Democratic leaders emerged first from a brief discussion at the White House yesterday afternoon to say that the president had a "temper tantrum because he could not get his way. he just walked out of the meeting". He left a Republican lunch boasting of "a very, very unified party", but GOP senators have been publicly uneasy as the standoff ripples across the lives of Americans and interrupts the economy.
"If you don't understand financial insecurity, then you would have a policy that takes pride in saying, 'I'm going to keep the government shut down for months or years unless you totally agree to my position, '" she said.
Earlier at the White House, Trump told journalists that if he cannot get his way, he could declare a national emergency - a measure that allows him to bypass Congress and take the wall funds he needs from the military.
"Those documents were never subpoenaed by the Republicans and so they were able to just produce a whitewashed report that probably was written by someone on the presidential staff", Speier said.
Earlier, Cornyn called the standoff "completely unnecessary and contrived. This obviously is not working". Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia said she wants border security.

Some lawmakers said the shutdown was not a drag on oversight. "He thinks maybe they could just ask their father for more money", Pelosi said. "That pressure is going to build".
President Trump abruptly walked out of talks on ending a United States government shutdown yesterday, calling them a "total waste of time" after Democrats refused to budge on funding the wall he wants to build on the southern border.
Democrats accused the Trump administration of using the shutdown to try to delay oversight, citing what they said was an effort to postpone acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker's appearance before the House Judiciary Committee until mid-February.
But the meeting breakup put an end to that idea.
The vice president told reporters that the Democratic leaders also objected to Trump's characterization of the situation at the southern border, which Pence referred to as "a humanitarian and security crisis". He blamed illegal immigration for what he said was a scourge of drugs and violence in the USA and asked: "How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?"

Asked about the timing of the operation during trade talks, Lu said resolving issues would help both countries and the world. Beijing on Friday cut bank-reserve requirements amid slowing growth at home and pressure from the USA tariffs.
"I prefer that we get this resolved the old-fashioned way", Thune said. A person unauthorized to discuss the situation said additional "creative options" were being considered, including shifting money from other accounts or tapping other executive authorities for the wall.
Trump claimed Wednesday that his address had been a success.
Trump has made his proposed border wall the sole focus of the shutdown: Unless he can secure some $5 billion for the project, he will not agree to any budget proposal that would fully reopen the government. Asked by ABC reporter Jonathan Karl if he would be willing to reopen the government for the sake of federal workers, Trump asked him if he would do so in his place.
House tax committee Chairman Richard Neal said he meant to hold hearings on the shutdown's impact on the Internal Revenue Service and its ability to distribute tax refunds.
In an off-the-record lunch with television anchors ahead of his speech, Trump suggested his aides had pushed him to give the address and travel to the border and that he personally did not believe either would make a difference, according to two people familiar with the meeting.
