Trump 'at this moment' doesn't want funding deal without border wall money

The Texas congressman noted that Ryan and other Republican leaders were never in favor of building a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, one of Trump's primary promises during his 2016 presidential campaign. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise later said the House aims to add $5 billion in wall money, as well as disaster relief funding, to the Senate-passed measure, according to Reuters. More than 800,000 federal workers will be facing furloughs or forced to work without pay if a resolution is not reached before funding expires at midnight Friday. The White House has refused to say whether he would still travel there if the shutdown occurs. Conservatives want to keep fighting.

Later, they wrote the "journey from beacon of the GOP's future to emblem of its tumultuous present has Republicans - who, almost to a person, say they like Ryan personally - grappling with whether he is responsible, alongside Trump, for the party's drift".

Ryan barely discussed last year's GOP tax cut bill, which he considers perhaps his most significant accomplishment.

Trump crowed about the vote on Twitter, saying: "Nancy does not have to apologize".

"He unified a very fractious majority and kept it functioning", said Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla.

He said so many senators had departed the Capitol looked like a "ghost town".

"He wants to work with people over here on the Hill, and he's just not used to, in the private sector, having people that are reputedly on his side conspiring to keep him from getting what he promised", said Gohmert. The House had been expected to vote on it Thursday.

Delivering his final speech as House Speaker at the marble lobby of the Library of Congress in the nation's capital, Ryan said, "too often, genuine disagreement quickly gives way to intense distrust", adding that politics of outrage "becomes more industrialized, more cold, more unfeeling".

Others were not so sure. "We're all putting that in the calculator", he said. But the president will ultimately have to sign the bill before it can be approved. "I regret that", Ryan said.

His speakership will be succeeded on January 3 by Nancy Pelosi, a Democratic congresswoman who is now House Minority Leader.

"The president informed us that he will not sign the bill that came over from the Senate last evening, because of his legitimate concerns for border security", House Speaker Paul D. Ryan told reporters following a meeting at the White House. The nuance could provide Trump a way to try to proclaim victory. It requires previously used designs.

And Schumer, in his own words, said a "Trump shutdown will not convince a single Democrat to support bilking the American taxpayer for an ineffective, unnecessary and exorbitantly expensive wall".

And MSNBC and C-SPAN have just announced Speaker Ryan has now canceled his press conference. He ends his time in Congress after a hard two years dominated by the unpredictable decision-making and hardball politics of President Trump, whose coarse leadership style and comments occasionally prompted from the affable Midwestern lawmaker a gentle rebuke.

Ryan, Mitt Romney's running mate for president in 2012, was seen as a small government policy wonk and rising star of the Republican Party. "Would be done by end of year (NOW)".

In a departure from Trump's frequent anti-immigrant rhetoric, Ryan said a fix should include not just border security but also help for immigrants in the USA illegally to stay "and be a part of our American fabric".

Trump has bounced back and forth with mixed messages.
