Fox Business Host Says Nancy Pelosi 'Whipped' Donald Trump Over Government Shutdown

Mulvaney also stated Trump hopes to obtain funding for the barrier "the right way" but would still consider a shutdown or declaring a national emergency to achieve his goal.

Face The Nation host Margaret Brennan asked Mulvaney if the president was "really prepared" to shut down the government again in three weeks.

Waltz, (R-Fla.), said he believes many freshman Democrats in Congress will come to the table to negotiate on border security. "Regardless of what they try and say and the tears that stream down their cheeks, they did nothing to protect the American people".

Mulvaney said the president didn't want another shutdown, but he would do it if necessary. "He does take this very seriously". The short-term bill that Trump signed Friday reopening government will lapse February 15.

White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Sunday that President Donald Trump would be willing to shut down the government again to acquire funding for an expanded border barrier.

"And you know, the important thing, I think, to remember here is, Democrats and Republicans cannot only reach an agreement on border security, we already have multiple times".

California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the leading Republican in the House, said Democrats have funded border barriers in the past and are refusing this time simply because Trump is asking for it.

At the top of Democrats' agenda is a package of government-overhaul measures in a bill called H.R. 1, which 100 candidates said in a letter past year they wanted to be one of the first orders of business.

The acting White House chief of staff also said Trump would stay firm in his demand for $5.7 billion to build his border wall.

Trump's consideration of such action comes as conservative commentators have lashed out at Trump and said he gave in to top Democrats on Friday, and as special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election has moved deeper into Trump's inner circle, raising questions about the future of his presidency.

Kirsten Gillibrand plays Colbert card but still gets little 2020 attention
It's absolutely fair to ask if Gillibrand will appeal to voters-based on her policy positions, experience, and personality. Kirsten Gillibrand announced on Tuesday that she is forming an exploratory committee to consider a 2020 presidential bid.

The editors lamented that everyone knew the shutdown would end badly, adding the president had no one but himself to blame.

Even so, after the performances by Pelosi and Trump, it was Republicans who seemed more concerned about the potential reverberations.

After polls showed Americans increasingly blamed Trump for the situation, the president on Friday signed a measure to fund the government for three weeks as congressional negotiators try to work out a bill to fully fund agencies through September 30.

"Schumer said that while Democrats oppose the wall money, they agree on other ways to secure the border "and that bodes well for coming to an eventual agreement".

As part of the deal, a bipartisan committee of House and Senate lawmakers is being formed to review border security recommendations.

Pressure mounted on Trump as the shutdown was threatening the economy and left 800,000 federal workers missing a second paycheque on Friday.

Mulvaney brushed back claims that Trump caved to Democrats after saying for 35 days he would not give in unless he got cash for the wall.

Trump's announcement that he would sign a temporary spending bill without securing money for a border wall was met with backlash from conservatives, with immigration hard-liner Ann Coulter calling him the "biggest wimp ever to serve as president".

Trump argued on Sunday that illegal immigration was costing the country tens of billions of dollars a month, although it was not clear on what data he was basing his estimate.
