During the longest government shutdown in USA history, President Donald Trump has been losing support among those who may be his strongest supporters - white Americans who don't have college degrees. If the shutdown lasts another week, they will miss a second paycheck this year.

Financial companies have put in place programs to help those workers deal with a sudden loss in income, while a number of restaurants are giving away meals to federal workers. "The American people are counting on us to show leadership, and we have done that here in the House". The second bill would reopen federal agencies through February 28. We will have food for you to eat or food to take home.

The same Post/ABC News poll that found Americans blaming Trump for the shutdown also found increased support for the wall, though a majority of Americans still oppose the idea.

The White House says rank-and-file House Democrats have declined President Donald Trump's invitation for a White House lunch as the administration tries to build support for funding the border wall with Mexico amid the government shutdown.

"We're talking about border security".

The governor made his most extensive comments to date on the prolonged government shutdown after a meeting with Democratic leaders at the State House where he spoke with House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Senate President Karen Spilka about doing something to help furloughed federal workers.

Former World Series MVP arrested on suspicion of child sex abuse
The 52-year-old, according to Denton County jail records, is accused of continuous sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14. Authorities arrested Wetteland after the Bartonville Police were referred the case by the Texas Department of Family Services.

Capitol Hill aides say the lawmakers going to the White House include centrist Democrats from districts were Trump is popular, including freshmen. The White House schedule for Wednesday shows Trump having a meeting with a bipartisan group of members from the House of Representatives who call themselves the Problem Solvers Caucus.

Food and drug inspections have been curtailed but about 400 US Food and Drug Administration staffers returned to work, Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said.

Meanwhile, the effects of the 25-day partial government closure were intensifying around the country.

Trump has rejected a short-term legislative fix and dug in for more combat, declaring he would "never ever back down". Unfortunately, no Democrats will attend, ' White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Republicans complain that Democrats are the ones who are refusing to budge, and they say it's up to Pelosi to bring Trump a new offer. That outcome seems likely.

"Why won't President Trump open the government while we continue to negotiate?"

Rep. Lou Correa's spokesperson struck just the right note, saying that "Congressman Correa welcomes the opportunity to talk with the president about border security, as soon as the government is reopened".

"How much more suffering must the president cause before Leader McConnell realizes it's time to move ahead without him?"

He reasoned later that the White House would refuse to sign the Democrat bill into law anyway, so it didn't make sense to consider in the Senate.

"They are not employees of Trump Tower", Rep. Ayanna Pressley said of McConnell and Republican senators.

GDPNow, an up-to-date tracker monitored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, is estimating fourth-quarter growth of 2.8 percent (as of January 10).

"He'd benefit from listening to the stories of federal civil servants who were working without pay, locked out of their jobs, maybe then President Trump will understand the damage he's causing by holding these people hostage until he gets what he wants". Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., called the votes "political theater" and said the legislation will not pass the Senate.

Americans support Ocasio-Cortez's 70 percent tax rate on rich
While Trump spoke with reporters on Monday morning outside the White House, one asked him, "Mr. Ocasio-Cortez reacted to the survey on Twitter - taking a shot at her critics as well.

While leaders have been more prominent faces of the divide, there is no shortage of lawmakers on both sides advocating for something to change. Democrats, he argued, were partying on a beach rather than negotiating - though Pelosi and Schumer were not on the trip.
