Senate passes bill guaranteeing back pay for workers after shutdown ends

Trump used the backdrop of the Rio Grande border river at McAllen, Texas, to ramp up what has already turned into a hugely messy political fight with Democratic opponents, resulting in the shutdown of swaths of the United States government.

The mixed news came Thursday afternoon, when senators voted unanimously to authorize the eventual post-shutdown funding of back pay. I said, "They're going to pay for it". President Trump is not expected to declare a national emergency while there, though people close to the President caution this could change.

At the border, the president repeated a claim he had made earlier in the day - that he never said Mexico would write a check for the border wall. "I hope it works". "I'm not prepared to endorse that right now; I want to think about it some more, I want to dig in to some of the historical record as to why that power is there, how it's been used in the past". While each situation was unique, Republicans have been blamed for majority, although Democrats took the blame for the most recent, a short affair back in January, even though Republicans controlled the House, Senate and White House at the time.

Analysts say the declaration would likely be challenged in court as a case of presidential overreach, in which case the wall still could face being blocked.

White House officials, even those who feel they've "won" the shutdown messaging so far, say they believe things will take a turn starting Friday, when hundreds of thousands of federal workers won't receive their paychecks. "It requires an agreement between a Democratic House, the Democrats in the Senate and the President". "Somebody has got to get some energy to fix this", Graham said.

"It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier", he continued.

Trump disputed that on Thursday, saying "I didn't pound the table".

"The notion that we're going to track every Western Union bit of money that's being sent to Mexico - good luck with that", Obama said.

"I don't have temper tantrums", he said. "The Opposition Party & the Dems know we must have Strong Border Security, but don't want to give "Trump" another one of many wins!"

On Thursday, US media reported the White House had asked the Army Corps of Engineers to look into the possibility of diverting funds allocated for relief projects in areas damaged by natural disasters, such as Puerto Rico and Florida.
