Also on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a news conference with federal workers to draw attention to federal workers who may end up missing a paycheck on Friday if the shutdown continues.

"The Republicans are totally unified", Trump told reporters after that meeting. They are particularly concerned about the administration's talk of possibly declaring a national emergency at the border, seeing that as an unprecedented claim on the right of Congress to allocate funding except in the most dire circumstances.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a $24 billion spending bill that funds the IRS and other agencies affected by the partial government shutdown through September 30, as Democrats look to flex their new majority to put pressure on congressional Republicans amid the ongoing standoff.

With the two sides at an impasse, some 800,000 federal employees are expected to miss their first paycheck, on Friday, since the shutdown began on December 22.

In another tweet, he reiterated the call to "fix" the southern border. He added, "I said bye-bye, nothing else works!" In past shutdowns, civil servants were paid retroactively once the impasses ended. "They can't watch every inch of the border, so that would help them take more control of the whole situation".

The first look of the film was released on January 7 and going by the looks of it Vivek Oberoi was unrecognisable in the poster. Veteran actor Paresh Rawal was initially roped in to play the role of Modi, but the actor backed out due to unknown reasons.

"And he just got up and said, 'Then we have nothing to discuss, ' and he just walked out".

Vice President Pence blamed Democrats for refusing to give ground on the wall.

But on Tuesday, all major networks agreed to air Trump's remarks live.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told The Washington Post on Tuesday, "There is an opportunity for every American to see who wants government open and our responsibility is not to do what the president the United States tells us to do".

"I just listened to Senator Schumer", McCarthy, a California Republican, said.

Solution to Arsenal's defensive woes? Unai Emery's side has conceded the most number of goals in the Premier League top 5 so far. Perhaps they should instead be focusing on joining the race to sign Andre Gomes, who has impressed with Everton this season.

Before his televised address, Trump confessed in private to a group of news personalities that his upcoming speech and planned trip to the Southern border would be pointless.

Senator Doug Jones of Alabama said, "We need to dial back the rhetoric and not use fear".

She says: "The fact is: President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis, and must reopen the government". Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dealt him a ratings blow. "They voted for border security". He claimed the standoff could be resolved in "45 minutes" if Democrats would just negotiate, but previous meetings have led to no agreement.

Negotiations between Republicans and Democrats remain at an impasse, and now some Senate Republicans are breaking ranks and saying the president should reopen the government while discussions over border security continue.

"We are grateful to the more than 51,000 agents across the country who remain focused on the mission and are respectful to the traveling public", said TSA spokesman Michael Bilello.
