JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon told reporters Tuesday that he expects US economic growth to slow to nothing this quarter if the government shutdown continues.

A group of Republican lawmakers who met with President Donald Trump says it's time for Democrats to come the negotiating table to end the partial government shutdown now in its fourth week.

US President Donald Trump speaks alongside fast food he purchased for a ceremony honouring the 2018 College Football Playoff National Champion Clemson Tigers in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, DC, January 14, 2019.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said she was working with the White House and Congress to pass legislation to fund the Coast Guard.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and congressional Democrats for their unwillingness to negotiate with President Donald Trump as there now seems to be no give-and-take on his proposed border wall.

The president called the spread "great American food".

Roughly a million government employees and contractors aren't being paid. If the shutdown lasts another week, government workers will miss their second paycheck this month. The chef and wife of Stephen Curry has two barbecue restaurants.

"When it comes to keeping the American people safe, I will never, ever back down", he said. Steph Curry said he didn't want to go and then Trump withdrew an invitation in an early-morning tweet on September 23, 2017.

"Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress", Pelosi wrote.

It's a pairing we've seen a lot of before - Trump and fast food - and much has been written about the president's diet which according to his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, consists largely of fast food and diet coke. It is obvious that Quavo knows more about hospitality than Trump.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll released Tuesday indicated 51 percent of respondents blame Trump and 34 percent blame congressional Democrats. He values its efficiency and consistency, and as a self-professed "germaphobe", he has said uniform health standards make him more confident in its cleanliness.

"It was awesome", Lawrence told TMZ while taking pictures with Clemson fans.

Earlier in the day, Mr Trump told farmers at a convention in New Orleans that he would continue to fight for his promised border wall.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky. speaks to reporters as he walks into his office for a meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill in Washington, Jan. 10, 2019.
