Trump says a government shutdown 'could happen' and blames it on Democrats who want illegal immigrants 'pouring into our country'
07 December, 2017, 15:53
Various mainstream media reported that President Donald Trump strained relations between Democrats and Republicans with a comment he made about the illegal immigration program during a Cabinet meeting. Even the head of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, whose members have been threatening to oppose the measure, predicted passage. "We want to have a great, beautiful, crime-free country".
Top Republicans are trying to avoid a government shutdown and instead are focusing on pushing through a $1.5 trillion tax bill, the Associated Press reported. They also have no interest in a shutdown that would raise questions about their ability to govern.
But Republicans have said they will not include a fix for DACA in the spending bill, arguing the issue should be handled separately. They know they'd still have leverage on subsequent bills needed to keep the government running.
The duo nicknamed "Chuck and Nancy" in disparaging tweets from President Trump has agreed to meet Trump and other Republican leaders to discuss a spending deal Thursday-the day before the deadline for a possible government shutdown.
But Trump unexpectedly tossed a hand grenade into the mix when he told reporters that a shutdown "could happen" and blamed Democrats. They want to have illegal immigrants, in many cases people that we don't want in our country ― they want to have illegal immigrants pouring into our country, bring with them crime, tremendous amounts of drugs.
Senate Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer pulled out of a meeting last week after Trump tweeted that he didn't see any chance of a deal.
Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement Monday, "We hope the president will go into this meeting with an open mind, rather than deciding that an agreement can't be reached beforehand". The budget stalemate could lead to a government shutdown.
That, however, is not an issue impacting current budget talks. It also laid out administration budget goals, saying money for the military including missile defense and security along the border with Mexico "must be prioritized in a long-term funding agreement".
In reality, the conference will involve tough negotiations over differences in the two versions of the tax bill that can be approved by both chambers.
"We have to provide funding for community health centres and (the Children´s Health Insurance Program), as well as relief for the millions of Americans still reeling from natural disasters", they added.
Democrats have been using their leverage to insist on spending boosts for health care, infrastructure and other domestic programs that would match increases Republicans want for defense. Trump ended safeguards against deportation three months ago but has expressed an openness to restoring them. A House GOP leadership aide said the full House now plans to debate the legislation Thursday.
If that measure clears the House and Senate, as expected, major fights are in the offing over the next funding bill, which could fund the government until sometime in January.
Mark Meadows and several others in the roughly 30-member group aren't ruling out backing a leadership-backed spending measure that would expire December 22.
