Trump jokes shutdown is a 'present' from Democrats

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters while touring

Vice President also attacked Democrats in a statement while flying to Egypt to begin a trip around the Middle East.

But most federal workers will not be paid. Trump reportedly called the New York Democrat and invited him personally.

Despite frantic negotiations throughout Friday Republicans failed to muster the 60 votes necessary to vote on a short-term funding measure.

Mr McConnell and Mr Schumer insisted they were still committed to finding an agreement that restores government funding as soon as possible.

U.S. federal services and military operations deemed essential will continue, but thousands of government workers will be sent home without pay until the crisis is resolved.

The last time the government shut down was in 2013 over President Obama's healthcare plan. "Shutdown coming? We need more Republican victories in 2018!"

White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney speaks during a briefing on a possible government shutdown at the White House in Washington D.C. January 19, 2018. The Republicans are pointing fingers at Democratic demands on DACA, protection for immigrants brought here illegally as children. It came after a fruitless last-minute negotiating session at the White House between Mr. Trump and Senator Chuck Schumer of NY, the Democratic leader.

"They don't oppose anything in the bill, but they're opposing the bill", Mulvaney said.

Donald Trump has blamed Democrats for the failure of budget talks that have forced the United States government to shut down.

Given that unwillingness to stick to a deal, Democrat came up with a shutdown name of their own - which also became the top trending phrase on Twitter worldwide - the Trump Shutdown.

"We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands", said Sanders. The last USA shutdown happened in 2013 over health care policy lasted for 16 days.

President Donald Trump has been a confounding factor throughout the process, never offering a clear path for Republicans on what a deal with the Democrats should look like.

President Donald Trump rescinded DACA in March and gave Congress six months to find a legal solution.

He argued that immigration reform needed to be handled separately from the spending bill.
