Pelosi Clinches Speakership With Term-Limit Agreement

Pelosi Clinches Speakership With Term-Limit Agreement

Chuck Schumer, the senior Democrat in the Republican-dominated Senate, and Nancy Pelosi, who is likely to become speaker in the newly Democrat-controlled House in January, were meeting with Trump later on Tuesday.

Days after saying he would be "proud" to own a government shutdown over border security, President Trump on Thursday has tweeted out a video calling Democrats hypocrites - and saying he doesn't want a shutdown after all.

"We simply can not allow people to pour into the United States, undetected, undocumented, unchecked", Obama says before the camera returns to Trump, who then accuses Democrats of opposing his funding requests for the wall on personal animus.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday offered his first comment on a deadly attack at a Christmas market in France, using it as proof that increased security is required on his country's border with Mexico. Schumer accused Trump of throwing a "temper tantrum" during the meeting, while Pelosi dared Trump to "do it" and press ahead with the shutdown. Mr Trump cut off Ms Pelosi, arguing that he could not advance a funding bill without Democratic votes in the Senate.

"We're doing this in a very friendly manner", Trump said.

The president and top opposition congressional leaders had been meant to hold a reassuring Oval Office photo-op. While Trump's fellow Republicans control both the House and the Senate until next month, Democratic support is needed to pass any spending legislation.

Members of a caravan of Central American asylum seekers scale a wall at the US-Mexico border.

"The only obstacle is the president of the United States", she said, adding that she and Schumer were not negotiating with Trump on the wall request.

Trump vows to nominate Chief of Staff soon
Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) signaled his willingness to join the Trump administration as White House chief of staff . Meadows now chairs the House Freedom Caucus, making him the most conservative choice of those likely to run.

CNN anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon chuckled together about "NanChuck" taking on Trump over the wall.

President Donald Trump says the military will build his promised border wall "if Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country".

"Yes, we do", Schumer said.

When Democrats officially take control of the House of Representatives in January, they will start by seeking President Trump's tax returns. Since that fence already exists, many are against the idea of spending $5 billion more to build a wall. "You've got to have facts, data and evidence-based truth to make an agreement on how you go forward", she said. Homeland Security would be responsible for building the wall along the border with Mexico.

Trump is "certainly in a tough situation", says Dave Ray, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

"We should build it out", he said of the wall.

Thursday morning, Trump tweeted that Mexico would still technically pay for the wall, through the additional money the US will make from the not-yet-ratified United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade agreement.
