You're Not Getting Your Wall, Mr. President

‘Could be a while’: Trump refuses to budge in shutdown standoff Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez already has plans to defy Pelosi

"No, no. Nothing for the wall", Pelosi replied.

In accepting the gavel, Pelosi will give a nod to the new era of divided government with a pledge to "reach across the aisle in this chamber and across the divisions in this great nation, " according to excerpts of her prepared remarks Thursday.

Before the shutdown began on December 22, Trump said during a testy meeting with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, the Democratic senator for NY, that he would take responsibility for any federal government stoppage.

Even if Democrats believe some of Trump's actions, including Trump's reported hush money payments to women during the 2016 campaign, clear the threshold of "high crimes and misdemeanors", Pelosi has downplayed the prospects of impeachment.

When the 116th Congress is sworn in, one of the first votes they will take is on a rules package that will govern how Congress operates. And they are especially dubious of its necessity after congressional Republicans waived the law in 2017 to pass a tax bill that added more than $1.5 trillion to the federal deficit over its first decade.

Incoming chairpersons have signalled that Trump will face a barrage of probes that could lay bare alleged conflicts of interest, misuse of funds, and abuse of power by the president and members of his cabinet.

Alexandra Pelosi, the daughter of San Francisco congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), was hesitant to discuss her mother Wednesday on CNN's New Day with Alison Camerota and John Berman.

And they will continue their oversight of the Trump administration and Russian interference in the 2016 election. McConnell spokesperson Donald Stewart said Senate Republicans would not take action without Trump's backing.


"We have to wait and see what happens with the Mueller report".

"We asked him to give us one good reason-I asked him directly, I said 'Mr".

In addition, Democrats are eliminating a rarely used rule that allowed any lawmaker to file a motion to force a vote on ousting the speaker.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called the House Democrats' budget plan a "nonstarter" and urged them to get "serious" if they want to end the current deadlock. "In other words a total nonstarter", McConnell told the Senate, The Hill reported.

Well, the government shutdown has lasted over 12 days.

In an interview with USA Today, Pelosi says President Trump can expect a "different world" now that Democrats control the House.
