>> On Sunday the President lashed out at Democrats less than a day after he tried to coax them toward accepting a deal that would end a partial government shutdown.>> That is our plan border security, DACA, TPS and many other things.>> On Saturday Trump offered what he called a plan to break the deadlock.
00:00:17
He would lift the threat of deportation for certain undocumented immigrants if Democrats agreed to his unwavering demand for $5.7 billion for a wall on the US-Mexico border but he was careful not to call it a wall.>> This is not a 2000-mile concrete structure from sea to sea, these are steel barriers in high priority locations.
00:00:41
>> Democrats quickly panned the deal, House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, called it quote, a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives. Democrats maintain that a physical barrier is expensive and ineffective and that Trump promised Mexico would pay for it. And they insist Trump reopen government before they negotiate over government spending.
00:01:01
Democrats and Republicans agreed on a funding bill last month but Trump refused to sign it without money for a wall.>> I am proud to shut down the government for border security Chuck.>> While he may have felt his Saturday night offer projected reconciliation.>> Fair, reasonable and common sense, with lots of compromise.
00:01:20
>> By Sunday, Trump had changed from conciliatory to adversarial. On Twitter he attacked House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, as a radical Democrat saying she'd lost control and telling her to clean up the streets in San Francisco, they are disgusting. Trump also faced a backlash from some anti-immigrant supporters who called his offer amnesty.
00:01:39
To them, Trump appeared to respond, no, amnesty is not part of my offer. Trump says a wall is needed to end what he calls a national security and humanitarian crisis at the border. Government data show illegal border crossings are near record lows.>> Meanwhile, the shutdown is a growing crisis for many American families.
00:01:57
Over the weekend, food pantries opened their doors to federal government works furloughed by the shutdown or forced to work without pay.>> When they come in they're so profoundly grateful because most of these folks have been steadily employed and really never had to ask for help before.>> These include National Weather Service workers in Oklahoma-
00:02:13
>> We're gonna keep providing these distributions throughout the furlough->> NASA employees in San Francisco and TSA workers nationwide. Sunday marks the two-year anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration>> From this day forward a new vision will govern our land.>> And the 30th day of the partial shutdown, the longest in the nation's history.
