President Donald Trump said on Sunday that he can relate to leave by government officials, as the partial closure of the government will enter the third week. I can understand and I'm sure that the people who are at the end will make adjustments, they always do, & # 39; The president told reporters when he went to Camp David for a retreat for the White House. & # 39; But many of those people who will not receive a salary, many of those people are 100 percent agree with what I'm doing, & # 39; he added. "They will make an adjustment because they want the border to be addressed," Trump said later Sunday, when he insisted that everything would be okay for federal workers. & # 39; It's all right, & # 39; he said.
President Trump said Sunday that the closure of the government could take a while to wait. The closure started on day 16 without progress and the low expectations of the president. Trump said he did not expect anything from the Sunday meeting with Vice President Mike Pence and congress assistants after a meeting of that group on Saturday did not bring any movement to reopen the government. The president said that "very serious talks & # 39; would continue on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the coming week. But he was firmly on the $ 5 billion he wants to build on his boundary wall. & # 39; There will be no bend here, & # 39; he said. He also said that he, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi could open the government in & # 39; 20 minutes when the Democrats wanted it. & # 39; Schuifmeester and Nancy Pelosi and I can solve this in 20 minutes if they want to. If they do not want it to last long, "he said. I will tell you if we do not find a solution that will last a long time, "he added. He said he held up because his supporters wanted a wall. "The people who voted for Donald Trump – and there are a lot of people, it was one of the biggest elections ever – people are like that. And let me tell you that people who have not voted for Donald Trump are also for it. They want border security, & he said. & # 39; I do not like doing this, "he added. & # 39; I have been chosen to protect our country. & # 39; I think I'm doing a great job, "he remarked. The White House and the Democrats are trapped between the $ 5 billion that Trump wants and the $ 1.3 billion offered by the Democrats. Neither party will admit. Trump said he thinks Democrats want to make a deal, but he refuses to say what he has to offer – such as protection for dreamers, the illegals brought by their parents as children to the United States – or that he would start working on wall financing to achieve that happen. & # 39; Everyone plays games but I tell you this, I think the Democrats want to close a deal, the president said. He also indicated that he was looking at his options, including declaring a national state of emergency. & # 39; I can state the national state of emergency depending on what will happen in the coming days, & # 39; Trump said. Later in the day, on his return from Camp David, he said: "We are looking at a national state of emergency because we have a national emergency. Just read the papers. & # 39;

Trump said he, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (above) could open the government within 20 minutes. Press of the press office Sarah Sanders said the president did not fight for a wall, but for border security. The president does not fight for the wall; he fights for the protection of American citizens, & # 39; she said on & # 39; Fox News Sunday. Trump on Friday first floated the idea of declaring a national state of emergency to take the money he needs for his boundary wall. . Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday that he did not think Trump would be able to use emergency forces to build his wall. Look, if Harry Truman could not nationalize the steel industry during wartime, then this president does not have the authority to declare an emergency situation and build a billions wall at the border, & # 39; Schiff said on CNN & # 39; s State of the Union & # 39 ;. & # 39; So that's a non-starter. & # 39; Under the National Emergencies Act of 1976, presidents can take such action in times of need when they inform the Congress, specify the circumstances that make the situation an emergency and document all forms of use of the executive. Officers from the Ministries of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense have investigated the issue for the president, the New York Times reported. Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney of the White House said on Sunday that the president has asked his governmental agencies to investigate whether their departments have resources that can be diverted. & # 39; The inhabitants have the authority to defend the nation, & # 39; he said on CNN & # 39; s State of the Union & # 39 ;. "The president has asked each secretary of the cabinet and the Office of Management and Budget to go out and find money that can legally be used to guard the southern border," he noted. The move is when Trump lands between a rock and a hard spot: his campaign in 2016 promises to build a wall and increase the pressure of republicans to open up the government. The president on Sunday has cleared a question about whether he has lost any influence in the talks as members of his party ask about how long the shutdown will continue. "I have huge support within the Republican party, & # 39 ;he said. Trump also wanted to shift the debt to the Democrats. & # 39; This shutdown could end tomorrow or it could also take a long time. It really depends on the Democrats, & # 39; he said. & # 39; You think I like doing this. I do not like to do this, but we have to have it, "he remarked. Meanwhile, Democrats are implementing their own measures to reopen the government. On Thursday, the first day Democrats were in office, they adopted two laws to finance the government: one financed the Ministry of Homeland Security until February 8 and the other financed all other closed divisions – such as Justice, Interior, Transport, Trade. and Agriculture – for the remainder of the fiscal year up to and including 30 September.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said he did not believe that Trump would be able to use emergency forces to build his wall. An estimated 380,000 federal workers in these departments have been put on hold and another 420,000 will have to work without paying. The clock taps to January 11 – the first payment period for those employees who will cover the full shutdown period. Next week, the Democrats plan to issue individual accounts to finance each closed department. But Trump has said that he will not sign legislation that does not give him 5 billion dollars for his wall. And Republicans from the Senate said they will not bring forward legislation that the president will not sign. & # 39; We do not do a wall. Does anyone have any doubt that we do not make a wall? & # 39; Nancy Pelosi said Thursday, the day she came to power again.
