Trump attacks Pelosi for snubbing shutdown offer

On Sunday (January 20) the president lashed out at Democrats less than a day after he tried to coax them toward accepting a deal that would end a partial government shutdown.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING (SATURDAY): "That is our plan.

Border security, DACA, TPS, and many other things." On Saturday (January 19) Trump offered what he called a plan to break the deadlock: he would lift the threat of deportation for certain undocumented immigrants if Democrats agreed to his unwavering demand for $5.7 billion for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

But he was careful not to call it a "wall." (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING (SATURDAY): "This is not a 2,000 mile concrete structure from sea to sea.

These are steel barriers in high-priority locations." Democrats quickly panned the deal.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called it "a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives." They maintain that a physical barrier is expensive and ineffective, and that Trump promised Mexico would pay for it.

And they insist Trump re-open the government before they negotiate over government spending.

Democrats and Republicans agreed on a funding bill last month, but Trump refused to sign it without money for a wall.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING (DECEMBER 12, 2018): "I am proud to shut down the government for border security." While he may have felt his Saturday night offer projected reconciliation- (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING (SATURDAY): "...fair, reasonable, and common sense, with lots of compromise..." - by Sunday, Trump had changed from conciliatory, to adversarial.

On Twitter he attacked Pelosi as "radical democrat," saying she'd "lost control," and telling her to "clean up the streets in San Francisco, they are disgusting." Trump also faced a backlash from some anti-immigrant supporters, who called his offer, "amnesty." To them, Trump appeared to respond: "No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer." Trump says a wall is needed to end what he calls a national security and humanitarian crisis at the border.

Government data show illegal border crossings are near record lows.

Meanwhile the shutdown is a growing crisis for many American families.

Over the weekend food pantries opened their doors to federal government workers furloughed by the shutdown or forced to work without pay.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) EASTERN OKLAHOMA FOOD BANK STAFF MEMBER EILEEN BRADSHAW, SAYING: "When they come in they seem really grateful because most of these people have been steadily employed and never have had to ask for help before and they're really unsure how to navigate the assistance system.

These include National Weather Service workers in Oklahoma... (SOUNDBITE) (English) SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK CEO LESLIE BACHO, SAYING: "We're gonna keep providing these distributions throughout the furlough." ...NASA employees in San Francisco, and TSA workers nationwide.

Sunday marked the two-year anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration... (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING (JANUARY 20, 2017): "From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land." ... and the thirtieth day of a partial government shutdown, the longest in the nation's history.
