwhile, made a trip across the Capitol on Wednesday afternoon, meeting in McCarthy's office with several House members. House Freedom Caucus leaders emerged from a closed-door meeting with Speaker Paul Ryan Wednesday morning - their second in two days - saying no deal has been reached.

Republicans want to secure funding for President Donald Trump's promised border wall and increase the defense spending caps.

Democrats have leverage because a bill needs 60 votes in the Senate to pass. And those on the left have demanded "parity"- namely, equivalent increases for defense and non-defense priories in other agencies - in order to win their votes.

The Republican president wants to switch the U.S.to a merit-based immigration system to cut down on "chain migration" practices that allow extended family members of legal residents to apply for and receive visas.

His comments drew a tweet from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who called Trump "the only person talking about a government shutdown". Without support from many of them, Republicans would need votes from Democrats to push the temporary spending measure through the House, and Democrats have not said what they will do.

We'll see what happens.

'So the Democrats maybe will want to shutdown the country cause they want people flowing into our country, and I want people coming into our country, but I want to vet those people, and I want to vet them very carefully, ' Trump said, 'because we don't want to have radical Islamic terrorism in this country, and we don't want to have crime in this country'.
