We went all in yesterday on that wild Oval Office meeting with Trump, Pelosi, Schumer and a wax figure version of Vice President Pence installed in the background.
"I can't explain it to you". Democrats enjoyed a net gain of 40 seats in the midterms, and Pelosi made it clear that the Democratic House majority won't be rubber-stamping legislation that Trump favors - for example, a costly wall stretching from California to Texas along the U.S./Mexico border.
Congress last week temporarily averted a partial shutdown amid the funeral services for the late President George H.W. Bush, pushing the new deadline to December 21.
Sen. Schumer blasted the Trump administration for requesting billions more for border security, despite the fact that only 6 percent of the $1.3 billion from previous year has been spent.
So if Democrats hold onto the House in 2020, Pelosi and her lieutenants would step down at the end of 2022, when Pelosi and Clymer will be 82, and Hoyer will be 83.
"Did you say Trump?" the president said, as the two argued over whether Trump had enough Republican votes in the House to support his border wall plan.
Schumer, D-N.Y., said Trump threw a "temper tantrum" after Tuesday's televised confrontation, saying he and Pelosi "spoke truth to power" by contradicting Trump's "blatant falsehoods" about the wall.
As she works to lock down the few remaining holdouts against her bid to reclaim the House speaker's gavel, Nancy Pelosi and some of her critics are nearing an agreement to smooth her path to the speakership in exchange for leadership term limits.
Former MLB players Valbuena, Castillo killed in vehicle crash
The Cubs shared a picture of Valbuena on Twitter, with the caption "We are saddened by the passing of former Cub Luis Valbuena ". In 592 career games, he hit.254 with a.296 on-base percentage, a.379 slugging percentage, 39 homers and 218 RBIs.
Eovaldi agrees to $68 million, 4-year deal with Red Sox
Those numbers, of course, include the yeomen's work Eovaldi did against NY during the American League Division Series. He also threw a cut-fastball 32 percent of the time, a career high in his second season using the pitch.
John Kelly to Depart as White House Chief of Staff, Trump Says
Mueller III as part of his probe into whether Trump obstructed justice in the Russian Federation investigation. Kelly called Porter "a man of true integrity and honor" and continued to defend him after Porter resigned.
Inhofe, however, has been advocating for his own border funding bill.
"She's not negotiating for me", he said.
"The wall will get built", he insisted. But one Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky Republican who has helped broker several shutdown-averting or -ending deals over the last decade. The Kentucky Republican said "magic" sometimes happens in Congress ahead of Christmas, when lawmakers are eager to leave Washington.
Pelosi raised a hand, then wagged her index finger: "Mr. President, please don't characterize the strength that I bring to this meeting as the leader of the House Democrats, who just won a big victory".
"While he does not think building a 2,000 mile continuous wall is practical, he does support the increased use of physical barriers, surveillance technology, and border patrol agents to secure our border", Kelly said.
Trump wants at least $5 billion for the wall in the next funding package.
Republicans and Democrats are now bickering over a spending bill that would keep the federal government fully funded after December 21.
Pelosi and Schumer have urged Trump to support a measure that includes a half-dozen government funding bills largely agreed upon by lawmakers, along with a separate measure that would fund the Department of Homeland Security at current levels through September 30, the end of the fiscal year. In addition to Homeland Security, other agencies affected include the Interior and Agriculture departments, the Justice Department, NASA, the Commerce Department, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Transportation Department, as well as many smaller ones.
Schiff explained, "We are going to be doing deep dives into Saudi Arabia and North Korea". "If I think it's good for the country, if I think it's good for what will be certainly the largest trade deal ever made - which is a very important thing - what's good for national security, I would certainly intervene if I thought it was necessary".
