  • Donald Trump threatens emergency powers to pay for wall

"We have to recognize something because my head's going to explode", Deutsch said during a discussion on Thursday's edition of Morning Joe.

The Senate approved a bill by voice vote to provide back pay to federal workers now on furlough or working without pay when the government shutdown ends.

Democrats, who have a majority in the House, refuse to pass a budget that allocates any funding to the wall specifically, which they argue is expensive, ineffective, and a political gimmick responding to a border security crisis that does not exist.

Mr. Trump and congressional Democrats are now at an impasse over the partial government shutdown, with Mr. Trump refusing to sign any legislation which does not provide funding for a border wall. Trump took issue with that characterization, denying that he acted out of anger. Trump wants $5.7 billion from Congress to fund his wall along the southern border with Mexico.

Donald Trump threatens emergency powers to pay for wall

The shutdown, which began on December 22, will be the longest in U.S. history if it is still going on by Saturday.

Trump has started to claim that he never said during his election campaign that Mexico would directly pay for the wall: "Obviously, I never said this, and I never meant they're going to write out a check", the president told reporters at the White House on Thursday. To that end, White House officials in recent days have pointed to remarks by Schumer during the Obama administration endorsing lawmakers' allocation of funds for border fencing. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump abruptly left a meeting after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats would not fund the wall.

But the President still has a critical mass of congressional Republicans supporting him and McConnell has remained firm in saying he will only take up legislation to reopen government that the President backs. But she did say it would be "irresponsible" of Trump. Lindsey Graham's office on Wednesday to discuss a way out of the logjam. The plan is in its very early stages, however, and its chances of success are still uncertain at best. The group that convened included Sens. "He's winning here. You have to understand he's gonna open the government".

"I think the way out has been apparent for several weeks", he told reporters. "It requires an agreement between a Democratic House, the Democrats in the Senate and the President".
