The newest: Trump goes to the border when the shutdown continues

WASHINGTON (AP) – The latest news about the closure by the government (all times locally):

The press secretary of the White House, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, says that President Donald Trump will travel to the border between the US and Mexico on Thursday when a partial stoppage of the government continues.

Sanders says Trump "will meet with those on the front lines of the national security and humanitarian crisis, and more details will be announced shortly."

Trump shows no signs of attraction to his demand for more than $ 5 billion for a wall along the border between the United States and Mexico.

The shutdown has lasted more than two weeks so far, with little indication that this will end soon.

Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi plans to use individual accounts in the coming days to reopen agencies, starting with the Treasury Department to ensure that people receive their tax refunds.

New representative House Democrats are planning to step up pressure on President Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers to reopen the government.

This comes after there was no breakthrough on the weekend to end a long-term partial elimination of the government, with Trump firmly in his financing needs at the border wall.

Trump showed no signs of his demand for more than $ 5 billion for a wall along the US-Mexico border, although on Sunday he offered to build it with steel instead of concrete, a democratic concession.

With the closing of a third week, many Republicans looked nervous from the sidelines while hundreds of thousands of federal workers went without paying and government disruptions hit the lives of ordinary Americans.
