Trump threatens to shut down Govt, if necessary

At a raucous political rally in Phoenix on August 22, U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to shut down the federal government if Congress refuses to send him a spending bill that funds the U.S. -Mexico border wall on which he staked his presidential campaign, Bloomberg News reports.

McConnnell, who earlier this month reportedly engaged in a contentious feud with Trump, has said he will nevertheless continue to work with the president to advance the GOP legislative agenda.

Failure to make progress on the border wall - or at least go to the mat on the issue - may fracture what has been a solid political base for the president, added a Republican consultant who closely follows that group of voters.

Fellow Republicans have been quick to dismiss the idea of a USA government shutdown, after Donald Trump's threats to do just that over funding for his border wall with Mexico.

Critics want Trump to overrule Zinke's proposal
To date, though, Zinke has only suggested changes to one of the monuments under review. But the fate of five other California monuments is still up in the air.

Cohn on debt ceiling, tax plan: Gary Cohn, the head of President Trump's National Economic Council, says Congress "has to increase the debt ceiling" and that the USA "cannot be put in a position where we default", in comments to the Financial Times published a day after Trump called the debt ceiling issue "a mess". In the end, you can only pass bills on the floor, not on Twitter.

"If the President pursues this path, against the wishes of both Republicans and Democrats, as well as the majority of the American people, he will be heading towards a government shutdown which nobody will like and which won't accomplish anything", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in a statement.

Trump promised to build his signature wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, calling it "absolutely necessary". In Trump's view, it makes him look like a strong leader who is willing to stand up against a weak Congress.

Donald Trump has been president for about seven months.

Vitamin B linked to increased lung cancer risk
These supplements have been broadly thought to reduce cancer risk. "This is certainly a concern worthy of further evaluation". Male smokers taking B12 at such doses were approximately four times more likely to develop the disease compared to non-users.

Trump's constant fights with Republicans have led some analysts to suggest that he be viewed primarily as an independent actor, altogether separate from the party.

If McConnell passes a budget that does not include the funding, perhaps with some minor tax cuts (to placate some Republicans), but keeping some funding increases (to get some Democrats on board), he can present a bipartisan spending bill to the president.

But outside of Trump rallies, polls show significant majorities of Americans oppose spending money on a border wall. "This doesn't mean joining Democrats as 'the Resistance.' But it does mean acting on their own to fulfill their legislative promises with or without the support of Mr. Trump". In Democratic administrations, many Republicans have demanded spending cuts as the price of avoiding a government default.

As a result of the 2013 shutdown over Obamacare that was blamed on Sen. Trump has already endorsed Ward, a former state senator and failed 2016 primary challenger of McCain, in the race.

Apple to test self-driving systems on employee shuttles
However, there were disagreements on whether CarOS should be programmed using Apple's programming language Swift or with C++. What we didn't know were many specifics about what Apple thought it could do if it did build a vehicle .

Gambling on a shutdown over the wall is an easy choice for Trump.
