United States needs 'good shutdown' in September to fix 'mess': Donald Trump

A split in the GOP over Trump's proposed border structure allowed Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer's party to walk away from spending negotiations this week with a goody bag of their priorities and assurance that no money would be spent on a wall

Trump, taking to Twitter, also vented frustration about the 60-vote threshold on legislation in the Senate thanks to the filibuster.

"One of his options was that we need to elect more Republicans in 2018 and I'm certainly for that", Blunt said.

Trump earlier threatened to force a government shutdown, tweeting: "Our country needs a good "shutdown" in September to fix mess!"

Top Senate Republican dismissed the idea of changing filibuster rules for a spending bill.

To secure the confirmation of Neil M. Gorsuch, Republican leaders changed the rules on Supreme Court nominees to require only 51 votes - a simple majority.

Screen grab from C-SPAN of Sen. "This is nothing new here", he told reporters at the Capitol. That committee also invited Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan to testify.

It does not include funding to begin construction of his famed wall along the Southern border and continues money for Planned Parenthood.

Trump, Mulvaney and others in the administration spoke out as Capitol Hill lawmakers prepared to vote on a $1 trillion bipartisan spending package that would avert a government shutdown until at least October 1, the start of the next budget year. Now President Trump wants to shut government down again & make you pay. SAD!

Homeland Security secretary John Kelly and Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney made the White House's most forceful case yet that the bipartisan budget deal amounted to a major win for the White House and a loss for Democrats. The House will vote on the bill today (May 3) and it is expected to pass there and the Senate before being signed by the president this week. Hopefully, Republicans in Congress will do for the next budget what they did for this one: "ignore President Trump's demands, work with Democrats, and get it done", Sen.

Mulvaney added, "We've got a lot to do between now and September. They wanted to try and make this president look like he could not govern", Mulvaney said.

"In the last 100 years, or the last 50 years, or the last 10 years, we (Republicans) have been in the minority more than we've been in the majority" said Blunt.

Mummies Discovered In Chamber In Egypt
The Touna el-Gabal site existed during the Greco-Roman period, which prevailed between third century NC and third century AD. In April, eight mummies were uncovered inside a 3,500-year-old tomb in the southern city of Luxor.

"I think the total spending is $ 347 million on that, but we have not done the math yet", Mulvaney stated.

"The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicansand Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there!"

"There is an overwhelming majority on a bipartisan basis not interested in changing the way the Senate operates on the legislative calendar and that will not happen", McConnell said.

The tweet comes after Congress reached a compromise to avoid a government shutdown on Sunday and fund the government through September 30.

That current deal, which has yet to be voted on and funds the government through September, simply set Republicans and Democrats on a collision course further down the road - a confrontation that Trump seems eager to embrace.

Chelsea hopeful of sealing title at West Brom, feels Courtois
This step was big for us, a big win. "Now we need to do another step". "Also, we must know to play against West Brom is not easy". Only Manchester United (13) have won more Premier League titles. "So we have to finish the season strong".

"The American people won and the president negotiated that victory for them".
