Senate scrambles as shutdown looms

Democrats in the Senate have served notice they will filibuster a four-week, government-wide funding bill that cleared the House Thursday evening, seeking to shape a subsequent measure.

This story was updated at 1:25 p.m. EST.

Almost half of Americans, or 48%, would fault Republicans and Trump for the shutdown, while 28% would blame Democrats, according to the survey.

The president fired back at Democrats during a trip to Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, arguing they're pushing for a shutdown to distract voters from the GOP's tax cuts.

Sen. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican in the chamber, shut down the idea as a nonstarter Friday.

The strategy, crafted by the party's congressional leadership, was to pass a bill that would receive enough Republican support to overcome unified Democratic resistance in the House and then jam Senate Democrats into either grudgingly voting for the bill or forcing a politically fraught shutdown over protections for undocumented immigrants.

The White House announced in a statement that it would be holding a media briefing on Friday over the possible government shutdown, as legislators struggled to keep the United States government funded.

Not speaking to each other: McConnell and Schumer.

A separate source in touch with the White House and Freedom Caucus said Trump and Meadows had been working around Ryan. Neither was Ryan, who was addressing the "March for Life" rally around the same time.

The Republican-controlled Senate's bid to avert a U.S. government shutdown is teetering on the brink of collapse as it races against a midnight deadline.

"In theory, the Senate could deal with it before midnight and the House could in some fashion deal with it before midnight", he told reporters Friday. "Ultimately I'm not afraid to walk into this valley with Democrats being the ones to shut it down and see if we can't message the truth here".

Later, he posted tweets showing the Pentagon being critical of continuing resolutions, saying it's damaging to operations and budgeting.

Montiel warned that the projectiles are considered unsafe as they could possibly distract the bus driver and cause a collision. Late Tuesday night, Apple officials said buses would be re-routed for the time being, as the CHP conducts its investigation.

President vows to uproot 'terror nests' in Syria
The Turkish leader also vowed to eliminate the Kurdish threat in northern Syria through an anticipated military campaign in Afrin. Turkey, which considers the main Kurdish militia in Syria an extension of its own insurgent group, has protested the new force.

Some hope Oprah makes 2020 run at the White House
This year, there was talk of working conditions for farmers and janitors, and demands for equal pay across society. He has also been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct, though he has vehemently denied the allegations.

"Tomorrow will mark exactly one year since I took the oath of office, and I must say the country is doing really well", he said.

The optics of being in Mar-a-Lago during a government shutdown would be awful, the official said, but so far the contingency plan being most discussed is delaying departure until Saturday.

Several GOP senators, for example, were trying to find out from Democrats why they are dug in against the House's short-term spending mechanism. And protestors descended on a Senate office building, demanding the Republicans agree to an immigration bill. "It will lie in the bottomless bad faith coming from President Trump, his hard-line anti-immigration advisers and some Republicans - and with Trump's openly advertised racism and white nationalism". Dick Durbin. In that same meeting Trump used vulgar language to describe the African countries where some immigrants come from.

So instead of the necessary 60 votes to pass the measure in the Senate, Republicans might not even tally 50 votes, which would mean yet another layer of humiliation for Trump and his hapless negotiators.

A Republican National Committee official told CNN they are determining what will become of fundraiser gala - Trump could be beamed in via video or could be rescheduled, but many people are already in or en route to Palm Beach.

"We discussed all of the major outstanding issues".

But only one - Joe Manchin, of West Virginia - has so far said that he is leaning in favour.

Even vulnerable, moderate Democrats from red states, like Senator Jon Tester of Montana, said they would vote against the bill as it was constructed and let the government shut down.

Inside, Pelosi and Whip Steny Hoyer spoke, and Durbin crossed the Capitol to update their colleagues on how negotiations with the majority are going. "In terms of any long range planning and the damage they do to national security".

Still, 56% overall say approving a budget agreement to avoid a shutdown is more important than continuing the DACA program, while just 34% choose DACA over a shutdown. He has spent weeks getting his members to proclaim that we should not do anything to fund the government until we address the DACA issue.

"It makes government more inefficient", said Hoagland, with agencies unable to plan ahead, respond to new developments, or retire programs that have outlived their usefulness.

But, McConnell also has problems with his own members. Sen.
