House Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued that President Donald Trump’s border wall is not a high-tech enough solution to border security and Democrats would prefer to spend money on something that is more effective than a campaign slogan. Trump admitted he walked out of a Wednesday meeting, unwilling to negotiate.
According to Pelosi, Trump told the room that federal workers can ask their parents for money.
“It is so sad that in a matter of hours, just a few days, many people, federal workers, will not be receiving their paychecks,” Pelosi told the press in front of the White House. “And what that means in their lives is tragic in terms of their credit rating, paying their mortgage, paying their rent, paying their car payment, paying the children’s tuition and the rest. The president seems to be insensitive to that. He thinks maybe they can ask their father for more money. But they can’t.”
The Washington Post echoed Pelosi’s statement, saying Coast Guard families were told they should have garage sales to cope with the government shutdown.
The idea came from a five-page tip sheet of ideas published by the service.

Instagram chief insists it doesn’t spy on users
Instagram doesn't snoop on private conversations as part of its advertising targeting strategy, the head of the popular social media site said in an interview Tuesday.
"We don't look at your messages, we don't listen in on your microphone; doing so would be super problematic for a lot of different reasons," Instagram chief Adam Mosseri said in an interview with CBS.
"But I recognize you're not going to really believe me."
During the interview, Mosseri acknowledged that he is grilled regularly by Instagram users who insist they receive ads from restaurants, stores and other companies after only conducting a private conversation about an item and not posting to the broader site.
Conservative attorney reveals Duncan Hunter’s ‘colossal stupidity’ with devastating timeline of his actions
Conservative attorney Gabriel Malor, who in the past has written legal analyses for right-wing publications such as The Federalist and the Washington Examiner, found himself in awe at the latest Department of Justice filings leveled against indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA).
In court filings made on Tuesday, the DOJ alleged that Hunter illegally used money donated to his congressional campaign to “carry out a series of intimate relationships” with women who were all involved in politics, including three registered lobbyists and one of his own staff members.
