Trump takes aim at Pelosi amid stalled shutdown negotiations

Trump takes aim at Pelosi amid stalled shutdown negotiations

But Democrats dismissed the offer as non-starter, calling on Trump to re-open the government first.

"It is imperative Speaker Pelosi and the House Democrat majority come to the negotiating table, consider the President's proposal, and actually have a conversation".

During the address at the White House, Trump proposed extending protections for roughly 700,000 "Dreamers", the children of illegal migrants brought into the USA, under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme for three years. A Senate victory for Trump, however, could force new negotiations over his border wall plan and over reopening the government, where 800,000 federal workers, furloughed or forced to work without being paid, are set to miss their second paycheck next Friday. On Twitter, he criticized Democrats for campaigning on "working within Washington and 'getting things done!' How's that working out?"

President Donald Trump is lashing out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for rejecting his proposal to exchange temporary protections for some immigrants for $5.7 billion for his border wall. As a counter, President Trump denied Pelosi and other politicians the use of military aircraft to travel overseas to Afghanistan.

US President Donald Trump makes an announcement on the budget, the government shutdown, immigration and the border.

"We would love to have a permanent fix" for people eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals as well as immigrants with Temporary Protected Status "just as he wants a permanent wall", said Representative Jim Clyburn of SC, the No. 3 House Democrat.

Dreamers, who are mostly Hispanic young adults, were given authorization to work and protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which Trump rescinded in 2017, but which remains in place under a court order.

The Trump administration also provided money for states to administer food stamps through February, but has said it can not guarantee benefits would continue should the shutdown stretch into March.

The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) says unscheduled absences among its staff, who are required to work without pay during the shutdown, rose to a record 10 percent. Under DACA, young people who arrived in the United States illegally by 2007 and were under 16 by that time are granted two-year renewable permits to work and live in the country.

Alleged R. Kelly Victims to Present Evidence for Prosecution for Sexual Abuse
Kelly, who turned 52 on Tuesday, then yells, "Y'all motherf**kers don't know". "The recent allegations against entertainer R. In 2002, he was arrested after a video surfaced appearing to show him having sex with and urinating on a 14-year-old girl.

Many, including Vice President Mike Pence, have defined the word "amnesty" as permanent status or a pathway to citizenship for immigrants in the country illegally.

Trump's offer, followed by its swift rejection by Democrats and the hard right, left the shutdown looking as intractable as ever - even while serving as evidence that Republicans are growing uneasy about allowing the shutdown to continue indefinitely.

Saturday's speech was largely addressed to his political rivals in the Democratic Party, who took control of the House of Representatives in the November midterm elections and challenged his tough stance on immigration.

"We would love to have a permanent fix for DACA and TPS just as he wants a permanent wall", House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said on CBS' "Face the Nation". "Walls are not immoral, in fact it is the opposite of immoral", Mr. Trump said. "I intend to move to this legislation this week".

It was Trump's most direct attack on Pelosi since the partial government shutdown began, and appeared to reflect a mounting sense of frustration.

"It is a compassionate response to the ongoing tragedy at our southern border", Mr. Trump said about his planned deal, said he hoped "Democrat lawmakers" would provide "their enthusiastic support".

'Trump proposes amnesty. We voted for Trump and got Jeb!,' conservative author Ann Coulter complained on Twitter Saturday. The president had indicated he would sign temporary funding measures to keep the government open, but then he faced a backlash in conservative media over it.

"If he opens the government, we'll discuss whatever he offers, but hostage taking should not work", Schumer said as he pushed legislation that would protect government workers who can't pay their bills because of the government shutdown.
