American Senator Chuck Schumer calls Trump wall threat 'temper tantrum'

Whatever happened to trying to impeach President Donald Trump? As House Democrats begin laying out the vision for their new majority that item is noticeably missing from the to-do list and firmly on the margins

Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that she hoped that Mr. Trump would not allow a government shutdown over funding for the border wall.

Pelosi's acceptance of the plan comes after a coalition of Democrats said they would not vote for her, calling for new leadership in the top ranks of the party.

"We are proud that our agreement will make lasting institutional change that will strengthen our caucus and will help develop the next generation of Democratic leaders", the rebellious lawmakers said in a written statement. "I will take the mantle".

But Pompeo did not answer on whether Mexico will pay for the wall - a favorite line of Trump at his rallies - and said he was working with Mexico to prevent emigration at its source in conflict-ridden El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

Hours ahead of a White House summit with Democratic leaders, President Donald Trump on Tuesday demanded funding for his long-promised wall along the USA southern border in a series of tweets filled with inaccuracies. "I will be the one to shut it down". Trump cut off Pelosi, arguing that he could not advance a funding bill without Democratic votes in the Senate. But Trump's rhetoric is an indication the president may be coming to terms with a scenario in which Democrats won't accept his demand to fund the project. According to California Democrat, it was pure Trump. Chuck and Nancy must give us the votes to get additional Border Security!,' he said.

With the loss, the Bulls dropped to 6-21 on the season. "It's starting to be fun". "You play happier, you play freer". Instead, they held multiple meetings, one with just players, and one that also included the coaching staff.

Prior to Tuesday's public spat, Trump said the military would build his promised border wall if Congress did not sign off his funding proposal.

During the White House meeting, Pelosi and Schumer, a New York Democrat, referenced the possible government freeze as a "Trump shutdown".

If Pelosi should run for speaker again in 2020 (assuming Democrats retain the majority) she'll need approval of two-thirds of the Democratic caucus, under the agreement she reached with her former opponents.

Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to become Speaker of the House when Democrats take over the chamber next month, mocked Mr Trump at a later meeting with colleagues on Capitol Hill. It goes to show you: "You get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you", the BBC reported.

"It's like a manhood thing for him".

Whitaker is now serving as acting attorney general until the Senate confirms Trump's choice of William Barr to take the job. Last week, Trump tweeted that he hopes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will hold a vote on the legislation.

"We're doing this in a very friendly manner", Trump said, as Vice President Mike Pence sat beside him, silent and stony-faced.

Hours before the meeting, Mr Trump tweeted that "the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall".

Congress is seeking to finalise spending before some federal government funding expires on 21 December.

Trump has said that his proposed wall would prevent drug dealers and criminals from infiltrating the country.
