Trump pledges to work with Democrats but demands wall

Democrats plan to pass legislation to reopen the government this evening in one of their first acts.

Also Thursday, House Judiciary Committee Democrats introduced legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired.

"I want everyone to take the time to understand what is going on, we are all affected by the shutdown, we all have skin in the game", Del Cueto said.

"A vote AGAINST the Democratic Rules package is a vote to let Mick Mulvaney make across the board cuts, unilaterally reversing Democratic initiatives and funding increases", he wrote, referring to the budget director and acting White House chief of staff.

"When they say the wall is immoral, well then you better - got to do something about the Vatican, because the Vatican has the biggest wall of them all", Trump said. -Mexican border wall - opposed by Democrats - as part of any legislation funding government agencies.

The Democratic package to end the shutdown would include one bill to temporarily fund the Department of Homeland Security at current levels - with $1.3 billion for border security, far less than Trump has said he wants for the wall - through February 8 as talks would continue. The Democratic spending plan would fund most of the USA government until September and the Department of Homeland Security until next month, reopening the government without funding the wall while negotiations on border spending continue.

The previous day, he had told reporters that the shutdown could last a "long time or could be quickly", adding that the wall is "too important of a subject to walk away from".

Democrats also approved, 241-190, a separate measure funding the Agriculture, Interior and other departments through September 30.

Almost 100 newly elected lawmakers are coming to the House and Senate - including those representing the 40 seats the Democrats picked up to sweep their party back into power in the House.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer urged Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to put the House Democratic package on the Senate floor and send it to the president, saying it would show Trump "the sweet light of reason".

With the support of her majority Democrats, Ms Pelosi - who is a controversial figure among Republicans - was able to comfortably beat her opponent, Republican majority leader Kevin McCarthy, to the prestigious position.

Trump is in a heated standoff with Democratic leaders right now over his push to get $5 billion for a border wall.

Democrats took back the house by a 235 to 199 margin after the November midterm elections.

But David Bier, an immigration policy analyst for the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, said there is little comparison between the demands for private security and border security. "We want to solve that issue". They have made it clear they will investigate every aspect of Mr Trump's businesses, his personal finances and his staff's contacts with foreigners.

While Pelosi says she knew this moment would arrive, it wasn't guaranteed. He said 99.9 percent it works.

But McConnell said previously that Senate Republicans would not approve a spending measure Trump does not support.

"Republican leadership felt betrayed, because they had negotiated in good faith and came to some conclusion on a way forward", said Steven Billet, a congressional expert at George Washington University.
