"Bye-bye": Trump walks out of meeting with congressional leaders

LevinTV host Mark Levin blasted Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi as "pathological liars" Tuesday night on "Hannity", reacting to President Trump's Oval Office address on border security and the Democratic response.

The Trump administration continues to seek funding to lock up even more immigrants in this abusive system, refusing to put resources into developing, testing, and ramping up community-based programs that would allow many people to go to their immigration hearings and meet their reporting obligations without being locked up.

Mr Trump has threatened to declare a national emergency over the "crisis" at the border, bypassing congressional approval to build the wall.

Mr. Trump and congressional Democrats are now at an impasse over wall funding, as the president has refused to sign any legislation ending the partial government shutdown without sufficient money for the wall.

Schumer said the shutdown "ought to end now" and warned that federal workers could miss a paycheck without a speedy resolution to the impasse. "Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!"

Other Democratic senators also said they were unmoved by Trump's demand for a barrier.

"I was a little bit anxious that when I heard Stephen Miller was leading this speech creation that we were going to have something really outrageous", he said, referring to Trump's senior policy adviser.

"We were all behind the president on the border security issue", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, standing beside the president after the luncheon.

Pelosi said Trump "is being unfair" and that his address from the Oval Office last night was "not factual".

"Again, we saw a temper tantrum because he couldn't get his way".

President Donald Trump gained an unlikely ally in his push for a wall along the southern border of the United States, the man who served as border patrol chief under former President Barack Obama.

"I didn't hear the president say anything that would change my mind. Our responsibility is to do what we think is in the best interest of the American people and the effective and efficient operations of their government".

"We have been negotiating", she said.

"We are grateful to the more than 51,000 agents across the country who remain focused on the mission and are respectful to the traveling public", said TSA spokesman Michael Bilello. Let's talk strictly about border security in the long run, not just a short-term fix. Instead, he is still demanding that American taxpayers pay at least $5.7 billion for his wall, which can't pass either chamber of Congress and of course Mexico is not paying for.

She says: "The fact is: President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis, and must reopen the government".

As many as half a dozen GOP senators have said the government should reopen while border security negotiations with Democrats continue.
