Defying pundits GOP share of Latino vote steady under Trump Credit

US President Donald Trump has said that he plans to visit the country's southwestern border with Mexico early next year for groundbreaking.

"We don't want to unnecessarily burden them, but they are aware that the government is shut down and Daddy's paycheck isn't coming", said Ortega, who added that her family does not live paycheck to paycheck but said she has already reconsidered things like getting her vehicle washed and whether to buy coffee in the morning.

The president and first lady Melania Trump also sent Christmas greetings to Americans across the United States on Christmas Day.

"I can't tell you when the government is going to reopen", he said. "I can tell you it's not going to be open until we have a wall, a fence, whatever they'd like to call it".

In a Christmas Day appearance in the Oval Office, Mr Trump issued a lengthy defence of his desire for a wall, saying it is the only way to stop drugs and human traffickers from entering the US.

"You have to have a wall, you have to have protection", he said.

Trump has made clear in public comments and tweets that he believes Powell is hurting the USA economy and contributing to stock market losses - two things that need to be strong to improve Trump's re-election chances. They said they just want their jobs back.

US President Donald Trump speaks to the press aboard Air Force One in flight as he travels from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, to Bedminster, New Jersey, June 29, 2018.

The chair of the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-North Carolina, who encouraged Trump to shut the government down over his demand for $5 billion for the wall, accused Democrats of not budging on their refusal to fund the wall because of their "hatred for the president".

Some 800,000 government workers are affected. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer has said the wall funding will "never pass the Senate" and urged Trump to abandon the request so the government can be funded.

"It's going to all work out", he said, adding that some furloughed federal workers also favor the construction of border wall Trump says will discourage illegal immigration.

Paul Shearon, the president of the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers, in a statement said the union has not heard from a single member who supports Trump's position. I want everybody to understand: No one is working without getting paid. Many national parks across the country have also been closed, and the Internal Revenue Service planned to close taxpayer assistance lines, among other operations, weeks ahead of filing season. "I'll tell you, retirement's looking more attractive all the time". Many rank-and-file workers have gone to social media with stories of the financial hardship they expect to face because of the shutdown.
