U.S. government shutdown looms as Trump fails to strike a deal

The Post broke down the numbers which point to a unsafe trend among independents, who drive the margin of blame against Republicans, "A 48 percent plurality says Trump and congressional Republicans are mainly responsible for the situation resulting from disagreements over immigration laws and border security, while 28 percent fault Democrats".

The government will enter a partial shutdown at midnight unless Congress passes a funding bill.

"Well, I hope the president talked some sense into Senator Schumer and the Democrats so we don't have the Schumer shutdown tonight", Cotton said.

A test vote on a filibuster by Senate Democrats appeared likely before the shutdown deadline.

Senate Republican leader John Cornyn of Texas said Mr Trump told Mr Schumer to work things out with Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. "Every member of the Senate has strong feelings, sometimes we win, sometimes we lose, but when you are in the minority-they do not control the White House, they do not control the United States Senate-they can not force the American people to give them what they want".

Several GOP senators, for example, were trying to find out from Democrats why they are dug in against the House's short-term spending mechanism. Democrats, however, remain largely opposed to the measure because they want it tied to a larger immigration deal over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and border security. A pile of unfinished Capitol Hill business has been on hold, first as Republicans ironed out last autumn's tax bill and now as Democrats insist on progress on immigration. Dick Durbin. In that same meeting Trump used vulgar language to describe the African countries where some immigrants come from. Many Democratic lawmakers have said they will not vote for any government-funding bill unless it preserves DACA.

The legacy of stunning incompetence by this White House and Congressional Republicans is being cemented in the public's mind, specifically among Independents. However, a bipartisan group of senators - members who know and have long-standing relationships with one another- have yet to sit down and try to hammer out a compromise.

"Democrats are determined and defiant about this", Virginia Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly said leaving the meeting. "Please do not shut the government down". While members of both parties have shown interest in coming up with a more permanent solution for the more than 800,000 undocumented adults who came to the United States as children and have spent the vast majority of their lives here, they have yet to agree on what, and when, that talked-about solution will become a reality. "Kicking the can down the road, four days, forty days, that would have been the fifth CR".

In the House, Republicans muscled the measure through on a mostly party-line 230-197 vote after making modest concessions to chamber conservatives and defence hawks.

"In another month, we'll be right back here, at this moment, with the same web of problems at our feet, in no better position to solve them".

"I'm not going home if the government shuts down", said Idaho Republican Rep. Mike Simpson.
