Trump walks out of shutdown talks with a 'bye-bye'

In his Tuesday night address to the nation from the Oval Office, Trump referred to the killing of Corporal Ronil Singh, saying: "America's heart broke the day after Christmas when a young police officer in California was savagely murdered in cold blood by an illegal alien who just came across the border". He suggested the issue could be resolved in a quick meeting, but past discussions at the White House have not ended the stalemate.

Mr Schumer said the president abruptly left when Mrs Pelosi said she would not approve of any wall funding.

However, Kimmel said that Trump has made a "big mistake" in his attempts to achieve this.

Mr Schumer was harsher in his criticism, accusing Mr Trump of throwing a temper tantrum and using millions of Americans as leverage.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also painted the president as intransigent. Democrats controlling the House have agreed to fund only Dollars 1.3 billion for border security.

Pressure will ramp up in the coming days as numerous 800,000 federal workers impacted miss out on a pay cheque for the first time since the shutdown begun.

"The president seems to be insensitive to that", Pelosi said. "Otherwise, they're just passing on his lies unfiltered", Meyers said. "But they can't. They can't".

Without a resolution, the closure of several government operations could soon pose a threat to the delivery of food stamps and tax refunds for millions of Americans.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed that McIver's case does not appear to be linked to that of the other two detainees. USA authorities claim Meng Wanzhou lied to US banks to get around sanctions against Iran asked to extradite the executive.

Schumer also placed blame for the stalemate on Trump. "I don't know what happened to that, but I guess it disappeared when the election was done", Kimmel said. "Tomorrow, so many people will have trouble paying their mortgages". And continue to discuss. We want to start with the facts. I appreciate the opportunity to speak directly to the American people tonight about how we can end this shutdown and meet the needs of the American people.

"The networks, I hope, yesterday struggled with the decision to put this on, because he consistently hasn't told the truth". Previous meetings have led to no agreement.

Democrats, in a bid to amplify pressure on the White House and Senate Republicans, were set to begin a series of House votes on Wednesday that would reopen the government one department at a time.

United States President Donald Trump has walked out of a meeting with Democrat leaders, as both sides try to break a political impasse that has forced a partial government shutdown.

"I think we ought to solve this shutdown".

In a countermove, the Trump administration said that even without a new shot of funding, the IRS would somehow make sure those refund checks get sent. Not once have the Democrats offered anything back.

President Trump is tapping into one of the powers of the presidency, a televised Oval Office address, for his first time.
