8:57 am
china trade dispute and last week's interest rate rise by the federal reserve are also being blamed is what top senators from both the main parties have been saying about this current standoff republicans in the house and in the set up believe the house is provision for five billion dollars in border funding plus additional disaster funding was completely original i was glad to vote to advance that legislation yesterday my colleagues in opera are proud to stand with the american people on this subject for the safety of american families and the health and security of our communities but this time. this democrats have rejected that reasonable request they've refused to meet present drop have why and provide even one fifth one fifth of the resources for the border they were willing to provide just a few months ago. make no mistake the trump shutdown is not about border security
8:58 am
all of the proposals we've made contain over a billion dollars in new border security money the same amount allocated last year by both parties and even the president agreed to and the trumpet ministration has barely even spent any of the border security money from last year so the trump shutdown isn't over border security it's because president trump is demanding billions of dollars for an expensive ineffective wall that the majority of americans don't support. well john hendren has been following events in washington . the two sides seem far apart in the government shutdown president trump met with republican leaders in the white house if he is negotiating with democrats he is not doing it at that meeting and the senate came into session and a bit of senate theater the republican leader mitch mcconnell came out in a red christmas sweater saying he hoped that they could wrap up business and
8:59 am
everybody could go on to their christmas holiday but that does not seem likely to happen terribly soon and that is because democrats know the president does not have the votes in the u.s. senate in order to pass his five billion dollars in border wall funding that he wants for the southern border you need a supermajority in the senate in order to pass legislation like that and he simply does not yet have the votes so the two sides remain at an impasse and chuck schumer the democratic leader told the president speaking on the floor of the senate if you want to open the government you must abandon the wall and he went on to say the wall will come not today not next week not next year so it does seem like the two sides are far apart at monday and tuesday are holidays the full impact of the government shutdown probably will not be felt until wednesday and of course democrats may simply wait until january third that is when democrats take over
9:00 am
control of the u.s. house of representatives and at that time they believe that they can definitively stop funding for the president's wall so the democrats believe time is on their side that these twenty people have died for a tsunami struck the coast of indonesia it hit coastlines along the sunday straits between two individuals whose biggest islands the country's disaster management agency says one hundred sixty five people were injured and dozens of buildings would damage it suspected the tsunami may have been triggered by sub sea landslides following a local volcanic eruption. plenty more still to come including more on the streets of ramallah where people are angry with the ineptitude of their politicians and the brutality of the israeli occupation also ahead a state of emergency and more school closures in sudan where anger is growing up rising food prices.
