Former GOP congressman rips McConnell: "Somewhere a carnival is missing its barker".

Mitch-McConnell

Mr. Trump was to be the first president in 18 years to attend to forum - the most recent being President Bill Clinton in 2000, according to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller.

President Donald Trump has signed a bill reopening the US Government, ending a 69-hour display of partisan dysfunction after Democrats reluctantly voted to temporarily pay for resumed operations.

Harris couldn't believe McConnell's promise, and didn't want to "put the lives of Dreamers "in the hands of someone who has repeatedly gone back on his word", she said in a statement".

Democrats said they had reached a deal with Republicans to reopen the government and proceed with debate on immigration. The Democrats got on board after the GOP leaders said they would address the future of the Dreamers, who are undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.

Gardner (R-Colo.) said the "same basic offer" was available to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday night but it was rejected, causing the government to shut down over the weekend and into Monday.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer objected to that plan and it was unclear whether McConnell's pledge would be enough for Democrats to support a stopgap funding bill.

"It is abundantly clear that the Senate can not make progress on any of these crucial matters until the government is re-opened", McConnell said on the Senate floor, as he promised to allow an immigration policy process so long as the government was not shut down.

Whalen says the X-factor in all this is President Trump who, Whalen says, has been all over the map on this debate and could drop a bomb on the deal at any time.

Verdicts are expected by Friday, Feb. 2, one week before the Pyeongchang Olympics opening ceremony in South Korea. Russian Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov later slammed the International Olympic Committee ban as "controversial".

President Trump on Monday accused Democrats of prioritizing services and security for noncitizens over US citizens.

The last USA government was in 2013, when some 800,000 federal workers were put on furlough.

On the anniversary of his inauguration Saturday, Trump spent the day working rather than at a planned celebration with allies and supporters at his Mar-a-Lago Florida resort.

"So I think the Senate is the best body to lead the country to a result", said Sen. "And perhaps a bill that I vote on to start the process in the House is not one I vote for in final passage, but it's the way that it's supposed to work".

It appeared that Democratic resolve was beginning to waver, with growing worries that a prolonged shutdown could prove to be an electoral headache for the party just as it has grown more confident about prospects in November midterm elections.

During the Democrat-driven shutdown, Trump refused to negotiate with them on DACA or any other immigration policies, forcing them to reassess their strategy.

Services that stop or continue during a federal shutdown vary.
