The Matador & the Bull: Pelosi Outplays Trump in Ending Gov’t Shutdown

Trump signed a bill ensuring funding until February 15

The White House denied on Sunday that Donald Trump "caved" to Democrats in reopening the federal government despite not receiving any funding for a border wall - a deal Trump had vowed he would never make.

He hinted that he might declare a national emergency to bypass Congress for wall funding or let the government shut down again, should negotiations fail once more.

Gidley said that Trump had repeatedly asked for the sort of border funding that USA security officials said they needed, only to encounter intransigent Democrats in Congress.

"It's still better to get it through legislation", Mulvaney said on "Fox News Sunday".

Although not a fan of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the Wall Street Journal gave her credit for bringing the government shutdown to an end - by making President Donald Trump blink first and cave over his border wall.

However, Scalise said the president could deliver the State of the Union early next week, and that it should be done in the House.

When will they get paid?

"I don't see this as any power play", she told reporters Friday. "What we want to support over the next few weeks is 21st century border security".

"They're both big issues, solve them right now, " McCarthy said.

At the top of Democrats' agenda is a package of government-overhaul measures in a bill called H.R. 1, which 100 candidates said in a letter previous year they wanted to be one of the first orders of business. "Just putting money toward a structure is not going to the job", he said.

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Sunday showed that Trump's approval rating remained steady throughout the shutdown, despite more Americans placing the blame on him rather than Congress.

"If we don't get a fair deal from Congress, the government will either shut down on February 15, again, or I will use the powers afforded to me under the laws and constitution of the United States to address this emergency", Trump said.

"Shutdowns are not legitimate negotiating tactics when there's a public policy disagreement between two branches of government", he said.

Still, Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said that "absolutely nothing" was accomplished by the government shutdown and that it shouldn't be used in future to achieve policy goals.

It seems, Roberts added, that "a lot of Democrats think that he capitulated here because he really came away from 35 days of a government shutdown with nothing more than he could've had at least two weeks ago, when Sen". The bill he signed did not provide the money Trump wanted for a barrier, which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called "immoral" and has insisted Congress will not finance. But three former Trump aides tell Politico they don't quite buy that interpretation considering how the president ended up having to give in on everything.

"The president of the United States made a condition precedent that that border funding would be there, he withdrew that condition precedent", Dobbs stated firmly.

But Mulvaney breezed past the plight of contractors in his response, noting that the roughly 800,000 federal employees stung by the shutdown would likely receive retroactive pay in the coming days.

"But yeah, it takes a lot of energy to fight just for the basics of keeping government open on one hand and then try to pursue an agenda that voters sent us here to pursue on the other".
