Trump Says He's Willing to Shut the Government to Get His Wall

The White House has proposed a 2.1 percent pay increase for the troops, and House Republican leaders have proposed a 2.4 percent increase. "The door is wide open".

Trump carried the state by 3.5 percentage points in 2016 - and the state has been trending away from Republicans in the last several elections. The harsh posts were fresh evidence of the president's fraying relations with fellow Republicans just when the White House and Capitol Hill most need to be working in sync.

In April, 61 Republican and Democratic senators wrote to Senate leaders urging them to preserve the 60-vote threshold for legislation. No one has stepped forward yet, however, and the list of potential prospects remains small. And a handful of wealthy outsiders including Cuban and wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, are being encouraged to join the fray. "There are many different options in front of us on how we achieve that". Which is a remarkable thing to say about a Republican president.

"I don't think anyone's interested in having a shutdown", the top Republican in Congress, House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, told reporters on Wednesday in Hillsboro, Oregon, where he visited an Intel factory. One woman was killed.

Even before the divisive remarks, Trump's public approval ratings were bad.

Turkish guards indicted in United States over attack on protesters
In June, DC Police Chief Peter Newsham said that "there's no indication at all that the protesters were a terrorist group". Of the other 17, two are Canadians, and the rest are Turkish nationals.

"There is no doubt that the New Party's core would be formed by people who now label themselves Republican, just as the original Republicans were mostly re-labeled Whigs, or that the new party would pursue much of what the Republicans have purported to pursue, just as the original Republicans pursued much of the old Whigs' agenda".

"Equity markets in Europe are marginally lower on the day as traders are in wait-and-see mode ahead of the Jackson Hole symposium that starts tomorrow", where both Yellen and Draghi are scheduled to speak, said CMC Markets UK analyst David Madden.

"With a Republican House, Senate and Administration, Republicans have absolutely no excuses for threatening America's families with a destructive and pointless government shutdown", Pelosi said. He went after GOP senators and said the Senate should rewrite its rules to force through his agenda, saying this. Jeff Flake (R) by name, but he did attack him.

The best reason to build President Trump's wall, though, is that elections have consequences. He said the group has already organized volunteers in Iowa and New Hampshire. The president feeds that belief nearly every day. And in Trump's case, activists across the country are starting to come around. It's unclear if the president's going to support him in this primary. Running thousands of simulations, DDHQ gives the Democrats only a 30% chance of winning control of the House, a far cry from anything like proportional representation (which is not, of course, guaranteed under the Constitution, as opposed to some parliamentary systems). GOP leaders don't have a plan yet for how they'll proceed but one likely scenario is to package the two measures together to get them to the president's desk. When he fights with them, he not only diminishes them, he hurts their image among precisely the voters they need the most: loyal Trump supporters.

Take Two: Will Ohio State win the national championship?
But, as had become clear in recent weeks, it's almost impossible to beat the Buckeyes for a home-state kid that they really want. Fortunately, the Hoosiers have one of the Big 10's top linebackers in Tegray Scales back to lead their defense this season.

"He's not filtered. He's not poll-testing everything". "He has a great understanding of the pulse of the grassroots Republicans right now". Republicans control both Houses of Congress as well as the Presidency. The president has said he will get Mexico to reimburse US taxpayers for the cost, but it's not clear exactly how he would do that.

Barbour said the confusion following Trump's response to Charlottesville was "a huge distraction".

To stop what he sees as permanent damage to the GOP, Danforth urged members of Congress to actively challenge and break with the President.

He said he might terminate the NAFTA treaty with Mexico and Canada to jumpstart negotiations, and said the standoff with North Korea over its weapons programs might have taken a positive turn.
