Democrats care more about keeping borders open than government

Thanks to a partial government shutdown over funding for his long-desired southern border wall, President Donald Trump will remain in Washington, D.C., for New Year's rather than attend a party at his South Florida Mar-a-Lago Club.

In a Friday morning tweetstorm, the president blamed "obstructionist Democrats" for not funding the wall, despite having Republican control of both houses of Congress until Democrats take over the House in 2019.

The Democratic leaders pledged not to appropriate a single dollar towards funding a wall, and Pelosi further promised to put forth a funding bill that does not include any of Trump's demands when she assumes the speakership in January.

Incoming White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney claimed there was a split among congressional leaders that is preventing a resolution to the partial government shutdown on its seventh day. His statements also come as Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill are embroiled in a public blame game over who is responsible for the government shutdown, as well as the release of a new poll that reveals more Americans blame Trump than the Democrats for the government shutdown.

Approximately 420,000 federal employees have been forced to work without pay during the holidays and another 380,000 are furloughed.

The Republican president also reiterated threats to cut off all U.S. aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, which he said were not doing anything to stop the flow of migrants toward the United States.

Hammill said 'given that the President has changed his position so many times, we would not consider any offers from the White House that the President has not publicly endorsed.

Police were also called to protesters setting up roadblocks near France's borders with Spain, Belgium, Italy and Germany. They have morphed into protests largely against President Emmanuel Macron's liberal economic reform policies.

In a reprise of his threat before the midterm elections to cut off aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador as a caravan of migrants was making its way toward the United States, Trump said that those three countries "are doing nothing for the United States but taking our money".

"They left town", he said of the Democrats during an appearance on "Fox & Friends".

Democrats brushed off the White House's attempt to cast blame. "The president, for better or worse, appears to be hoping to influence Democrats by at best threatening Mexico and at worst by holding a gun to the USA economy's head".

The House and the Senate convened for just minutes on Thursday before gaveling closed until next week.

"Call it anything", he added, "barrier, fence, I won't say the "w" word".

Pelosi and her lieutenants plan to pass a funding bill that could reopen the government as soon as new members are sworn in because they believe they have the upper hand in the shutdown fight, the website said. "We will be cutting off all aid to these 3 countries - taking advantage of USA for years!" he said.

As a result, he said, "we will be cutting off all aid" to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, impoverished, often unsafe countries where American assistance aims to boost democracy, human rights, education and security.
