Can Trump Stop A Shutdown?


THE LATEST SHUTDOWN BUZZ FROM 1600 … Several different people inside the White House and on Capitol Hill tell us they are getting some signals PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP might back a bipartisan package of spending bills to avert a government shutdown. The package -- a so-called minibus -- funds border security, but not the wall. (Caveat: This president changes his opinions quickly. And the only word that is close to final is the word that comes out of his mouth.

  • House Passes Stopgap Spending Bill to Avert Government Shutdown

    The House voted 230-197 to keep the government funded for four more weeks, but prospects of a shutdown still hinge on the Senate. Federal funding will lapse at midnight Friday if Republican leaders can’t secure 60 votes to pass the measure in the Senate, where some GOP lawmakers plan to vote against it and Democratic support is uncertain without an immigration deal. The bills passage was assisted by Speaker Paul Ryan who struck a deal with Freedom Caucus conservatives over a separate vote on military funding. The deal came together after Freedom Caucus members circumvented leadership and took their demands directly to President Donald Trump. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is struggling to round up support to keep the government's lights on in the upper chamber. Senate Democrats said they're confident they have the votes to block the stop-gap spending bill that the House passed.

  • Trump May Have to Choose Between Government Shutdown and Border Wall

    President Donald Trump is unlikely to win congressional support for funds he wants for a proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall before an Oct. 1 deadline, meaning he may have to choose between backing down on a key campaign promise or shutting down the government. The second option was a politically dangerous one before Hurricane Harvey tore through southern Texas over the weekend and it now looks even riskier. At a campaign-style rally in Phoenix last week, Trump doubled down on his earlier demands that Congress fund a Mexican border wall in government spending legislation, adding a clear threat. “If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” he told supporters. Since then, lawmakers who were already struggling to hammer out a stop-gap federal spending bill before Oct. 1 to avoid a shutdown have had to factor in Trump’s threat as well. A government shutdown would result if Congress is unable to agree on a spending deal or if Trump does not like the package and vetoes it. A veto would put Trump in a dangerous position of rejecting a bill approved by his own party.

  • House And Senate Pass Stop-Gap Spending Bill to Avoid Government Shutdown

    The U.S. Senate on Thursday approved a bill to fund the federal government through Jan. 19 and avert agency shutdowns as a Friday midnight deadline neared. By a vote of 66-32, the Senate approved the money to keep most agencies funded at current levels, giving Republicans and Democrats in Congress more time to negotiate a bigger fiscal 2018 spending bill that would run through next Sept. 30. This shortly after House Republicans narrowly passed a stopgap measure to avoid a government shutdown, one day before the deadline. The bill now goes to President Donald Trump for signing into law.

  • A Key GOP Senator Trying To Stop A 2nd Shutdown Says There's A '50-50' Chance The Government Will Grind To A Halt Again At The End Of The Week

    Sen. Richard Shelby, the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee said that negotiations between the 17 Democrats and Republicans on the border conference committee had "stalled". Adding that there was a "50-50" chance they would reach an agreement. President Donald Trump reopened the government for three weeks to end the record 35-day partial shutdown, but those funds are due to run out on Saturday, February 16, at 12:01 a.m. Congress must bring an agreement to Trump's desk on Friday, February 15, to keep the government funded. But in practice, reaching an agreement may be even more urgent than that. Lawmakers face an unofficial deadline of Monday to reach an agreement so the legislation to keep funding the government could pass through both the House before then.

  • Ozzy Osbourne Tells Trump Campaign To Stop Using His Music

    Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne want President Trump to hop off their "Crazy Train" and get on someone else's. The two got angry over Trump's unauthorized use of "Crazy Train" in a Twitter video he posted Thursday which mocked 2020 Democratic primary candidates debating on MSNBC. The video captures the technical difficulties that happened at the start of Wednesday's event, and plays Osbourne's 1980 hit over the footage. Trump shows up at the end of the video. In a statement to Rolling Stone, the Osbournes said, "Based on this morning's unauthorized use of Ozzy Osbourne's 'Crazy Train,' we are sending notice to the Trump campaign (or any other campaigns) that they are forbidden from using any of Ozzy Osbourne's music in political ads or in any political campaigns. Ozzy's music cannot be used for any means without approvals."
