Trump meets with coalition of Democrats and Republicans as shutdown drags on

All Of Twitter Is Roasting The Ghetto That Was The White House Dinner For Clemson Football Champs

Donald Trump, Jr. slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for trying to get President Donald Trump to delay his State of the Union address as the government shutdown continues, in an exclusive statement to The Daily Caller.

Democrats remain opposed to Trump's demand for $5.7 billion.

Rep. Dean Phillips joined a bipartisan group of House members scheduled that met Wednesday with President Donald Trump at the White House to talk about the federal government shutdown.

Trump Jr. has excoriated Pelosi in recent days for downplaying the threat of illegal immigration, urging the speaker to meet with mothers of children killed by illegal immigrants.

Visitors to the White House are finding the doors closed to public tours and first lady Melania Trump had half her office staff furloughed as the effects of the government shutdown pile up.

The House speaker's letter comes as the White House attempts to persuade moderate House Democrats to change course and vote for border-wall funding.

"I will be making the State of the Union on January 29th", Trump told reporters on January 6.

Federal employees received pay stubs with nothing but zeros on them last week.

"Whatever you want we're gonna take care of you", he said, offering lobster and caviar as food options. "But also I hope it will be a call to action for our senators and congressman and especially President Trump to make sure that we end this moment in the history of America where families are about to go hungry". In the same poll, 62 percent of people said they support adding more border patrol agents, and there was a roughly even split of 43 percent of people both supporting and opposing additional fencing at the border. The White House has not responded to Pelosi's request or Hoyer's comments, but White House sources confirmed to Breitbart News that they are working on a response.

Trump signed the Government Employee Fair Treatment Act of 2019, which the White House said "requires the compensation of government employees for wages lost, work performed, or leave used during a lapse in appropriations that begins on or after December 22, 2018, and entitles excepted employees to use leave during a lapse in appropriations".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Trump should "see the pain" the shutdown is causing.

On Jan. 15, Lawrence tweeted: "I never said this by the way..." "Meanwhile, Leader McConnell, Senate Republicans are hiding in the shadows as if they have some kind of aversion to doing their job when it involves the slightest break with the president".
