Dems say Trump can avert shutdown risk if he relents on wall

Trump pressures Democrats on Obamacare to get border wall deal

Congress returns as Trump pressures Democrats ahead of funding deadline

If lawmakers fail to reach an agreement, the government will begin a partial shutdown on April 29, Trump's 100th day in office.

And while efforts to avoid a shutdown are expected to dominate the action in Congress this week, there were signs of movement Monday on another of the GOP's signature agenda items: health care.

The mixed messaging continued on health care, where Priebus and Mulvaney continued to push for a vote to repeal and replace Obamacare, days after Trump told reporters "it doesn't matter" if a vote comes to fruition this week.

President Donald Trump said on Sunday he expected Mexico to pay for the wall he has promised to build along the southern border, resuscitating a campaign promise that roiled USA relations with Mexico in the first week of his presidency.

This contradicts Trump's recent tweet about the wall in which he said only Democrats were opposed to the funding.

"The president says he's willing to shut down the government of the most powerful nation on earth if the us taxpayers won't pay for a wall now that Mexico says they won't", said Sen.

This time around, there are several reasons why a shutdown may occur; however, these reasons primarily center on Trump rather than Congress.

The timing couldn't be worse for Mourinho, with United still competing for a place in the Champions League next season and in the semi-final of the Europa League.

"The Wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)!" Trump's U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley said Monday that the United States could strike North Korea if North Korea attacks a USA military base or tests an intercontinental ballistic missile.

"There is some language in there [about a border wall] but it's created to be constructive in the process", he said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a Monday conference call with reporters that Trump is risking a federal shutdown "by shoving this wall down Congress' and the American people's throats". "I don't think anybody is trying to get to a shutdown". "We'd expect the priorities of the president to be reflecting" in the short-term spending bill.

"I can't imagine the Democrats would shut down the government over an objection to building a down payment on a wall that can end the lawlessness", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on ABC's "This Week", suggesting Democrats - not Trump and Republicans - should catch the blame for a government shutdown over border wall funding. Republicans accept that compromise. "Were they for border security before they were against it?"

"Democrats do not support the wall", she said, speaking also on NBC.

"I think we want to make sure that we've got the votes and we're headed in the right direction before putting some artificial deadline", Spicer said. "How much of their stuff are they willing to take?" budget director Mick Mulvaney said on Bloomberg Television.

The New York Democrat says he speaks with Trump occasionally and said that "my advice to the president is to start keeping some of your promises".

"It's good for the country that President Trump is taking the wall off the table in these negotiations", Schumer said late on Monday. "He has enormous energy tactically", he said, adding that he believes Congress will pass a one-week extension on the current spending bill to buy themselves some more time.

The two main Republicans who are leading negotiations come from opposite ends of the Republican ideological spectrum.

He and other Republican leaders are working to ratchet down White House expectations.

Trump showed even more flexibility Monday afternoon, telling conservative journalists in a private meeting that he was open to delaying funding for wall construction until September, a White House official confirmed.

Trump added that he would eventually fulfill his campaign pledge to prompt the Mexican government to pay for the wall but that taxpayers would need to foot the bill for now.
