Critical week ahead for Trump as he nears 100-day milestone

With a deadline looming this week to avert a US government shutdown, Congress returns to work on Monday as President Donald Trump leans on Democrats to include funding for his promised border wall with Mexico in spending legislation. -Mexican border to thwart illegal immigration, with funding for the controversial barrier at the forefront of White House discussions with lawmakers to avert a partial government shutdown at the end of the week.

Success is much on the mind of Priebus and his boss as this Saturday marks Trump's 100th day in office.

"Obamacare is in serious trouble". They said that Trump has repeatedly broken his campaign promises to help working-class Americans, and cited a GOP health care bill that Pelosi called "a moral monstrosity", proposed cuts in domestic programs and a failure to advance tougher trade policies. "The Democrats don't want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members", the president tweeted Sunday.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Sunday that he believes President Donald Trump "will be insistent" that lawmakers include money for a US-Mexico border wall in a spending bill that they need to pass by Friday to avoid a government shutdown.

"But Democrats want the narrative that they dealt him a loss on the wall", the aide said, adding it would be hard to bring any Democrats on board with new construction on the southwest border.

Feeling pressure to deliver results, Trump wants to revive a troubled health care measure from House Republicans to repeal and replace President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.

The government will not shut down, officials said.

"The only fly in the ointment is that the president is being a little heavy handed, and mixing in and asking for things such as the wall", Schumer said.

"We'd ask him to let us do our work, not throw in some last-minute poison pills that could undo it, and we could get this done", he said.

Palace have won six out of their last seven top-flight fixtures to pull clear of the bottom three. One long ball, one cross and Benteke alone in the box - there is no excuse.

On Friday night, the funding measure lawmakers approved past year to keep the federal government running will expire.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus defended Trump's early weeks on Sunday, noting that in several respects he is on par with his predecessors. Mulvaney said talks between Republicans and Democrats could produce an agreement as early as Sunday.

"I think we've made it very clear that we want border wall funding and we want greater latitude to deny federal grants to sanctuary cities, we want hiring of immigration agents and we want $30 billion to infuse the military budget".

"I hope the President will back off", said Senator Dick Durbin, the number-two Democrat in the Senate, on CNN's "State of the Union". Trump has announced a rally in Pennsylvania that day.

Trump told The Associated Press his plan will cut taxes for both individuals and businesses, but it's expected to be more of a broad outline than a specific plan.

President Donald Trump is calling for "big reforms" to the United Nations and criticizing its handling of recent events in Syria and North Korea.

Democrats called Mulvaney's Obamacare offer a non-starter, saying they refuse to include any funds for a wall in the spending bill that would finance the government through September, the end of the fiscal year. But, Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi told NBC the Democrats will not vote to fund the wall.

Kelly said he spoke with local and state lawmakers willing to share their views on the best way to build the wall.
