Real estate and reality television mogul Donald Trump took to the airwaves in 2013 to criticize President Barack Obama during the weeks-long shutdown of the US government. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked.

Over the weekend, Trump had encouraged the Senate's Republican leaders to invoke the "nuclear option" - a procedural manoeuvre to change the chamber's rules to allow passage of a budget by a simple majority of 51 votes to end the shutdown.

But Senate leaders have been wary of such a move in the past, as it could come back to haunt them the next time the other party holds a majority.

Democratic and independent senators who relented in the standoff said they did not necessarily trust McConnell, but had faith that the bipartisan negotiators, including Sens.

Republican attacks on Schumer's decision to couple a stopgap spending bill with immigration were "no doubt causing heartburn with some Democrats", said Jim Manley, once a top aide to former Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Mitch McConnell, tried to push the vote up to Sunday night, hoping to end the shutdown quickly, but Mr. Schumer objected.

White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday morning that Schumer had not exactly offered the White House what they wanted on the wall, arguing Democrats had offered "to authorize" the wall, but not to appropriate funds for it.

On this shutdown, Democratic rhetoric was hampered by three factors: first, while they agree with wanting to resolve the issue, outside the hardcore Democratic base, voters don't particularly have as much of a pressing interest in the priorities related to DACA; second, the Democrats were using abbreviations like "short term CR" and "CHIP" that voters do not understand; and third, the likelihood of emerging with a "big win" from this shutdown was very unlikely, particularly given that the normally fractious House Republicans remained united behind Paul Ryan in his hardline approach. The Working Families Party, a grass-roots group that has been building chapters in several 2018 battlegrounds, said in statement that Democrats would make it harder to get out their votes.

Congress met for a rare Saturday session, where leaders of both sides were meant to hammer out their differences to prevent the shutdown from stretching into Monday.
