U.S. Economy Lost An Estimated $6 Billion To Shutdown, S&P Says

Greyhound bus station

At the White House Thursday, Trump told reporters he'd support "a reasonable agreement" to reopen the government.

The Post-ABC poll was conducted by telephone January 21-24 among a random national sample of 1,001 adults, with 65 percent reached on cellphones and 35 percent on landlines. Some of them had wanted her to negotiate earlier, the official said. Afterward McConnell said Congress will concentrate on border security in the next three weeks and that "negotiations on DHS will be prioritized over consideration of any other funding bills".

The poll-whose participants were split between Democrats, Republicans and Independents by 32, 24 and 37 percent respectively-also showed that 50 percent of respondents had either some or no confidence that Mueller's final report would be fair, whereas only 43 percent had a good or "great" amount. In the subsequent weeks, Republicans largely supported the president through the shutdown, incurring the wrath of some constituents and achieving nothing in the end. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who's clashed periodically with the president.

And yet a 46 percent plurality suspect Democrats will "go too far" in their inquiries of Trump, while just over one-third think they will handle it about right. "Utah Republicans remain strong, voters have not blamed him for the shutdown and this may be shielding the president's approval ratings from dipping further".

In a video message to agents on Friday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said: "I'm about as angry as I've been in a long, long time". "I don't think polls have much impact right now on how people are acting". Recent polls found Trump bore the blame for the shutdown.

With Americans exasperated over the 35-day shutdown's impact on everyday life, including air travel, Trump finally gave in and agreed to reopen the government until February 15, without getting the $5.7 billion he had demanded for a border wall.

Sassuolo general director Giovanni Carnevali is expected to fly to Spain today, with a view to completing a deal later this week. While not an obvious January signing for the La Liga leaders, he fits all the requirements the club had drawn up.

Meanwhile, 57, 59 and 61 percent of respondents respectively were in favor of House Democrats using congressional authority to launch investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation; the relationship and communications between Trump and Vladimir Putin; and possible financial ties between Trump and foreign governments. Trump signed it later Friday night. "What a debacle. I'm so so sorry, America". Perhaps most crucially, he underestimated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the unity of congressional Democrats, thinking the Californian would be more amenable to a deal on the wall once she won the speakership. Sixty-two percent of Democrats said they trusted Mueller in comparison to just 22 percent of Republicans. "Hopefully now the president has learned his lesson". In the RealClearPolitics poll, the President's numbers stand at 41.1% approve and 55.6% disapprove, for a deficit of -14.5 points.

Among political independents, disapproval of Trump has grown from 53 percent at the start of November to 63 percent.

The Tribune-Hinckley Institute survey also shows the deep divide of the country.

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter wasted no time in lashing out at Trump's retreat.

On the opposite end, 90 percent of those surveyed who consider themselves very liberal oppose the president with another 3 percent somewhat opposed to him. He stood up for the American people. "If you run these negotiations purely based on polls, we never get anywhere", Chaffetz said.

While impeachment has polled down 9 percentage points since August, with just 40 percent supporting those proceedings, 60 percent support releasing President Trump's tax returns, according to ABC News.
