House GOP Unveils Plan to Avert Government Shutdown

The Washington Post reports that Trump has spoken with multiple advisers about the impact of a potential government shutdown.

President Donald Trump has told confidants that he thinks a shutdown of the federal government might be positive for him politically, according to The Washington Post. He also said that he would plan to blame the hypothetical shutdown on the Democrats, who are pushing for the new funding bill to include protections for undocumented immigrants.

Mr. Trump has told aides that he must be perceived as tough on immigration and the border and that involves scoring money approved by Congress to fund his proposed wall, the report said.

"He's not advocating for a shutdown in any way". "If the Senate Democrats choose to filibuster that, then they will have chosen to shut the government down, something that we do not want to see happen". The timeline was still being debated, but conservatives said they wanted to make sure the next spending deadline isn't until the new year.

"Meeting with "Chuck and Nancy" today about keeping government open and working", Trump tweeted. "That's why we invited [Democrats] over to have a conversation about a deal", Short told reporters at the Capitol Thursday, the report said. "Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes".

The idea was to drop earlier plans for passing a very short-term stopgap spending bill when the last one expired on December 8, and instead call for a vote to extend spending into January.

Back in September, with emergency funding for the hurricane-ravaged cities of Houston and Tampa on the table, Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi were summoned to the White House for what they assumed would be a run-of-the-mill meeting with Donald Trump and Congressional Republican leaders over Chinese food.

Trump's recent public admission that he "doesn't see a deal" to be made regarding the inclusion of an immigration provision in the spending bill seems to contradict Short's assurances.

A number of rank-and-file Democrats have said they will not approve any spending bill that doesn't grant a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrant Dreamers, and have imposed an end-of-year deadline for approving such a bill.
