Once Government funding bill reaches WH, says Sanders, it has to undergo OMB and legal review. Says could reach @POTUS desk for signature this evening, and the federal government could return to full capacity operations tomorrow.
"What the president did, clearly worked" replies PressSec to @POTUS approach over the weekend to government shutdown.
"What the president did clearly worked." — Sarah Huckabee Sanders, on his posture during the shutdown
"We're hopeful that we don't have to (deport the 'Dreamers)," replies @PressSec.
"He thinks he's doing a great job," replies @PressSec to question on @POTUS stance on performance of @SecretaryRoss at @CommerceGov.
OMB and legal reviews need on CR to end governmentshutdown "before it hits the president's desk." [email protected]
A group of GOP senators - including Sens. Perdue and Cotton - are currently meeting at the WH to pitch a new DACA bill, per aides and lawmakers.
Big priority for @POTUS was making sure governmentshutdown "was well managed," says @PressSec. "It worked because we're back where we basically started."
If all goes as planned to end shutdown, says @PressSec, Pres Trump will embark on his planned trip Wednesday to the @wef in Davos.
"We certainly want to go negotiate," with Democrats on ImmigrationReform, says @PressSec.
Sarah Sanders begins the briefing by urging Turkey to show 'restraint' in northern Syria operation. Calls on Pakistan to expel Taliban
"I am pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses," says statement by @POTUS read by @PressSec. "We will make a deal on immigration if, and only if, it's good for our country."
Two prominent Republicans in frequent contact with the White House told Vanity Fair that Trump has discussed choosing Kelly's successor in recent days. Ivanka is reportedly playing a central role in the search, quietly field-testing ideas with people.
Pence, speaking alongside Netanyahu: "The Schumer shutdown failed."
In Jerusalem, @VP welcomes deal back home to end Government shutdown. Declares "the Schumer shutdown failed," Credits the "firm stand" of the president and GOP. Says Congress can return to enacting more of the president's agenda.
Elizabeth Warren:It's been over 100 days since protection for 800k Dreamers ended, since community health centers were funded, since hurricanes ravaged TX, FL and PR. The Republicans refused to fix any of these issues– and they still haven't fixed them. We don't need new promises. We need new laws.
Senator Ed Markey: "A budgetary vision without funding is a hallucination. The futures and families of DREAMers will not be assured by a promise from Republican leadership."
Sen Markey on his no vote: "I remain deeply skeptical of any short-term budget agreement that relies on the good faith commitment of President Donald Trump."
Briefing by @PressSec at the @WhiteHouse has been been pushed back 30 minutes to 14:00 EST.
White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah on immigration negotiations: "The Graham-Durbin proposal is not a proposal the President can sign"
@SenGillibrand: I am deeply disappointed that today's outcome fails to protect Dreamers. They deserve better from the elected leaders of the only country many of them have ever called home.
White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah on negotiations to end the shutdown: "The President was certainly involved, he was engaged in the process talking to the Republican leaders"

Collins hails the bipartisan negotiations to reopen the government: "I give our leaders a lot of credit for listening to the ideas that we put forward and for showing some flexibility"
"Every meeting that we were inwas always an optimistic meeting. We always knew there was a pathway forward, and it was a reasonable pathway forward," @Sen JoeManchin says on deal to reopen government after 3-day shutdown
Republican Sen. Susan Collins: "Today is a day to celebrate because we have shown that a determined group of senators working together across the aisle can result in positive action"
Sen. Kamala Harris on agreement reached with McConnell on future DACA legislation: "I refuse to put the lives of nearly 700,000 young people in the hands of someone who has repeatedly gone back on his word."

Senate votes to end shutdown
Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin: "The question is how we move forward. What I have seen here on the floor of the Senate in the last few days is something I have not seen for years: constructive, bipartisan conversations and dialogue"
Chuck Schumer: The GOP Majority has 17 days to prevent Dreamers from being deported. In every possible way, urge your Senators to vote yes on our bipartisan compromise to ProtectDreamers when it comes to the floor.
"So many of you cast a vote that was very hard and very difficult because you believed as I did, that the issue of immigration and the issue of Dreamers is the civil rights issue of our time," @SenatorDurbin says to his Democratic colleagues ahead of vote on spending bill
Chuck Schumer: I expect @SenateMajLdr to fulfill his commitment to the Senate and abide by this agreement. If he does not honor our agreement, he will have breached the trust of not only the Democratic Senators but the members of his own party as well.
1230pm: Senate voting to end filibuster on bill to fund the Government and end shutdown. Vote on 3-week funding bill itself will follow.
Sen. Durbin: "To all the Dreamers who are watching today: Don't give up. I know that your lives on hanging in the balance."
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: "We have a chance to get back to work"
"Now comes the test, the real test," says @SenatorDurbin. "We have to stand together."
Schumer with a parting shot at Trump: "The great deal-making president sat on the sidelines."
Schumer: "The Trump shutdown will soon end"
Sen. Chuck Schumer: "The White House refused to engage in negotiations over the weekend. The great dealmaking president sat on the sidelines."
Chuck Schumer says that he hasn't spoken to Trump since Friday and that the White House refused to engage in negotiations over the weekend: "The great deal-making president sat on the sidelines."
"We have a way to address the fate of the Dreamers, starting right instead of waiting until March." Schumer
Chuck Schumer: I am confident that there are sixty votes in the Senate for a DACA deal. And there is a real pathway to get a bill on the floor and through the Senate. It is a good solution and I will vote for it.
"In a few hours the Government will be open," says Schumer.
[email protected]: "The Republican party controls the House, the Senate, the presidency and yet they were unable to keep the government open for the American people."
[email protected]: "Presidents Trump's unwillingness to compromise caused the Trump shutdown."
On Senate floor, @SenSchumer announces "we will vote today to reopen the Government."
Chuck Schumer: We will vote today to reopen the government, to continue negotiating a global agreement, with the commitment that, if an agreement is not reached by Feb 8th, the Senate will immediately proceed to consideration of legislation dealing with DACA. The process will be neutral and fair.
"The Republican leaders told me to work out a deal with the White house, the White House said work it out with Republican leaders on the hill. Separately, @POTUS turned away from not one, but two bipartisan compromises. Each would've averted this shutdown," @SenSchumers ays
Schumer says Senate "will vote today to re-open the government"
[email protected]: "These days, you never know who to deal with when it comes to the Republicans."
"I can't think of anybody who's more explicit on their position on immigration. It has simply never changed for President Trump" @KellyannePolls
[email protected]: "we got a path clear on how we're going to get a full year budget and we got a path clear on how we're going to start the immigration debate. I think that's significant. That's not what we had before.
Rep. @NancyPelosi: "Every year the Republicans plan 'the Davos break' Why is the House out? So that some of the Republican leadership can go visit their top one percent friends in Davos and celebrate the passage of a very unfair tax bill."
"A shutdown is very serious. When the president said a 'good shutdown' - oxymoron. There is no such thing as a 'good shutdown'. On the first anniversary of his inauguration, he got what he wanted: A shutdown, a Trump shutdown," Rep. @NancyPelosi says
"When I think of the main obstacle it is this: There is a dark cloud hanging over the capitol, and that dark cloud is the Trump tax scam," Rep. @NancyPelosi says ahead of vote on short-term funding plan

[email protected]: Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.'s!
