Trump blames Dems, but public faults prez on shutdown, polls show

2 monthes ago   |   By

President Trump Ally Lindsey Graham Advises Reopening the Government to Continue Wall Negotiations

2 monthes ago   |   By

A Republican lawmaker advising President Donald Trump said he is encouraging the president to reopen the government for several weeks to continue negotiating with Democrats over funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall before the president takes the more drastic step of declaring a national emergency.
But that may be wishful thinking, given that Sen. Lindsey Graham also says Trump still wants to reach a deal for the wall before agreeing to reopen shuttered government departments. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a leading Democratic negotiator, insists that Trump reopen the government first.
