Trump Blinked. Could A Shutdown Deal Be Next?

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California left the House Speaker-designate and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer D-N.Y. speak to the media after meeting with President Donald Trump Wednesday Jan. 2 2019 on border security at the White

After being forced into shelving his annual State of the Union address by top Democrat Nancy Pelosi, President Donald Trump faced a fresh setback on Thursday, as lawmakers were expected to nix his latest proposal to end the USA government shutdown.

The President can not speak in front of a joint session of Congress without both chambers' explicit permission, and a resolution needs to be approved by both chambers specifying the date and time for receiving an address from the President.

A petulant Trump told reporters: "The State of the Union speech has been cancelled by Nancy Pelosi because she doesn't want to hear the truth". In it he dismisses her suggestion the speech should be postponed or delivered in writing due to security issues related to the partial government shutdown.

But the suspense soon dispersed as Pelosi replied to Trump's letter, making it clear that she would not host him on January 29 if the government is still in shutdown.

As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address. A failure to advance either bill would mean the shutdown, now in its 34th day, will continue.

Republicans controlling the Senate have scuttled a Democratic attempt to temporarily reopen the shuttered portions of the federal government.

Earlier in the day, Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives floated the idea of ending the partial government shutdown by giving Trump most or all of the money he seeks for security along the Mexican border but for items other than the wall he wants. "I agreed", he wrote Wednesday night.

Both proposals were likely to fail to reach the 60-vote threshold needed in the Senate, where Republicans hold a 53-47 majority. A resolution needs to be approved by both chambers specifying the date and time for receiving an address from the President.

Pelosi also said Democrats were not negotiating any counter-offers behind the scenes and that they were continuing to efforts to reopen the government after finding lapsed December 22.

Again on Thursday morning, however, he was back to calling it a wall on Twitter, where he communicates directly with his 57.7 million followers. Trump also reportedly views the national emergency option as a "last resort", suggesting he may be ready for a less constitutionally fraught exit strategy.

She said the Democrats position has not changed and that Trump must reopen government before parties discuss any compromise or resolution.

Economists have told NBC News that an extended government shutdown could be catastrophic for the economy, as well as for the nearly 40 million Americans who would lose food stamps and 2 million people who could lose rental assistance. About 800,000 employees will be missing their second fortnightly paycheck on Friday and were facing financial hardships.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders released a statement saying that the White House had already made it clear to Graham that a three-week bill "would only work if there is a large down payment on the wall".

Mr Trump's approval rating has taken a hit during the shutdown, dropping to 41 per cent earlier this month, with polls showing most Americans do not support his wall.

Still, North Carolina's House Speaker Tim Moore wrote a letter inviting Trump to deliver the speech in the North Carolina House chamber.

The legislative deadlock left Congress and the president grasping for a solution as thousands of federal workers, some reliant on food banks to make ends meet, are about to miss a second paycheck. "It's easy when you got that".
