US House passes bills that would end gov't shutdown

US House passes bills that would end gov't shutdown

The comments from Sens.

Leaving aside whether a bill that passed unanimously two weeks ago doesn't have a real chance of passing, the House and Senate could always override Trump's veto, but that would require a significant number of Republicans to break ranks ― more than two dozen in the Senate and around 50 in the House.

As House speaker, Pelosi will regularly face off against President Donald Trump and will preside over an emboldened and energized Democratic majority that is poised to launch aggressive oversight of the President and his administration. A handful of Republicans broke ranks on each measure to vote "yes" with the Democrats.

McConnell said that Republicans have shown the Senate is "fertile soil for big bipartisan accomplishments", but that the question is whether House Democrats will engage in "good governance or political performance art". But thus far, because of Trump's opposition, party leaders have refused.

"We have no illusions that our work will be easy", Pelosi said, but she added that "when we disagree we respect each other, and we respect the truth". "Why would they not do that?" "When Congress allows a president to dictate ridiculous demands and lets petty partisanship prevent the timely passage of appropriations bills, we abdicate that responsibility".

Her victory came as the United States government remained partly shut down in a row over funds for the president's border wall with Mexico. Said Trump: "I hope it doesn't go on even beyond a few more days". "Let's not waste the time".

And the Democrats wasted no time flexing their new power in the House.

More than half are working without pay, while the rest are furloughed. "And anybody who can read Donald Trump's mind may well eventually win some kind of Nobel prize", he said.

Collins, a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, also indicated support for an element of the Democrats' approach.

She invited the children and grandchildren of House Representatives to join her as she was sworn in, saying: "I'm particularly proud to be a woman Speaker of the House of this Congress, which marks the 100th year of women having the right to vote".

Democrats also approved, 241-190, a separate measure funding the Agriculture, Interior and other departments through September 30. Then, Trump made a push for his border wall, introducing some members of the National Border Patrol Council and National ICE Council. "We're not doing the wall".

"The president made it clear, we're here to make a deal", Vice-President Mike Pence told Fox News on Thursday night.

"He doesn't own the shutdown any longer", Conway said when asked if the president regrets his past statement willingly taking the blame.

The president is due to resume budget talks with top Democrats and Republicans on Friday.

Numerous federal workers impacted will miss their first paycheck beginning next week. The food stamp program that millions of Americans rely on may grind to a halt beginning in February, and the Internal Revenue Service will not be able to process refunds.

The homeland security bill is virtually identical to a plan the Senate adopted by voice vote last month.

Meanwhile, while Ms Pelosi has been cautious about calls to impeach Mr Trump, other lawmakers have pushed for this, including Ms Tlaib, who also attracted controversy for using offensive language to describe the president.

"Without a wall you cannot have border security", the president continued after allowing the officers to make statements to the press. This pledge proved very popular with many of his supporters.

The video concludes with footage of Trump at the border along with audio from one of his rallies in which he vows to build his promised border wall and the crowd chants "Build the wall!"
