While the UNITED states has entered the third week of a partial shutdown of the country's public system, heralds president Donald Trump is now both a speech to the nation and a visit to the border between the UNITED states and Mexico.
Trump will Tuesday at 21.00 local time - at 03.00 local time address to the nation on immigration and the ongoing shutdown.
Two days later he will on Thursday visit the border between the UNITED states and Mexico.
Here he will probably emphasise the need for a wall at the mexican border. The wall was Trumps big key issue during the election campaign in 2016.
the Wall has now been the issue in the negotiations on a budget for 2019.
Trump has demanded five billion dollars to the wall to keep illegal immigrants out of the UNITED states.
He has said that he will oppose the budget bill for next year, as long as there is set aside money for a grænsemur.
Facts: The u.s. shutdown
Though Trump in the first place had shown willingness to sign a budget where there was not funding for his grænsemur, ended up he to demand the money for the wall.
The first in the last end to end, the american state apparatus closed down 22. december, since that could not be achieved majority in the Senate.
the Shutdown has implications for the total to 800,000 out of 2.1 million federal employees.
About 400,000 people still need to take care of their jobs, as there is talk about the vital functions of society. However, they will only get paid the salary with retrospective effect, when there is adopted a budget.
The other 400.000, by contrast, has not worked since the state apparatus was shut down, and they don't get any salary at a later date for the missing working days.
so far three people have died in the country's national parks, which is believed to be due, that there is no staff in the parks.
the Closure is the third in 2018. The first took place between the 20. and 23. January, while the second took place in the first nine hours of 9. February 2018. The second shutdown, however, had no real significance, since the decommissioning took place in the night, and there was adopted a budget before the work day began.read more Close
Democrats, however, refuses to accept his claim to spend billions of dollars on such a measure.
- We're not going to build a wall. Such a wall has nothing to do with politics. A wall is the lack of morality between the two countries. It is an old fashioned way of thinking. It is not cost effective, said the Democratic chairman of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, last week.
According to The New York Times has the big four us tv stations ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC all received requests from The White House to show the president's speech at 21.00 on Tuesday evening in the UNITED states.
The partial shutdown means that more than 400,000 public employees have been ordered to that meeting on their work without pay
380.000 others have been sent on leave.
The recent negotiations on the budget bill in The White House has not been particularly hopeful that a deal is closer.
Both sides have been stubborn on their stance on the border wall.
