With no negotiations expected during the weekend, the shutdown will enter its fourth week next week.

He said he is in the White House waiting for Democrats to come and make a deal.

Around a quarter of the federal government remains out of operation, with 800,000 employees unpaid for more than three weeks. I will be the one to shut it down.

Vice President Mike Pence said Trump will sign legislation passed in Congress that will provide back pay to federal workers once the government reopens.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., also called for the president to reopen the government before debating the issue of border security."What we don't want to do is waste taxpayer money on a vanity project that's ineffective, that the president said Mexico would pay for", Kaine said on "Meet the Press". He said the failure by Democrats may leave President Trump no other choice but to declare a national emergency.

Farmers have supported Trump through a trade war with China that cost them billions, but they are complaining about the loss of loans, payments and other agricultural services because of the shutdown.

Politicians are due back in Washington from their states and congressional districts in the new week. Lawmakers adjourned for the weekend but will return to Washington on Monday.

"But to understand that plan you would have to understand the fact that I won the election, and I promised. a Wall at the Southern Border". As for Independent voters, 53% of them blame the Republicans while only 23% of Independents blame the Democrats, and 17% blame both parties equally. "[House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and [Senate Minority Leader Charles] Schumer are not willing to negotiate at all".

Meanwhile, a Trump ally says the president isn't giving in on his demands for a border wall.

The last week has been contentious between Republicans and Democrats, as witnessed Wednesday when Trump walked out of a White House meeting with congressional leadership after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the president "no" she would not support funding a border wall. "[White House] but me, and I do have a plan on the Shutdown", Trump said. "And so in order to survive, he is taking positions and doing things that you and I would think make no sense at all, and don't fit everything we know about him as a person, but it fits what he thinks he needs to do in order to survive". Trump said in a separate tweet.

Mr Trump has maintained that the border can not be secured without a wall.

An effort by GOP senators led by Graham for a compromise deal that provided both border wall funding as well as immigration provisions appealing to Democrats stalled on Thursday as the President was not in favor, according to two people directly involved. Instead, McConnell last week vowed to stand with Trump in the wall debate, after the president met with all Senate Republicans and pleaded for party unity behind his wall quest. Those civil asset forfeiture funds, held by the Department of Justice and the Treasury Department, generate billions of dollars annually, he said.

Senator Lindsey Graham, who is close to Mr Trump, said a limited re-opening of a few weeks would allow talks to resume between Republicans and Democrats. "This is money that would otherwise have gone to the cartels".
