Manchin: US Has No Better Ally Than Israel

Democrats Say They're Stopping A Pro-Israel Bill So They Can Reopen The Government. They're Doing It Because Democrats Have Soured On Israel And Warmed To Anti-Semitism.

Although conservative allies of the president are urging him to declare a national emergency to build his proposed border wall with military funding, he isn't expected to do that in his remarks.

"Well, I hope that isn't the case", McConnell said.

While announcing the legislation, Gibbs and his co-sponsors laid the blame for the shutdown squarely on the shoulders of their Democratic colleagues.

In a joint statement Monday night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said Democrats must be given equal airtime to rebut Trump, who, "if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation".

When she said "no", Schumer said, Trump got up and said, "Then we have nothing to discuss".

The president doesn't appear to be close to getting a face-saving concession, however. "They should not be caught in the middle of political ploys by politicians who are not serious about securing our border". Democrats offered $1.9 billion for the border wall.

TRT World spoke to Ahmed Rehab, Executive Director of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations, to understand why Republicans chose to introduce this bill now. Food stamps and housing assistance are also at risk. Both officials were viewed unfavorably by 48 percent of the Americans.

McConnell spoke on the Senate floor hours before Trump was to address the nation from the Oval Office about his long-promised border wall, which has been the key sticking point in negotiations that have gone on for close to three weeks.

Democrats are banking on Republicans caving once federal employees go without a paycheck starting Friday.

She was joined by two other Republican Senators - Susan Collins and Cory Gardner - in support of reopening the government without a deal.

Speaking in a dimly lit room, Tlaib told a cheering crowd that she had told one of her young sons: 'We're going to impeach the motherf***er!' Reps. Will Hurd (R-TX), Greg Walden (R-OR), Fred Upton (R-MI), Elise Stefanik (R-NY), John Katko (R-NY) and Brian Fitpatrick (R-PA) voted for the bill as well, as they had on earlier Democratic-backed bills.

Despite the dissent, most Republicans continued to back the president.

In the House, Representative Eliot Engel, a New York Democrat and chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, is pushing the Syria provisions as a separate bill. Let's get our priorities right'.

"I haven't been sidelined", he said last week, according to CNN.

"He seemed very resolute", said Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin. Despite my strong support for Israel, I oppose this bill because it clearly violates the Constitution.

Democrats are also working to sway some moderate and skeptical Republicans to abandon Trump on the wall. The measure directs the Trump administration to impose sanctions on entities doing business with the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, such as selling petroleum products or aircraft parts. "Innocent people, a lot of them solid workers".

Meanwhile, Tlaib's Democratic colleagues have taken a more nuanced posture.

Pelosi suggested Trump, a man of inherited wealth, doesn't empathize with their struggles. He said the White House ignored those statistics when issuing the updated request.

"I've worked closely with you on BDS, @MarcoRubio, and disagree with you here".
