Meanwhile, a Trump ally says the president isn't giving in on his demands for a border wall.
More Americans-54%-still say they oppose a border wall. "What we're not looking to do right now is national emergency". The White House scuttled efforts to reach a deal on Capitol Hill on Thursday, and Trump's budget team is drawing up contingency plans for a shutdown that extends through the end of February, according to an administration official. "Whatever you want to call it, it's OK with me. Because this is something Congress should do".
With the exception of certain local employees overseas, the rest are working without pay, such as those tasked with supporting Mr Pompeo's trip, which has thus far taken him to Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and Bahrain. "You know, there's not much talk about what she said". Lawmakers adjourned for the weekend but will return to Washington on Monday.
It's day 22 of the federal government shutdown -- now the longest in US history - and the situation continues to be at a stalemate.
Trump has tried various angles to pressure Democratic negotiators, but they have not visibly budged from an offer to support some border security spending - the figure of US$1.3 billion (RM5.33 billion) has been floated - but not the US$5.7 billion he wants for a wall.
On Friday, however, Trump backed off a series of previous threats to end the deadlock by declaring a national emergency and attempting to secure the funds without congressional approval. That, in turn, could prompt him to sign bills that restore funding to agencies that have been affected by the shutdown.
"He has done everything he can to harm California", Garamendi toldReuters in a telephone interview.
"This is where I ask the Democrats to come back to Washington and vote for money for the wall, the barrier", Trump said on Friday.

The record shutdown has furloughed 800,000 federal employees and cut government services across the U.S., caused by a lack of agreement between Republicans and Democrats over their funding. Some have resorted to selling their possessions or posting appeals on online fundraising sites to help pay their bills.
Trump mocked them for "having fun" while he remains in snowy Washington. "It must be leading to all kinds of uncertainty, stress and anxiety, and frankly, anger and resentment". "Keep an eye out for warning signs of trouble", Director R.D.
The No. 2 Senate Democrat, Dick Durbin, said yesterday on ABC that "if this president is going to turn to national emergencies every time he disagrees with Congress, I'm against it".
The increase in support is sharpest among Republicans, whose backing for Trump's long-standing campaign promise jumped 16 points in the past year, from 71 percent to 87 percent. "It won't be the Mexican government [paying for the wall], won't be the Mexican people, it'll be the Mexican cartels". "I'm just so frustrated we can't get into a room and hammer it out".
Durbin said the shutdown will end "when the Senate Republicans say, 'We've had enough".
However, they now have no room on their roster to sign foreign players, suggesting they may not be the club in question. Manager Manuel Pellegrini , who worked in China with Hebei China Fortune, said: 'I talk with all of the players, always.
