Nancy Pelosi Has Struck a Deal With Rebel Democrats

Trump, top democrats openly spar in oval office over border wall

That's a reference to Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who met with Trump Tuesday.

In a remarkable public argument, the likes of which is seldom seen before cameras, Trump brawled with U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi about funding for the wall he has promised to build on the southern border with Mexico.

But Democrats are seizing on Trump's threats of a government shutdown, should he not receive billions in government funding for a border wall, as proof of his unwillingness to reach a bipartisan solution on immigration, while portraying him as erratic.

US President Donald Trump pointed to the mass shooting at a Christmas market in France to bolster his demands for funding to build a US border wall with Mexico.

The president is seeking US$5 billion (£3.93 billion) for the border wall, a campaign promise that he has made into a central issue as Congress seeks to finalise spending before some federal government funding expires on December 21.

Trump's lawyer and former New York City mayor Rudy Guiliani told the Times that he would tell the president to fight any request for his tax returns.

Under the deal, House Democrats will vote by February 15 to change party rules to limit their top three leaders to no more than four two-year terms, including time they've already spent in those jobs.

She said the House Ways & Means Committee would make that decision and cautioned that "it's a little more challenging than you might think". Mr Trump and Schumer jabbed at each other over the import of the midterm elections - and who will be blamed if a shutdown occurs.

Marcus Harris nearly caught it, with the ball barely crossing over the ropes and the umpire took some time to call it a six. What has left the CA stumped is the lack of overall support so far from the strong Indian contingent living in Perth.

Trump has repeatedly threatened to shut down much of the government if Democrats do not back his plan.

After the meeting, Pelosi revealed to Democrats that Trump had claimed in their private session that Mexico would pay for the wall - his oft-stated campaign promise that he has abandoned since taking office.

"I will shut down the government", the president said.

"Let's call a halt to this", Ms Pelosi said as the two New Yorkers went at it.

During the Oval Office meeting, Trump said he'd take responsibility for a shutdown if his border wall isn't funded. Border wall funding is the biggest issue.

Rep. Filemon Vela of Brownsville and a group of like-minded Democratic rebels announced late Wednesday that they will back the California Democrat in exchange for her agreeing to serve no more than four years as the party's leader in that chamber.

Even though Congress is still controlled by Republicans until year's end, Democrats are needed to get the supermajority required to clear Senate procedural hurdles on spending legislation.

"It's done", Schumer said. "There will be no additional money for the wall", Schumer said. Her opponents say Pelosi and her top lieutenants should step aside for younger leaders.
