On Day 28, no sign of end to US partial government shutdown

On Day 28, no sign of end to US partial government shutdown

Donald Trump, the whiskers writes at the end of the economy on its flags - but business leaders and other experts first, serious problems on the economy, triggered by the Shutdown.

The House has passed spending bills that would fund the government but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has refused to take up the bills.

Apart from this, the fact that yet another official, the Indian origin deputy spokesperson to the White House, Raj Shah, resigned sets the second half of Trump's presidential stint to a rough start. "Re-open the government!".

"We'll have to have a security evaluation, but that would mean diverting resources", she told reporters when asked how she would respond if Trump still intended to come. Trump allies say that he will win credit for fighting to fulfill a promise Trump he made to voters as a 2016 candidate.

Perdue says the USDA is examining its "legal authorities" to ensure it's providing services to its customers during the partial government shutdown, now the longest in USA history.

Trump declined to address the conflict during a visit Thursday to the Pentagon, saying only that he's determined to ensure the US has "powerful, strong border security".

The government shutdown is leaving an increasingly deep impact across the country, where Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, museum workers, Coast Guard personnel and other officials are either not at work or having to work for nothing.

But the White House quickly learned the limits of that approach.

And even though the trip involved travelling into a war zone, Trump insisted the Democrats would be welcome to go ahead with their itinerary - on their own dime.

This, in the wake of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's suggestion Wednesday that the address be postponed or relegated to being done in writing due to the partial government shutdown, now in its 27th day.

About 800,000 federal workers have been forced to take leave of absence or are working without pay.

Phillips said the group was not there to negotiate but "to better understand each other, which I think we did ... and perhaps provide a little bit of daylight through which we can walk".

In a notice to staff posted online and sent to employees, the department said it had found money to pay most of its employees beginning Sunday or Monday for their next pay period.

Trump's note seemed like a snide attempt at clapping back at the Speaker for suggesting that he cancel his State of the Union address.

The annual speech is perhaps the president's biggest opportunity to present his agenda directly to the public.

Pelosi's accusation came as the Trump administration barred US congressional travel on government-owned or operated aircraft during the partial government shutdown, with tensions skyrocketing between the Democratic-majority House of Representatives and the Republican White House.

The White House hosted a bipartisan group of lawmakers, followed by a group of Republican senators, on the 26th day of the shutdown, with no sign of breaking through the impasse over Trump's demands for $5.7 billion to build a wall along the Mexican border.

Trump on Monday rejected calls from one of his top Republican aides to temporarily reopen the government.

Over the years there have been varying opinions about the a necessity of building border walls.

Instead, the president's top aides on Wednesday said they are focused on the "long-term" health of the economy, which has shown signs of slowing in recent months as some economists warn that clouds of recession could be forming.
