Trump Backs Off: 'Not Looking' To Declare National Emergency 'So Fast'

Posted January 12, 2019

The Senate did, however, approve back pay for the roughly 800,000 federal workers not receiving paychecks.

But the proposals are unlikely to get far.

Graham sounded deflated after talks among senators essentially collapsed, and said, "It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers" to fund wall construction.

The partial government shutdown began because of the border security dispute on December 22.

Has Trump changed his pledge on funding the wall?

That was indeed true, as McCarthy and general manager John Dorsey are extremely close from their years together in Green Bay. National Football League head coaching vacancies have started to get filled up, but Mike McCarthy remains on the market.

Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-N.Y.) was among those who condemned the reports of Trump's plans.

"House Democrats have passed bills to reopen the government. I hope it works".

One major airport, Miami International, has said it will close an entire terminal this weekend because so many security staff are off sick. "This is what you proposed". "It would be an incredible disservice to the American people and the economy" to divert the money to the border wall, he said.

In the meantime, the administration has taken steps to lay the groundwork should Trump issue the declaration. "Yet the Democrats continue to dig in their heels and not budge".

He suggested that if he can not reach an agreement with House Democrats on funding the border wall, he would declare a national emergency. The bills would have approved new funding and reopened the federal government without the $5.7 billion Trump seeks for the border wall. He's stressed the importance of having a border wall during Cabinet discussions and press conferences.

Following the president's Tuesday night Oval Office address about the wall, Neguse showed no sign he was ready to give in to the president's demands.

On Capitol Hill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the president of engaging in political games to fire up his most loyal supporters, suggesting that a heated meeting Wednesday with legislators at the White House had been "a setup" so that Trump could walk out of it.

"The entire airline industry is united in calling on the President and Congress to immediately end the shutdown", she wrote in a tweet.

But those funds couldn't go to the border wall, either.

Sitting among border patrol officers, state and local officials and military representatives, Trump insisted he was "winning" the shutdown fight and criticized Democrats for asserting he was manufacturing a sense of crisis in order to declare an emergency. The bill now heads to President Donald Trump, who is expected to sign it. He had made an earlier attempt to avert the government shutdown, such as a short-term spending bill to fund the government through February 8. Democrats, including freshmen members of the House and Senate, have not indicated they're prepared to support the wall.
