Trump meets with coalition of Democrats and Republicans as shutdown drags on

McConnell looks to shift blame for shutdown to Pelosi

While, without an advance team, it's hard to schedule and staff events outside the White House, she has not been seen at any administration events such as Monday night's reception. He said quarterly economic growth is being reduced by.13 of a percent each week the shutdown continues.

And almost half of the East Wing's staff is gone, Melania Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham told DailyMail.com, adding: 'We have no advance teams or support staff'.

The shutdown has resulted from a dispute over border wall funding.

"Pelosi correctly recognizes that the more President Trump shines a spotlight on the very real human tragedies that occur because of her and her party's open border policies, the more of a political loser it becomes for them", Trump continued.

Both the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Aviation Administration on Tuesday said they would call back almost 50,000 employees to handle tax returns, refunds and other tasks or to work in aviation safety inspection.

The administration's revised model includes both the estimated impact from those contractors that are not working because of the shutdown, as well as the 380,000 furloughed federal workers, according to an administration official.

"I was sitting there imagining what would the national champions in a sport in Japan or Italy or France get when they went to their respective leaders' homes, and I imagine that the Japanese spread would be pretty outlandishly fantastic", Kokonas said.

"I think that would be their favorite food, so we'll see what happens", President Trump said.
