The Senate had good news and bad news for the 800,000 federal employees who won't get paychecks on Friday because of the partial government shutdown: Yes, they will be paid, but no, not until there's a deal to restore funding.

In McAllen, Texas, Mr. Trump visited a border patrol station where he was briefed by agents on the situation at the border. "They have women tied up, they have tape over their mouths, electrical tape".

The president and congressional Democrats remain at an impasse over his demand for $5.7 billion for a wall along the southern border. He always said Mexico would pay through trade deals, Mr. Trump insisted. He also canceled a trip to the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, Switzerland, scheduled for later this month, citing Democrats' "intransigence" over the wall. "It's in your hands", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Thursday on the floor.

Trump traveled to McAllen, Texas Thursday on the 20th day of a partial government shutdown. "I mean, we have the absolute right to declare a national emergency", Trump told Sean Hannity in an exclusive interview.

Mourinho free to return to Real
He reigned at Old Trafford for just two and a half years and won an Europa League and EFL Cup titles for the club. Sacked Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has opened the door to a return to Inter Milan and Real Madrid .

But pressed on a timeline for doing so, he said he would "see what happens" over the coming days. And when I said Mexico will pay for the wall, in front of thousands and thousands of people, obviously they're not going to write a check.

Trump, who revels in telling stories about his negotiating skills as a NY real estate magnate, has not managed to get the Democrats to budge on his demand for the $5.7 billion.

"A total waste of time", Trump tweeted.

"If this doesn't work out, I probably will do it, I would nearly say definitely", Mr. Trump told reporters, adding later, "If we don't make a deal, I would say 100 percent but I don't want to say 100 percent". "Somebody has got to get some energy to fix this", Graham said.

Longer US government shutdown will hit economy, says Fed chief
At the same time, Powell said there are concerns in financial markets about slowing global growth and rising trade tensions. The Fed has projected two more rate hikes, but Powell is now signaling the Fed will be "patient" on any further hikes.

Trump disputed that on Thursday, saying "I didn't pound the table. I would nearly say definitely", Trump said when asked if he'd make such a move, the Times reports. "It's common sense. Look, we're not going anywhere".

However, Trump's opponents say he is hyping the danger posed to Americans to stir xenophobia for his own political gains.

Sen. Rubio added, "Maybe it's an exaggeration, but my point is we've got to be very careful about endorsing broad uses of executive power in our Republic". We're not going to commit any crimes.

"Everyone wants us to win this battle", Trump said.
