It has erupted at a high-stakes moment for the Republican Party, which is facing the prospect of a government shutdown - and the possibility it may fail to enact any major legislation during its first year in complete control of Washington.

This may come as a shock to his more devoted followers.

A local political analyst said he doesn't believe the government will shut down because of the border wall funding.

Congress will have about 12 working days from its return to approve spending measures to keep the government open.

House Speaker Paul Ryan was asked about the debt ceiling during a tour of the Boeing facility in Everett, Washington. Corker was unrelenting, these people said, and told Trump the bill was going to pass both houses with bipartisan support.

Democrats have been talking about using the debt ceiling as a lever against Republican tax reform since June and laid out their conditions for working together on tax legislation in an August 1 letter to Trump and Republican leaders.

McConnell is an unrelenting GOP loyalist who's mastered Senate rules and the legislative process, while Trump regularly bashes Republicans and has limited knowledge of congressional procedure. "He's got very strong support in the Senate", Ruddy said.

It was the latest evidence of a widening split between Trump and Republican lawmakers, which only worsened following what many viewed as his insufficient condemnation of the deadly violence by white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month. "Certainly there are going to be some policy differences, but there are also a lot of shared goals and that's what we're focused on".

Plenty of GOP members would rather put Barack Obama on Mount Rushmore than underwrite this addled project.

"Democrats have no reason to fold", Pitney said.

"If the President pursues this path, against the wishes of both Republicans and Democrats, as well as the majority of the American people, he will be heading towards a government shutdown which nobody will like and which won't accomplish anything", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

Republicans hold a thin two-vote majority in the Senate.

Doubt has seeped out of Trump's Cabinet room. "Build that wall!" The New York Times reports that former chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon privately told Trump that getting the wall funding is an absolute must, because Trump's base will not tolerate another loss after the failure to repeal Obamacare. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has also been equivocal.

Trump won't change. He won't get any more tactful. Those numbers won't intimidate many members of Congress. But it would be worse for Trump. Now he tries to blame the president? But Mexico has declined the opportunity.

He badly needs a legislative victory, and he flat-out said this week he would risk a shutdown to get funding for his hallmark campaign promise, a border wall. "I see them putting these ideas out as though they're making progress, but they are the same regurgitated ideas we've been talking about for 20 years that have never gotten past the white-paper stage". Mexican politicians of all political hues denounced his scheme and said their nation would not pay for it, either. The Koch-backed groups did not openly support Trump's candidacy for president - Charles Koch said previous year that the choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton was like choosing between cancer and a heart attack.
