WASHINGTON — President Trump projected an air of comity Thursday as he resumed budget negotiations with Republican leaders and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco and her Senate counterpart Chuck Schumer of New York, but the two sides remained far apart in their hardball talks over what to include in a long-term spending bill that would keep the government open.

Before the White House meeting, Pelosi restated Democrats’ position that protection for young immigrants brought into the country — or who entered on their own — illegally as children must be resolved before Congress leaves for the year later this month.

They are not in power in any branch. If they cause trouble then trump should use 0bama tactics to destroy them. Fake news turnabout is fair play.

Nancy and Chuck force the government to shut down.

Trump comes on and tells Americans that they will not feel the effects of the shutdown and everyone will continue to get their benefits.

President Trump makes it a point to stress that Federal Parks will not be shut down (like the 0bama administration did) and there will be no barriers to entry.

The entire EPA will be shut down for the duration of the Democrat strike, but no American will be effected.

All payments to universities will be suspended until Nancy and Chuck's strike is over, but financial aide to students will not be affected. The Department of Education will be totally shut down and Americans will not feel the effect of this department at all.

The Christmas trees on Federal Lands will continue to shine.

Merry Christmas America and thank you Nancy and Chuck.

Nancy Pelosi was demanding opioid addiction programs be funded.

Not a problem. Those funds have been directed to the DoD to bomb the heck out of the Afghani Opium Poppy industry.

I hope they do shut down the US government of the citizens, paid for by the citizens, in favor of illegal aliens.

Now if we could just find a party to represent the citizens...............

I heard Mitch can change the rules so only a majority needs to get the spending Bill passed instead of 60

He should do it since we will be getting a ton more Senators in 2018

Democrats likely won't be in the majority for a long time!

Trump should ask why Stretch why she insists on bankrupting the nation as she has been so successful doing to the state of California.

Omnibus bills are the signature of the sewer the DC establishment has become.

She’s welcome to put forth legislation if she feels strongly. It’s her responsibility, not the President’s.

The problem is that when the dems hold the Congress, they make the demands and they see the legislation through.

And when the Republicans hold the Congress, the dems make demands and see the legislation through.

Unfortunately Yertle the Turtle and Ryan have developed Stockholm Syndrome re: hostage takers Botoxly and Schumer.
