Graham says Trump isn’t giving in on southern border wall

US President Donald Trump and others listen to a prayer during a meeting about border security in the Cabinet Room of the White House

Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, encouraging Trump on Friday to declare a national emergency "now". I will declare a national emergency. "See if we can get a deal", Graham said. "If we can't at the end of three weeks, all bets are off".

Amid the longest government shutdown in United States history, a majority say Donald Trump bears more responsibility for it than the Democrats in Congress, and the President's disapproval rating has climbed five points since last month, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS.

Trump continued to blame Democrats for the impasse.

The increase in support is sharpest among Republicans, whose backing for Trump's long-standing campaign promise jumped 16 points in the past year, from 71 per cent to 87 per cent.

Last weekend, senior White House staff traveled to Camp David for meetings with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, who has led shutdown talks, and officials pretaped interviews with television networks so they could get their message out on the Sunday shows.

Trump has expressed interest in a broader immigration overhaul, but says he first wants the Supreme Court to address the class of immigrants known as "Dreamers".

Some of Trump's fellow Republicans are warning against a disaster declaration, saying it would undercut Congress's power under the U.S. Constitution to control government spending - and make it easier for a future Democratic president to bypass Capitol Hill. About a third of those surveyed - 32 percent - thought Democrats were more at fault, while 9 percent blamed each side equally.

"I don't want to speak for the president... but I'm confident what I just described with a few other things would be a deal acceptable to the White House and a lot of Democrats, and I'm just so frustrated we can't get in a room and hammer it out", Graham said.

"Put an end to the shutdown and put everything on the table", Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, said on ABC's "This Week" show.

May warns of catastrophe if lawmakers don't back Brexit deal
Northern Ireland Secretary Karen Bradley said a no-deal exit would create a "feeling of unrest". Last week the government was defeated twice in the Commons on Brexit votes.

"It's a bad precedent", Republican Senator Chuck Grassley said on CNBC.

Sen. Joe Manchin III, D-W.Va., said in a statement Sunday that given Trump's suggestion late last week that he does not immediately plan to issue an emergency declaration, "it's time for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring up the House passed appropriations bills that would finally reopen government". Most also reject the President's assertion that there is an illegal-immigration crisis on the southern border.

Most Democrats say they agree on the need for border security, but say there is no national security crisis and believe a wall would be an impractical waste of money.

Trump has threatened repeatedly to declare a national emergency to break the stalemate and to order the start of construction of a wall, although on Friday, he retreated from his previously aggressive rhetoric by noting that he is not ready to take such a step now.

"I tried to see if we could open up the government for a limited period of time to negotiate a deal", Graham said.

Johnson also accused Democrats of minimizing what he called a "crisis" at a border.

While Trump has said he "can relate" to their loss of income, he says a broken border is more damaging than a government shutdown. "As a candidate, this is what he talked about, and if there's any mandate he can claim from his election, it was better border security and keeping this nation safe".

He denied this allegation and insisted that the White House couldn't be in chaos due to the fact that "there's nearly nobody in the W.H. but me, and I do have a plan on the Shutdown".
