President Trump urges Democrats to 'come back from vacation' to make deal

Congress is in recess for the New Year's holiday but will reopen on Thursday, while Trump has stayed in the White House through the year-end festivities, shelving his annual vacation to his private Florida golf resort amid the impasse.

The president also signaled he was in no rush to seek a resolution, welcoming the fight as he heads toward his own bid for re-election in 2020.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway took aim at Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Sunday, blasting the soon-to-be Speaker of the House for abrogating her duty to work with the White House to end a partial government shutdown, and instead spending time relaxing at a pricey hotel on Hawaii's big island.

As always, Trump is inclined to believe that he's winning whenever he's dominating discourse with his opinions and behavior, however unusual and reprehensible they may seem. President Donald Trump shows no sign of caving as shutdown continues, however. This is according to an aide who was not authorized to discuss the plan publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. He tweeted Thursday evening that Democrats may be able to block him now, "but we have the issue, Border Security. I have nothing but compassion for them, the young kids", Kelly told the LA Times adding that many had been manipulated by traffickers.

Democrats maintain that they have already presented the White House with three options to end the shutdown, none of which funds the wall, and insist that it's Trump's move. Richard Shelby, who chairs the Appropriations Committee that is responsible for the funding, said on CBS' Face the Nation on Sunday.

He said the hardline approach to illegal immigration that had seen children separated from their parents at the border was the brainchild of ex-attorney-general Jeff Sessions, who "surprised us" by announcing the move.

"Now we have to do it the hard way, with a Shutdown". The California Democrat is confident she has the support needed to win.

A turbulent year is coming to a close in Washington with the 10th day of a partial federal government shutdown and no signs of progress toward a spending deal that President Donald Trump would be willing to sign.

Trump again threatens to close southern USA border over wall funding
But, with political opposition and public support possibly waning, the path ahead to making it a reality looks bumpier than ever. Democrats will not consider any offers that have not been publicly endorsed by Trump himself, he said.

"Democrats plan to pass a stopgap spending bill to fund the Homeland Security Department through February 8", the Washington Post reported Monday. They would provide money through the remainder of the fiscal year, to September 30.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The president shut down the government, demanding $5 billion for his border wall but Democrats have refused to meet the demand.

Opponents - especially in the Democratic party but also some in Trump's Republican party - say that a physical wall is impractical and that the idea is being used as a political tool to whip up xenophobia in Trump's right-wing voter base. They have largely left the negotiations to Trump and Democrats, and it's unclear if McConnell would consider any of the bills the House, under Pelosi, could pass. The Republican-controlled Senate is very unlikely to take up any bill that Trump hasn't preapproved, so the shutdown will drag on.

Republicans appear to be preparing the ground for Individual 1 to back down to congressional Democrats with some integrity intact.

Thus, even if both chambers do ultimately pass a funding measure that does not contain wall funding, a presidential veto would keep the government closed, since Trump nearly certainly retains enough support in both chambers for his wall plans to sustain a veto, at least for now. "I don't even want to think about that".
