The Senate's top Democrat met Friday with President Donald Trump in an eleventh-hour bid to fund the government as a midnight deadline rapidly approached.

The U.S. government shut down as senators failed to reach a deal on a short-term stopgap budget measure that didn't include any resolution for the rescinded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

"Not looking good for our great Military or Safety & Security on the very unsafe Southern Border", he tweeted, citing some of the government projects and agencies that will find themselves unfunded.

"Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown", said Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. "The discussions will continue".

"Democrats can't shut down the booming Trump economy".

"There's a really good chance it gets fixed" before government offices open on Monday, Mulvaney added. Under Senate rules it would require 60 votes for passage. It lasted three days and 80,000 people in IL were furloughed. A last-minute meeting between the president and Sen. He said he "reluctantly" offered concessions on Trump's long-sought border wall with Mexico in exchange for strong protections for young immigrants.

As the deadline approached, Senate Republicans forced a vote to try to keep the government open until February 16, knowing that they didn't have support to get the deal through, using it as a way to place blame on Democrats.

It was also revealed that Paddock didn't leave a suicide note and did not seem to have any involvement with hate groups. Danley's lawyer, Matthew Lombard in Los Angeles, did not immediately respond to telephone and email messages Tuesday.


The problem? That bill doesn't address a solution to protect undocumented immigrants who were brought here illegally as kids.

In the Oval Office, munching on the burgers presumably prepared by the White House kitchen, the two men seemed at first to have come to an agreement on a temporary spending bill to continue funding the government.

A short-term government shutdown will likely have minimal impact, especially if only over a weekend.

If the shutdown extends until Monday, nearly half of the 2 million civil federal workers will be prevented from doing their jobs. Military active duty personnel will remain on the job, and on duty in combat zones, but will experience a lapse in pay.

In the event of a shutdown, the Interior Department plans to keep national parks and other public lands accessible. The Senate needed 60 votes to pass the measure. The House of Representatives approved the bill Thursday with nothing but Republican votes.

Negotiations with the White House on a bipartisan compromise on DACA blew up last week after Trump reportedly referred to African nations and Haiti as "shithole countries". Chuck Schumer (D-NY) did not end with an actionable deal.

In return, Mr Schumer pointed the finger directly at Mr Trump. However, a new CNN poll finds that, while the DACA program is popular among both Democrats and Republicans, 56 percent of Americans say avoiding a shutdown is more important.
