Trump's government shutdown threat, looming debt ceiling

Trump's government shutdown threat, looming debt ceiling

Finally, Republicans should support the potential shutdown because Republican voters, who put President Trump and Republican Congressmen in office, expect progress towards conservative goals, not consistent surrender to Democratic obstruction. "Even when we were a tiny fraction of our present size and breadth, the framers of our Constitution understood the need for holding ourselves together, whatever our differences".

Other U.S. officials have been trying reassure the financial markets that no default is imminent.

Accusing the president of "divorcing" Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., the editorial board attacked President Trump's recent criticisms for Republican leadership. About three-quarters of them believe that collusion with the Russians, or any coverup of Trump campaign ties to Russia, would constitute an impeachable offense. "Could have been so easy-now a mess!"

"General John Kelly is doing a fantastic job as Chief of Staff", Trump said.

The order also limits the trading of some existing bonds that are owned by Venezuela's public sector. Earlier this month, that body declared its powers superior to all other branches of government.

"If the president pursues this path, against the wishes of both Republicans and Democrats, as well as the majority of the American people, he will be heading toward a government shutdown which nobody will like and which won't accomplish anything", Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer of NY said. Even after the White House tried to quell reports that Trump and McConnell were locked in an intense feud, Trump continued to attack the Senate leader publicly.

Sanders' answers are part of the White House's ongoing attempt to cloud that reality. Why? Both said they expected the debt ceiling would be raised. But one leadership aide pointed out that the agreement in April during the omnibus stipulated that there would be no new fencing or concrete used for construction, while funding for replacement fencing was fine. "We'll do this before the debt ceiling", Ryan said during a visit to a Boeing plant in Washington state Thursday. Democrats, moreover, know that Trump is just "crazy" enough to follow through on his threats.

"I think the relationships are fine", she told reporters. Congressional leaders want to start moving legislation next month, but they also face deadlines for raising the debt ceiling and funding the government when they return from recess.

Congress must pass annual spending bills around the end of the federal fiscal year on September 30 to fund much of the USA government. The physical wall is Mr. Trump's personal preoccupation. If it doesn't do so, the government will have to prioritize which of its bills it will pay.

Percent of Americans See Trump as Divider, Poll Finds
Three-quarters of Republican voters (74%) said Trump's behavior hasn't "had an impact either way" on how white supremacists feel. Voters also said they trust news media more than they trust Trump to tell the truth, by a margin of 54 percent to 36 percent.

Moody's Investors Service said it would consider stripping the United States of its top-notch rating in the event of a default but not over late or skipped payments on non-debt obligations if the government ran short of funds. Congressional Republicans, in other words, are scared, and so they would prefer to play nice and negotiate with Democrats, and, if that means sacrificing the wall, so be it.

"The only problem I have with Mitch McConnell is that, after hearing Repeal & Replace for 7 years, he failed!" "That should NEVER have happened!" Politico says Trump is working to arrange a get-together with McConnell, Ryan, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

"Trade is a victor for America", McConnell told Kentucky farmers and lawmakers.

McConnell said the assumption that every free trade agreement is a losing proposition for America is "largely untrue".
