No end for government shutdown after White House meeting

That deal has not been approved by Congress, which means the parameters of the pact are not in effect.

The second false point in Trump's Twitter post is his statement that "much of the Wall has already been fully renovated or built". This is also not true.

"We know that we have a challenge along the border", Mr McCarthy said.

Trump told reporters that he was willing to let the shutdown continue "as long as it takes" for him to get the funding for the wall. "It is not helping the president, it is not helping the Republicans to be the owner of this shutdown".

Trump had been scheduled to spend the holidays with his family at his private Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, but canceled the trip to wait out the partial government shutdown that began December 22. The Smithsonian Institution closed its museums and the National Zoo on Wednesday.

The growing impacts of the shutdown could create pressure on all sides to reach a resolution.

Congressional leaders were unable to strike a deal to end a partial shutdown of the federal government at a meeting with Donald Trump on Thursday, and the president invited them to return to the White House on Friday for further negotiations.

The victor of Group A will most likely face the defending champions Roger Federer and Belinda Bencic of Switzerland in the final. The world No.15 did not drop one service game against Muguruza and produced 15 winners and six aces to claim the first set.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) has sworn that Trump will "never" get money for the wall, while the most likely new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) repeatedly denounced Trump's wall as "immoral, ineffective and expensive".

The briefing is scheduled for 3 p.m. EST Wednesday, the day before Democrats assume control of the House. A White House official, one of two people who described that exchange only on condition of anonymity, said the president had been trying to explain that it would be foolish not to pay for border security.

Trump declined to speculate if he was willing to settle for a smaller amount than $5 billion, saying only that it was a small amount compared to what is needed to finish the wall - and what the country is losing every year due to illegal immigration.

According to the plan filed by the deputy White House chief of staff for operations with the budget office before the shutdown, more than 1,000 of 1,759 staff members in the Executive Office of the President were expected to be placed on furlough.

Alexandra Pelosi also said that her mother's leadership is coming at a very different time in politics as she applauded all of the women entering the 116th Congress.

Alexandra Pelosi's comments came just hours before her mother and other congressional leaders met with President Trump to discuss the ongoing government shutdown.

As a result, on December 22, about one-quarter of the government ran out of money. But Republican leaders in the House refused to hold a vote on the measure. Trump has mentioned the Vatican's centuries-old fortifications before, including at the earlier Cabinet meeting. He complained that Democrats interrupted Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen as she was trying to describe a terrible situation at the border. More important, what extra money does come in will be from tariffs, which are paid by people in the USA, not Mexico. The wall is a do or die issue for Trump. Since becoming president, though, he has shifted this promise, saying the money must come from US taxpayers. House Democrats plan to advance legislation that would reopen key parts of the government but provide Trump no new money for a wall - one of their first acts after taking control of the chamber on Thursday. But they have drawn the line at the use of any taxpayer money for the erection of a new wall. "That was 30 years ago", she said. The US$5.6 billion Trump is demanding would finance about 320km of wall, and less than 160km has already been constructed or renovated, according to Department of Homeland Security officials.
