Federal Employee Union: This Is 'Not About a Wall'

"At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about". Democrats have offered $1.3 billion for other border security measures.

US President Donald Trump is visiting troops in Iraq, while the US government remains partially shut down. "I can tell you it's not going to be open until we have a wall or fence, whatever they'd like to call it".

Trump made these remarks while taking questions from reporters during a briefing with USA military leaders shortly after landing in Iraq. Some 800,000 federal workers must either work without pay for the time being, or stay home and wait to be paid later. He now regrets going against his instincts a year ago when he approved a plan to send thousands more troops to Afghanistan at the urging of foreign policy advisers, said a person familiar with the process. "Nothing new, except we need border security", he told reporters Monday at the White House while participating in the annual tradition of answering telephone calls from children anxious to know when Santa will get to their homes. Promises kept. "President Trump believes one of his strengths is he is actually doing the things he told people he would do", said Marc Lotter, a member of Trump's 2020 advisory committee and former spokesman for Vice President Mike Pence.

He's got four of the belts but if I'm mandatory for one or two of them and he doesn't fight me, they will strip him at some point. Despite claims in some quarters over Fury's unavailability for a rematch, Wilder insists he will be fighting Fury next.

December 25 marks the fourth day of the latest government shutdown, sparked by a row between Republicans and Democrats over funding for Trump's southern border wall. They are eager to get back to work.

Several hundred thousand U.S. government employees across numerous agencies are working without pay, while others have been sent hom on furlough.

The stock market malaise comes with Trump refusing to sign a budget bill to keep the government funded as he demands $5 billion for a US-Mexico border wall - a pillar of his election platform.

He noted that companies in 11 other nations-including Japan, the United Kingdom and India-were targeted by APT 10. The ministry emphasized that the Chinese government had never been engaged in theft of commercial data.

"These federal workers want the wall". Many national parks across the country have also been closed, and the Internal Revenue Service planned to close taxpayer assistance lines, among other operations, weeks ahead of filing season.

Nancy Pelosi, who takes over next month as House speaker, and Chuck Schumer, the top Democrat in the Republican-led Senate, complained that White House aides were giving inconsistent messages on what Trump would accept to restart the government. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of government workers will either not return to work after the holiday or have to work without pay. "The only one that doesn't want the wall are the Democrats".

Lawmakers have limited the administration to replacing or strengthening existing barrier designs, rather than building Trump's new wall prototypes. "Do I think the dynamics are going to change much come the new year?"

USA government shuts down at midnight as House adjourns with no deal
Some Republicans senators cheered on the House, but prospects in the Senate are grim amid strong opposition from Democrats. The Senate passed a spending bill earlier this week that did not provide any funding for a border wall .

Trump followed up on a Monday tweet in which he said he "just gave out a 115 mile long contract for another large section of the Wall in Texas".
