John Kelly embarrasses Donald Trump in White House exit interview

On Sunday, the Los Angeles Times published a two-hour interview with Kelly in which he told the paper "to be honest, it's not a wall". Recently, Trump has taken to describing a wall made of "steel slats".

His comments, the first to reference the children's deaths, came the same day Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was finishing a two-day visit to the southern USA border, where she said in a statement, "The system is clearly overwhelmed and we must work together to address this humanitarian crisis". "What we're talking about is a physical barrier where it makes sense".

Mr Trump was cooped up in the White House after cancelling a vacation to his private Florida club.

The partial government shutdown, which began on December 22, was precipitated by Trump's demand, under pressure from conservative commentators, that lawmakers approve US$5 billion to help fund a wall that was a key part of his 2016 presidential campaign, though he said at the time that it would be paid for by Mexico.

"This is the same president who repeatedly promised the American people that Mexico would pay for the wall that he plans to build", New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries said on ABC's This Week program.

"There may be a wall in some places".

Unwilling or unable to pick one objection to Trump's border wall proposal, they have panned it as "immoral, ineffective and expensive" as well as "fifth-century technology".

Costello, indeed, believes Democrats are dug in on the border wall - and unlikely to cave.

It will include one bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security at current levels through February 8, with $1.3 billion for border security.

When contacted by the New York Post to respond to Conway's comments, Pelosi's office was slightly more forthcoming. The measure will be based on bipartisan draft Senate bills. It did not supply the $5bn in funding for a wall that he has since demanded. "And I just don't see how House Democrats are going to vote for any more border funding for a wall".

The report claims that the 31-year-old is leaving as Chelsea have a policy of providing one-year extensions to players over 30. Chelsea attacker Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly on the radar of Bayern Munich ahead of the January transfer window.

"I know there's some Democrats out there who would be willing to provide money for wall border security if we could deal with the DACA population and TPS people, and hopefully we can get some serious discussions started", Graham told reporters at the White House.

"Our negotiations are at an impasse at the moment", said Sen.

Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby said Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation" that the House votes "would be probably an empty gesture. If we blame each other, this could last a long, long time".

Graham proposed to help two groups of immigrants get approval to continue living in the U.S: about 700,000 young "Dreamers" brought into the USA illegally as children and about 400,000 people receiving temporary protected status because they are from countries struggling with natural disasters or armed conflicts. But Democrats are wary of entering into any immigration deal with Trump after previous talks linking the fate of dreamers to wall funding collapsed.

- If the shutdown standoff continues, all workers in the departments and agencies affected by the closing will miss their next paycheck on January 11.

The partial government shutdown is in its second week over Trump's demand for US$5 billion for the wall.

This comes as Democrats are set to introduce a number of bills when they take control of the House this week, which includes a short-term spending package to re-open the government. "If we had a Wall, they wouldn't even try!" "I'll get it built, and Fast!". "Nancy Pelosi needs to come back from Hawaii - less hula, more moola for the DHS, Customs and Border Patrol, funding our border security".

- Among the departments without funding are: Justice, Homeland Security, Interior and Treasury.

"One of the reasons why it's so difficult to keep people from coming - obviously it'd be preferable for them to stay in their own homeland but it's difficult to do sometimes, where they live - is a insane, oftentimes conflicting series of loopholes in the law in the United States that makes it extremely hard to turn people around and send them home". A prolonged crisis could hobble House Democrats' ability to launch their agenda, which includes investigations of the president and oversight of his administration, including Russian interference in the election.
