While Trump said last month that he would be proud to own a shutdown in order to secure funding he has demanded to build a southern border wall, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway argued that the president no longer bears responsibility for the shutdown that's resulted in the closure of approximately a quarter of the federal government, impacting 800,000 federal workers. It has to do with a wall is an immorality between countries.

Pelosi also administered the oath of office to members of the most diverse new Congress ever.

The Democratic package to end the shutdown includes a bill to temporarily fund the Department of Homeland Security at current levels through February 8 as bipartisan talks continue. In the Senate, 53 Republicans hold the majority over 45 Democrats and two independents aligning with Democrats. "They called upon the beauty of our constitution, that our system of checks and balances that protects our democracy, remembering that the legislative branch is Article 1 - the first branch of government is co-equal to the presidency and to the judiciary".

McConnell has dismissed the idea as a "total nonstarter" and a waste of time. Republicans in the Senate have pledged to only vote on measures that have Donald Trump's support - and the president continues to demand his border wall funding.

Nancy Pelosi, the newly-elected Speaker in the House of Representatives, has invited President Donald Trump to deliver his second State of the Union address on January 29.

Mane made it 3-1 on 32 minutes when Salah cushioned a cross perfectly into the Senegalese's path to side-foot high into the net. They led Liverpool by two points at the start of this month and were yet to lose in the Premier League this season.

"When your son looks at you and says, 'Momma, look! It isn't cost effective", Pelosi told reporters late on Thursday.

She added that spending money on "more infrastructure at the ports of entry" and better technology would be more efficient.

The first day of a new Congress is usually like the first day of school.

While Republican women marked some firsts this past election season - like Marsha Blackburn becoming the first female Tennessee senator - the vast majority of these new lawmakers are Democrats. Tlaib was joined by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota), who is the first woman to wear a headscarf, also known as a hijab, in Congress.

While celebrating the Democratic diversity during the swearing-in ceremonies, some on social media highlighted the contrast to the Republican members, who are mostly white men. It was approved, 239-192.

The tweet did not go down well with Manchester United stalwart Gary Neville, who tweeted back telling Pogba to "do one as well". Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to be managing Manchester United beyond this season. "I'll take time getting to know them".

Most speakers have been elected with unanimous support from their party or a smattering of opposition.

"I see myself as a bridge to the next generation of leaders, a recognition of my continuing responsibility to mentor and advance new Members into positions of power and responsibility in the House Democratic Caucus", Pelosi said in a statement at the time.

How has the shutdown come about?

Among the first tasks of the 116th Congress will be ending a almost two-week government shutdown that has left a quarter of federal agencies shuttered due to lapsed funding. "And Senate Republicans are just the right ones to intervene".

They will have that opportunity, as congressional panels now led by Democrats are expected to unleash a barrage of investigations on everything from Trump's income taxes to his ties with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. If the shutdown stretches on for another week ― looking more likely by the day ― it will be the longest government shutdown in history, over a $5 billion dispute in a $4.4 trillion budget.
