"It's time for the Democrats to come to the table and make a deal".

"I do think if we reopen the government, if the president ends this shutdown crisis, we have folks who can negotiate a responsible, modern investment in technology that will actually make us safer", Democratic Senator Chris Coons of DE said on Fox.

He noted that some House Democrats have signaled that they would be open to compromise, including funding Trump's long-promised border barrier.

Democrat leaders refused to participate in a working lunch with President Donald Trump on January 15, instead boycotting the meeting amid the ongoing partial government shutdown.

During a closed-door meeting with Democratic leadership Monday night, Pelosi even jokingly encouraged the encounter, according to an aide in the room. "I'd like to see us have a breakthrough here". "He made a joke that was sexist about women". "I'll pay for it, no problem", Strahan answered.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took issue with McConnell's finger pointing. "I applaud the president for standing tough".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said instead of a bipartisan lunch, nine House Republicans are confirmed to attend.

With no breakthrough in sight, the White House planned further meetings with rank-and-file lawmakers Wednesday, though few saw those sessions as likely to budge either side. "That's how bad his operation is being run right now", he said.

But on Tuesday, there was an updated figure: 0.13 percentage point every week because of the impact of work left undone by 380,000 furloughed employees as well as work left aside by federal contractors, a White House official said.

In a letter to the president, Pelosi said the annual remarks would place an undue burden on the departments responsible for security at the event, as a result of the record shutdown that began on 22 December over Trump's demand for a border wall. "300 hamburgers, many, many french fries - all of our favorite foods".

The House plans to vote this week on two measures to reopen the government, funding shuttered agencies at current levels through February.

Trump has resisted the temptation, and appeared no closer on Monday to taking it.

Earlier Sunday, Graham had told Fox News Sunday he would still support a presidential emergency declaration to build the border wall without congressional authorization after giving talks another chance.
