Democrats could come up losers in government shutdown fight

President Donald Trump flanked by empty seats for Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer of N.Y. left and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif. right speaks in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington Tuesday Nov. 28 2017 dur

Trump later said that Schumer and Pelosi had been "all talk" and "no action".

Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi for pulling out of a White House meeting to discuss a bipartisan solution to government shutdown after the president openly insulted them on Twitter.

Their attempt to divide and conquer failed, though, after Republican leaders stuck by Mr. Trump and attended the meeting at the White House anyway, saying Democrats were recklessly risking a shutdown by refusing to talk to the country's chief executive and the man who must sign whatever bills Congress eventually passes. Schumer and Pelosi said they pulled out of the meeting because of a tweet Trump sent earlier in the day attacking them as weak on illegal immigration and bent on raising taxes. "I don't see a deal!" he said.

"We will take care of it", Trump told reporters at the White House.

Two committee Republicans had said they were considering voting against the measure, but were reportedly persuaded after meeting Trump, who is said to want the bill on his desk before year's end. Republicans are looking for big increases in defense spending, pointing to growing world trouble spots, while Democrats say they need domestic spending increases.

Finally, Reilly Financial Advisors LLC raised its holdings in shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance by 7.9% in the second quarter. This repurchase authorization permits the pharmacy operator to reacquire shares of its stock through open market purchases.

"If the president, who already said earlier this year that 'our country needs a good shutdown, ' isn't interested in addressing the hard year end agenda, we'll work with those Republicans who are, as we did in April", the top Democrats said. "If the Democrats want a shutdown, they're making a mistake". Now in control of all three levers, Republicans would suffer even more from a shutdown, Democrats said.

Trump said he "would absolutely blame the Democrats" if there is a government shutdown next week.

Trump left empty seats on either side of him, with name cards for Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, and Pelosi, the top Democrat in the House of Representatives. "I can't recall ever turning down an opportunity to go down to the White House", McConnell said. But they can't solve them if they're not talking to each other. If it happens, it's going to be over illegals coming into the country, crime pouring into the country, no border wall, which everyone wants-I got elected partially because of the border wall. Democrats want certain guarantees in any deal, including protections for unauthorized immigrants brought to the U.S. as children and restored funding for CHIP, the children's health insurance program.

It was not immediately clear if Mr Trump was referring to additional USA sanctions or another round of penalties at the United Nations (UN).

Another issue is the Children's Health Insurance Program, which has had broad bipartisan support since it was created in 1997. Unless Congress provides more money, states will have to freeze enrollment or start shutting down the program, which serves more than eight million children.
