"The partial shutdown of the United States federal government entered has entered the third week with 'not much headway" in talks, President Donald Trump noted in a post on social media at the end of negotiations led on behalf of the administration by Vice President Mike Pence on Saturday.

President Donald Trump acknowledged Sunday that weekend shutdown talks led by his vice president would not break an impasse, as newly empowered House Democrats planned to step up the pressure on Trump and Republican lawmakers to reopen the government.

The president had previously admitted to considering using his emergency powers to build a border wall without congressional approval during a press briefing Friday. Democrats sought written details from the Department of Homeland Security on their budget needs; the White House said it would provide that. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called the wall "immoral". The proposed wall is reportedly going to be made from steel, which Trump told reporters would be "less obtrusive" and "stronger".

Vice President Mike Pence had planned to meet with congressional leadership staff on January 6, but Trump said any developments related to his $5.6 billion funding request for the wall were likely to happen in the coming days.

Hours after Tlaib was sworn in as part of the history-making class of freshmen that helped flip the House to Democratic control, she ran afoul of the widespread sense among her colleagues that they should focus for now on health care and other policies rather than impeachment - at least until special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation concludes.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer did not show his hand when asked whether the White House offer to take a concrete wall off the table was evidence of compromise.

"I may decide a national emergency depending on what happens over the next few days", Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for Camp David, a presidential retreat in the state of Maryland, for meetings with senior White House staff on border security and other issues. "GOP lost entitlement to policing women's behavior a long time ago".

Trump said that Tlaib's comments were "disgraceful", before adding that she "dishonored herself" and "dishonored her family".

He later tweeted that the Pence talks were productive.

Speaking with reporters outside of the White House, Trump said, "We'll obviously be discussing the wall, which is desperately needed". Two Democratic officials familiar with the session say Democrats pleaded with Pence and other officials to re-open government while talks continue. "Good solution, and made in the U.S.A".

Experts say that the federal government has already cost the country billions of dollars.

It is unclear whether there is any truth to the president's statement about government workers.

White House officials and congressional aides will meet again Sunday to continue discussions about how to end the partial government shutdown that has affected hundreds of thousands of federal workers and caused delays and inconvenience for Americans.

"I am sure that the people that are on the receiving end will make adjustment, they always do", Trump said.

"I never threaten anybody but I am allowed to do that, yes", Trump said.
