SPOTTED: Pelosi Relaxes During Gov't Shutdown at Expensive Hawaii Resort

But this year, with part of the government unfunded because of the Democrats' refusal to negotiate over border security and a "wall" or "fence" or whatever they want to call it, according to President Trump, House Speaker candidate Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, is living high in Hawaii.

"We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with", the president tweeted.

Trump is now demanding $5 billion in funding for his proposed wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, but Democrats are only willing to give up to $1.6 billion for border security.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is spending the holidays vacationing in Hawaii, as a partial government shutdown grinds on with no resolution in sight.

The shutdown is forcing hundreds of thousands of federal workers and contractors to stay home or work without pay.

And it is Congress, not the president, which appropriates aid money.

The president, who had already scrapped a Christmas visit to his Florida golf resort has also "cancelled his plans for New Year's", his incoming chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, said on Fox News.

Sons of Anarchy star, Danny Trejo, finds President Trump's border wall plan to be a waste of money. Democrats vowed to pass legislation restoring the government as soon as they take control of the House on Thursday, but that won't accomplish anything unless Trump and the Republican-controlled Senate go along with it. "With the House Majority, Democrats will act swiftly to end the Trump Shutdown, and will fight for a strategic, robust national security policy, including strong and smart border security, and strong support for our servicemembers and veterans".

"The White House did tell us very early on to consider presidential tweets official statements, which means even when they're not fully cogent or cooked".

As he did Thursday, Trump remained out of public view on Friday.

With the border shut, Trump said he would take US-Mexican relations back to the days before the NAFTA agreement opened free trade across Canada, Mexico and the United States. Trump previously refused to sign any bill that does not include $5 billion for border security, including for his long-promised wall. "We will always protect migrants, defend their human rights", he said.

This is not the first time Trump has threatened to close the border.

As a result, he said, "we will be cutting off all aid" to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, impoverished, often risky countries where American assistance aims to boost democracy, human rights, education and security.
