The U.S. Senate has passed a deal to end the shutdown of the federal government, now in its third day.
Trump wrote that if the "stalemate continues", then Republicans should use the "Nuclear Option" to rewrite Senate rules and try to pass a long-term spending bill with a simple majority rather than the 60 votes needed to pass most legislation - a notion Trump has previously floated to McConnell's repeated dismissal.
After the Senate voted through the temporary funding bill which will plug a gap until 8 February, Republican Senate leader, Mitch McConnell said his party would look at legislation "that would address Daca, border security and related issues, as well as disaster relief". "As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiation on immigration, we are going nowhere". He says Republicans will welcome it whenever they are returned to the Senate minority. "We will vote today to reopen the government, to continue negotiating a global agreement with the commitment that if an agreement isn't reached by February 8, the Senate will immediately proceed to consideration of legislation dealing with DACA". "A government shutdown is not a good way to get an outcome legislatively". Democrats have been pushing a bipartisan compromise that would create a pathway to citizenship for those immigrants, known as "DREAMers".
"I don't know what's confusing about that", Sanders told George Stephanopoulos, after walking through her version of Trump's position on immigration at that moment. Another key Democratic aide complained Schumer attempted to meet the President more than halfway, essentially offering to pay for Trump's signature campaign promise in exchange for protecting the Dreamers. The president has not appeared in public since the shutdown began. But it was unclear exactly how much progress had been made. Depending on their schedules, some were told to stay home or to go to work for up to four hours on Monday to shut their operation, then go home. None will get paid.
The government shutdown remains in effect Monday, after senators failed to come to an agreement to end it late Sunday night.
Services that stop or continue during a federal shutdown vary. However, essential federal services and military activity are continuing.
The "Dreamers" are young people who were brought to the United States illegally as children by their parents or other adults, mainly from Mexico and Central America, and who mostly grew up in the United States.
Last year, Trump announced the end of the DACA programme, which protects undocumented children brought to the U.S. by their parents.
Democrats have withheld support for a temporary funding bill to keep the government open over the DACA issue.
McConnell repeated the offer Monday, promising in firmer language to bring a legislation to protect these almost 700,000 immigrants from deportation to replace the Obama-era regulation DACA, which is set to lapse in the first week of March.
Earlier Sunday, President Donald Trump urged his party to change Senate rules to end the filibuster, a proposal both parties have traditionally shirked away from, and which McConnell rejected.
The number two Republican in the Senate, John Cornyn of Texas, said in a floor speech that Democrats had "shot themselves in the foot, reloaded, and shot themselves in the other foot".
Congress failed last year to pass a complete budget by October 1, the beginning of the federal fiscal year, and the government has been operating on a series of three stopgap spending bills.
