Trump's speeches have sparked protests from opponents

In a new CBS News/YouGov poll released late on Friday, Trump, congressional Democrats and congressional Republicans all got lackluster marks for their handling of the government shutdown. Schumer just can not give in against President Trump's demands for border wall funding. Trump said in a post.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill objected to the administration eyeing shifting unspent disaster funding Congress approved previous year for Army Corps of Engineer projects to help hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, Texas and other areas to pay for the wall.

Gov. Ricardo Rossello said the wall should not be funded "on the pain and suffering" of USA citizens who have faced tragedy after a natural disaster. Not only has GOP support increased, it has also hardened. Graham, who said he and Trump talked by telephone on Sunday morning, said the legislative path "is just about shut off" and blamed Pelosi.

Trump only recently backed away from talk of an emergency declaration, after pressing it for days as a way out of the continuing budget standoff.

Additionally, To break things down a little further, 85% of Democrats blame Trump and the Republicans, while 68% of Republicans blame Democrats.

For context, CNN compared Trump's approval rating in January 2019 with the approval rating of President Ronald Reagan in January 1983.

What are the effects of the partial shutdown?

Democrats and the president remain at loggerheads.

House Democrats as well as a smattering of Republicans voted this week in favor of bills to reopen portions of the government.

Democrats say Trump shut the government in a "temper tantrum" by refusing to sign bipartisan funding legislation a year ago that did not include money for his wall. As of this weekend, there is still no clear path ahead to end the shutdown.

He says the shutdown could be solved in 15 minutes. He was trying make the case that unauthorized immigration was a national crisis that merited an appropriation of $5.7 billion for new border wall construction, an assertion Democratic lawmakers denied.

Partisan differences also shape the choices ahead.

Tim Scott says Steve King's comments damage 'our nation as a whole'
Citizens for Life dinner. "The new normal around here is to praise white nationalism as something that shouldn't be shunned". Steve King , R-Iowa, after King questioned why the terms " white nationalist " and "white supremacist" were offensive.

He described an emergency declaration as an "easy way out" and said he would prefer Congress to resolve the problem.

Graham says he thinks Trump is willing to accept the level of wall funding he is seeking, along with some immigration measures Democrats might accept, such as helping immigrants who were illegally brought to the U.S.as minors.

This kind of deal makes sense, and I strongly urge both Republicans and Democrats to come to the table to find a solution like this once again. "I'm not going to do it so fast", Trump said during an event Friday at the White House.

The US government shutdown is now the longest such closure in history.

The US government shutdown over President Donald Trump's demand for border wall funding became the longest in the modern era as it stretched into its 22nd day Saturday with no end in sight.

"You get people ... saying walls are immoral", Trump said, after ticking off a litany of crimes committed both by and against immigrants. "The Democrats are forcing him into a choice of doing the national emergency because they won't sit down and discuss it". But other Republicans have expressed doubts, given the potential legal hurdles such a move may face. Almost half of all Americans (47 per cent) say there is a serious problem at the border but decline to call it a crisis. Among Democrats, just 7 per cent say the situation amounts to a crisis, and 52 per cent say conditions are serious.
