Last week, Pence told Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer that the president would agree to a deal that included $2.5 billion for border security, half the $5 billion he's publicly demanded, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

"We pushed the pause button", McConnell said the day the government was scheduled to partially close, "until the President, from whom we will need a signature, and Senate Democrats, from whom we will need votes, reach an agreement".

Though some shifted the blame not to Democrats or Graham, but on the United States president. "The Democrats, believe it or not, don't call that a wall", he said.

"They can't", he continued. Schumer's spokesman, Justin Goodman, said both sides remain far apart. "He talked about people bringing in diseases and all the rest of that, which wasn't so", Pelosi said.

Some Republican pollsters have also been watching the president's tactics with concern, noting there is little evidence he has grown his electoral coalition after the 2016 election, when he won the White House despite losing the popular vote.

Trump spoke about the wall funding fight during his visit to US troops in Iraq on Wednesday, but he has not made a public statement about it since he returned, other than on Twitter.

It appears as if things are a stand still until the New Year and possibly until Democrats take control of the House of Representatives on January 3.

Trump is seeking US$5 billion to cover the cost of erecting a wall along the US/Mexico border, but Democrats and some within his Republican party have insisted that they will not approve it. Now we have to do it the hard way, with a Shutdown. The Environmental Protection Agency is implementing its shutdown plan at midnight Friday night.

The first paychecks were going out with reduced funds for employees who were assigned to work without pay on the first day of the shutdown, a Saturday, or who began their furlough that day. That includes workers needed for preventing immediate public health threats at more than 800 Superfund hazardous-waste sites. Marco Rubio of Florida.

He said the United States lost "soooo much money on Trade with Mexico under NAFTA, over 75 Billion Dollars a year (not including Drug Money which would be many times that amount), that I would consider closing the Southern Border a "profit making operation". He's failed to do so.
