Trump Says He Has 'Alternatives' to Fund Border Wall

President Donald Trump held a press conference after the Senate voted down his proposal to reopen the government Thursday.

President Trump told reporters he has "alternatives" to fund his border wall.

A separate bill aimed at ending the shutdown also failed Thursday, and a bipartisan group of senators is now looking into other ways to reopen the government, even if only for a few weeks.

But President Trump told reporters he would only support a resolution to temporarily reopen the government if it includes a "large down payment" for a border wall.

"One of the ideas suggested is they open it, they pay some sort of prorated down payment for the wall, which I think people would agree that you need."  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the president's proposal was "not reasonable" and that the shutdown "is a crisis that the president alone created." "The Republicans in the Congress have been accomplices to the president's irresponsibility and just ignoring the consequences of his action," Pelosi said.

"Either he doesn't know or he doesn't care.

But nonetheless, the Trump shutdown goes on." The government shutdown had been going on for 34 days Thursday.

On Friday, furloughed federal workers are expected to miss their second straight paycheck.
