The US Senate failed two attempts at once to stop the “shutdown”

Two bills aimed at ending the “shutdown”, failed on Thursday in a vote in the US Senate. One document proposed by the Republicans, the second Democrats, both bills did not receive the required number of votes in his support, Reuters reported.

The bill of the Republicans meant stop “shutdown” subject to funding, the wall on the border with Mexico, the Democrats in its version of the bill proposed to resume the work of the U.S. government without such funding.

Trump is seeking to allocate $ 5.7 billion for the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico, the Democrats are against. Tramp’s requirement and refusal of the Democrats to please him led to a record for the duration of the “shutdown”.

According to the Associated Press, a few minutes after the vote, the leader of the democratic minority in the Senate Chuck Schumer spent half an hour in the office of the leader of the Republican majority in the Senate Mitch McConnell. “We are discussing,” Schumer told reporters.

Press Secretary of the White House Sarah Sanders after the failed Senate attempts to stop the “shutdown” said Trump might consider stopping “shutdown” if it provided “a great advance” on the wall. She also confirmed that Republican and Democrat leaders in the Senate are trying to agree among themselves.

Meanwhile, the speaker of the House of Representatives, a member of the Democratic Party Nancy Pelosi has already commented to journalists on trump’s new idea of a “big advance” on the wall. According to her, she does not consider it a “reasonable agreement”.
