Neither the president nor Democratic congressional leaders have shown any willingness to compromise.
But if President Donald Trump is making his case that his signature anti-illegal immigration measure is urgently needed, he's not convincing Americans that a government shutdown is the way to get the wall built. I will declare a national emergency. But Trump said Friday that he wasn't rushing to use that option, which would be challenged in court and, if not overturned, establish a precedent expanding the power of future Democratic presidents.
Scaramucci said the fact the president made a pledge to build a wall the cornerstone of his campaign explains why he is "obsessed" with the plan now and described the fight as "an ego grudge they have to figure out a way to put aside".
Over the last few days, President Donald Trump has attempted to reframe his government shutdown, backtracking on his initial claims of ownership and claiming he has been sitting in the White House waiting for congressional democrats to come to him.
Republican Richard Shelby of Alabama, the chairman of the Appropriations Committee, acknowledged the dilemma, especially as the shutdown continues with no end in sight.
Mr. Pence denied on Thursday that he had ever told lawmakers that Mr. Trump would sign the bill, pressed personally by the majority leader, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, to keep the government open without funding for the wall. "The Republican-controlled Senate and a handful of senators will make that decision". The Post-ABC poll pegged the blame on Trump and Republicans at 53 percent to 29 percent on Democrats.
This morning around 7 a.m., Trump tweeted, "Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, nearly all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin' James Comey, a total sleaze!" Milstead said a barrier of steel slats that border agents can see through and animals and waters can pass through - much like what exists at the border now - could work.
"They're not going to write us a check", Hannity replied.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pahm-PAY'-oh) says American diplomats' morale remains "good" despite the government shutdown that's left many of them working without pay. Democrats have said they would support $1.6 billion for more general border security, but not specifically for a wall.

Harry Kane scores early as Tottenham cruise past Cardiff
And it was 3-0 in the 26th minute as Kane helped Sissoko's pass on to Son, who fired across Neil Etheridge . So easy for Spurs as Sissoko feeds Kane, who lays the ball off for Son to score from the angle.
As the shutdown drags into a fourth week, each side has blamed the other.
But there was another election, in November, and the outcome of that is that the Democrats now control the House and they refuse to give Trump money for a wall.
Working without pay, TSA employees have been calling in sick in increasing numbers since the shutdown began.
Jennifer Lawless, a politics professor at the University of Virginia, said she believes Trump and Republicans will lose the game of chicken as furloughed workers, airport travelers, tourists and others "experience the consequences of political dysfunction firsthand".
A solution couldn't come soon enough for federal workers who got pay statements Friday but no pay.
But Trump has refused to back down and threatened to veto the bill to restore funding.
Meanwhile, a group of Senate Republicans led by Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security panel, said they'll introduce legislation that would pay salaries of "essential" government workers during the shutdown. They have refused further negotiations until the government is reopened after being partially shut down since December 22.
