In the dispute over the financing of a US President, Donald Trump required a wall on the border with Mexico are growing Concerns about a renewed “Shutdown” in the United States.
trump is the acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney told the TV station NBC on Sunday, he “could not exclude the possibility of a renewed stoppage of Parts of the government” absolutely. Until next Friday Trumps the Republicans and the opposition Democrats in the Congress will have time to agree on a budget act. Trump demanded that the funds for the construction of the wall are included. The Democrats reject their financing.
According to the information of traders, from Sunday, the negotiations made no progress. “I think the talks are Stalled,” said the chief negotiator for the Democrats, Senator Richard Shelby, the channel Fox News. “But we are working on and hope that we can reach our goal.” Democratic Senator Jon Tester told the same station that he had hope that a compromise could be reached. Tester but would not rule out a Failure of the negotiations.
Trump accused the leadership of the Democrats to want a compromise in the talks to prevent. “I don’t think the Democrats will be allowed in the border Committee of their leaders to make an agreement,” wrote Trump on Sunday on Twitter. “They offer very little money for the urgently-needed border wall.” Out of nowhere, the Democrats demanded now, in addition, illegal migrants through border protection officials to limit.
Only on 25. January had been completed a five-week “Shutdown” – it was the longest in the history of the United States. Trump had wanted to force the Democrats to 5.7 billion dollars for the construction of the wall. Instead, Democrats and Republicans in Congress and the President agreed on a transitional budget from three weeks. In this period – the on 15. February expires – should be a compromise.
Trump has otherwise threatened if a new “Shutdown”, or with the Declaration of a state of emergency on the border.

Mulvaney made it on Sunday clear that Trump will no household law to sign the hold is no money for the wall, or just an “absurdly low number,” such as 800 million dollars leg. He indicated, however, that Trump agree to a lower sum than the originally requested $ 5.7 billion, and a lack of resources from other pots could get.
“you can’t take a Shutdown off the table, and you can’t take 5.7 billion up from the table,” said Mulvaney. He added: “If you land somewhere in the middle, then you will probably see that the President says: “Yes, okay. And then I’ll find the money somewhere else.””
Mulvaney said: “There are pots of money to which all of the President without a state of emergency Declaration to access. And there are such, to which he had no access without this Declaration.” Mulvaney stressed during another appearance on the channel Fox News: “All of this will be legal.” He added that Trump will build the wall on each case “with or without Congress”.
