The Sunday Edition: President Donald Trump Tweetstorm

And in the process, he came up with a odd new nickname for the barrier. Pirro pressed Trump on why he had yet to declare a national emergency.

But he prefers a negotiated settlement with Congress.

"Eric Young, speaking on behalf of prison workers, said they had to "live pay check to paycheck" earning between "$500 to $700 a month".

White House officials reportedly have been considering diverting unused money from the Army Corps of Engineers budget - specifically, $13.9 billion in emergency hurricane and wildfire relief funds allocated a year ago for use in Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas and California - and from the military construction budget. "I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written", Trump told Fox News's Jeanine Pirro after the New York Times reported that law enforcement officials in 2017 began investigating whether Trump had been working on behalf of Russian Federation against American interests. Brady said the administration was looking at the "breadth" of unspent dollars in other government accounts.

Concerning the allocation of blame, 53 percent say Trump and the Republicans are mainly at fault, and 29 percent blame the Democrats in Congress. And the White House Office of Management and Budget is preparing for the shutdown to continue through February.

Despite Trump's go-slow message, momentum grew in some corners for some sort of emergency declaration.

Before lawmakers left Washington on Friday, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., attempted to make a similar point as Trump did Saturday about the 2016 election in a floor exchange with Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md.

Senior aide Jared Kushner, who traveled with the president to the Texas border on Thursday, was among those opposed to the declaration, arguing to the president that pursuing a broader immigration deal was a better option. The person was unauthorized to discuss private sessions and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"This isn't a wall between Mexico and the United States".

USA government shutdown causes travel delays for Canadians
Boettcher said it's important for travelers to keep in mind to arrive early for flights, especially at larger airports. "Some of them have already quit and many are considering quitting the federal workforce because of this shutdown".

Unredacted Manafort filing hints at Russian Federation collusion
That time could come in addition to his punishment for separate convictions in Virginia on tax and bank fraud charges. But an unredacted section notes some events occurred while Manafort was managing President Trump's 2016 campaign.

Pelosi sent a letter to colleagues late Friday thanking House Democrats for passing bills to reopen shuttered departments and agencies.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and USA counterpart Donald Trump met at the G20 Summit in December. Part of that promise was a Wall at the Southern Border.

There's also little debate that border walls are needed: about a third of the frontier is already fenced off.

In his tweets Saturday, Trump reacted sharply to a televised comment that he lacks a strategy for ending the shutdown. "They can name it whatever they, they can name it "peaches" - I don't care what they name it but we need money for that barrier". "They can name it 'peaches'".

Trump has told advisers he believes the fight for the wall, even if he never gets money for it, is a political win for him.

First, it would allow him to claim that he was the one to act to reopen the government. That is identical to the end of the 16-day shutdown in 2013, when 29 percent blamed then-President Barack Obama and 53 percent put the responsibility on congressional Republicans.

After having talked for days about invoking the national emergency power to unleash the funds, the president hit pause Friday.

Congress on Friday passed legislation to guarantee back pay for all workers affected by the shutdown - both those who have been furloughed and those who have continued working as personnel deemed essential to the protection of life and property.

"I think it is analogous to the governments you see all over the world declaring martial law, justifying whatever they want to do to whomever they want to, whenever they want to", Hoyer said this past Tuesday when asked about the concept.
