Sarah Sanders Torches Senate Democrats For Not Protecting Americans

Looking for a way to claim victory, Trump said he would accept money for a "Steel Slat Barrier" with spikes on the top, which he said would be just as effective as a "wall" and "at the same time attractive".
On Wednesday, lawmakers approved a stopgap spending bill that would keep federal agencies open until February 8 next year, but the agreement did not include funding for the wall Trump wants to construct along the Mexican border.
On Friday, the Senate-after keeping the vote open for hours while senators negotiated-finally voted to approve the motion to proceed onto the bill that the House passed.
One possibility was that the Senate might strip the border wall funds out of the package, pass it and send it back to the House.
The White House on Saturday reiterated that Trump was still pressing for $5 billion for a wall or barrier along the border with Mexico and other security enhancements.

Operations for several key agencies ceased at 12:01am Saturday, despite last-ditch talks that continued on Capitol Hill between White House officials and congressional leaders in both parties.
Talks between Trump's team and Republican and Democratic leaders were expected to continue over the weekend.
"The Democrats, whose votes we need in the Senate, will probably vote against Border Security and the Wall even though they know it is DESPERATELY NEEDED", Trump said in a Friday morning Twitter post.
Vice President Mike Pence, Mr Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney left the Capitol late on Friday after hours of bargaining with congressional leaders produced no apparent compromise.

Butina also faces the possibility she will be deported after she serves any prison sentence the judge choses to impose. The court has not yet set a sentencing date, but set a status hearing for February 12, the Washington Post reported.
Some agencies, including the Pentagon and the departments of Veterans Affairs and Health and Human Services, were already funded and will operate as usual. "President Trump has said more than 25 times that he wanted a shutdown and now he has gotten what he wanted".
'PROUD' Whenever there is a government shutdown, Republicans and Democrats typically fight to blame each other. "I'll be the one to shut it down".
The shutdown could persist at least until a new Congress convenes on Jan 3, and Democrats take control of the House from Republicans.
The President urged GOP lawmakers to "go nuclear" and bypass a potential Democratic filibuster Friday, but was largely rebuked by Sen.
"We had a reasonable path and there was every indication from the president that he would sign it", Alexander said.
USA military calls off search for missing Marines
A multinational effort to find survivors included U.S., Japanese and Australian aircraft and U.S. and Japanese ships. Two pilots of the F/A-18 fighter jet were rescued after the accident, but one of them later died.
Trump also encouraged McConnell, R-Ky., to change the Senate's rules in order to pass the spending bill, lowering the threshold for ending debate on legislation from 60 votes to 51, as it now stands for judicial appointments.
More than half of the 1,700 people who work for the executive office of the president would be "furloughed", meaning they would be put on temporary leave.
Most of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will be sent on unpaid leave, including those who assist taxpayers with queries.
Federal parks closed and more than 400,000 federal "essential" employees in those agencies will work without pay until the dispute is resolved. "I call them 'fake shutdowns'". We can't travel far or plan a vacation during a shutdown because we usually only get a day's notice or less to report back to work.
McConnell quickly set in motion a Senate procedural vote on a House Republican package that would give Trump $5.7 billion for the wall, but it was not expected to pass.

At the same time, analysts said they were relieved that the Trump-Xi meeting at least pressed the "pause" button on tariff hikes. Currently, the automobile industry in the United States is not performing well because of the trade war issues with China.
The increases come after the USA and China said they had agreed to not increase tariffs for 90 days to allow for talks. China also will make fentanyl, a deadly synthetic opioid, a controlled substance, the White House said.
