  • Mike Pence & Republicans Press Conference After Meeting With President Trump & Democrats 1/9/19. Vice President Pence and GOP Leaders on Government Shutdown. Vice President Pence and Republican leaders speak to reporters after talks to break the impasse over border security and end the 19-day-old government shutdown falter when President Trump walks out calling them a “total waste of time.”Following what, by all accounts, was a wholly unproductive — if not disastrous — meeting at the White House between President Donald Trump and Congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle, Vice President Mike Pence claimed nothing has changed on his side of the bargaining table.“There will be no deal without a wall,” Pence said — articulating the president’s position. “There will be no deal without the priorities the president has put on the table.”Pence went on to deny Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer‘s (D-NY) account of the meeting, that Trump threw a “temper tantrum” and stormed out.“The president walked into the room, passed out candy! It’s true!” Pence said. “I don’t recall him ever raising his voice or slamming his hand.”Pence added, “And he left the room today because Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said even if he gave her what she wanted she would never agree to the border sec. priorities that we have on the table. That was unacceptable.”Then, exhibiting what for him was a rare bit of fire, Pence went off of Democratic leaders.“When the Speaker of the House comes to the table with the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, after we’ve made days of good faith negotiations, with an offer on the table, and their only answer is, ‘We will not negotiate until we reopen the government’…And when the president says, ‘Well, if I gave you exactly what you are asking for, would you agree to border security and a wall? And they say ‘No,’ I think the American people deserve better,” he said.

    I think the politicians should not be paid! I think the government workers should be paid before them!

    @Pierre Flamand , Yea, I'd agree but Trump is all about enriching his private businesses so I don't see this happening; especially with Trump

    @Una Creary Why do you want to pick a fight. I don't care if he's a millionaire or billionaire. But somehow it matters to you. Why does the amount of his wealth intrigue you? If you were a man, I would have used a metaphor like: Do you have penis envy?

    Watch a movie called "The Death of a Nation" and you will understand why there is resistance against border security.

    The Democrats are playing games with with our American lives just to fight Trump who is not a politician, thank God, and is it ok to say that. The wall needs to happen. Period! He was the only one who spearheaded this from the beginning of his campaign and enough time has passed with their stalling. The wall will work. I’m very sorry about Americans and wonderful Americans that could have a freeze with their government job. I hope and feel something will work out in the end with what ever losses they m...
