Hoyer commented after Pelosi sent the president a letter, urging him to postpone the speech or simply deliver a letter to Congress.

Kevin Hassett, the chairman of Trump's Council of Economic Advisers, said Tuesday the country's robust economy has already lost a half percentage point from the shutdown, during which 800,000 government workers have been furloughed or forced to work without pay. The new estimates now show that the shutdown will cut quarterly economic growth by 0.13 percent each week that it continues.

Talks between President Trump and Democratic congressional leaders broke down a week ago when Trump walked out of a meeting with top Democrats after Pelosi told the president she would not be willing to cede to the president's demand for wall funding if the government reopened.

President Donald Trump speaks in front of fast food provided for the 2018 College Football Playoff National Champion Clemson Tigers due to the partial government shutdown in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, on January 14, 2019.

The charity World Central Kitchen, which is known for its work feeding people in disaster zones such as Puerto Rico after a hurricane devastated the US territory in 2017, is opening a popup stand Wednesday in Washington to feed federal employees. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the meeting was constructive.

Lobster, whatever you want, we're gonna take care of you. I want to see what's here when we leave, because I don't think it's going to be much, ' he said.

President Trump's "hamberder" feast for the Clemson Tigers, as it's now being called, left many unimpressed - to put it gently.
