The Congress members dripped back in Washington Thursday along with little sign of concluding a government shutdown inflamed by President Donald Trump’s persistence on sponsoring for a Mexico-US border wall. Although the Senate was expected to formal regathering after the Christmas break, the legislators gave no sign they would quickly manage the budget crisis that has left the fragments of the government without funds for six days.
Apparently, Trump was not sleeping after a tiring day-trip in his first visit to US combat troops since being elected – remarked on Twitter that he was in no mood to back down.
He demands $5 billion additions and improvements to the barricade in the border of Mexico which he has made the decoration of his homely political platform, disputing that the requirements of protection from illegal immigration in the United States.
Rival Democrats and some own Republican officials of Trump refuse. They charge the President of exaggerating the immigration issue for diplomatic gainings and claim that a wall is not the best form of border security.
In retribution, Trump has denied signing spending package, pushing large parts of the government to dormant as 800,000 federal employees temporarily go overdue.
Both sides seemed decided to continue the deadlock.
Trump said in a tweet, hardly three hours after returning from Iraq, “Have the Democrats finally realized that we desperately need Border Security and a Wall on the Southern Border ”.
He said, “ Need to stop Drugs, Human Trafficking, Gang Members & Criminals from coming into our Country”, before coming back to the subject in mid-afternoon accusing “ Democrat obstruction of the needed Wall.”
