Trump Ends Shutdown Talks, Raising Odds He'll Declare Emergency

By Steven T. Dennis ,  Margaret Talev ,  and Erik Wasson

President Donald Trump closed off the only live negotiation on Capitol Hill to resolve the partial federal government shutdown, now poised to become the longest in U.S. history, just as about 800,000 federal workers are set to miss their first paychecks.
Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday publicly rejected a push by Senate Republican moderates to entice Democrats with a deal that would protect young undocumented immigrants from deportation in addition to funding a border wall. The move appeared to increase the probability that Trump will declare a national emergency on the border and circumvent Congress to fund a wall.
