The partial shutdown of the U.S. government has moved no closer to a resolution, with President Donald Trump asserting on Tuesday the shutdown will continue until his demand for funds to construct a U.S. -Mexico border wall are met. He spoke Tuesday by video conference to members of all five branches of the USA military.

Since Saturday, several Cabinet departments and agencies have been closed after their funding lapsed, and hundreds of thousands of government workers across the United States were affected.

President Donald Trump makes a video call to service members from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard stationed worldwide, in the Oval Office at the White House, on December 25. TheStreet.com explains it beautifully: In the USA, a shutdown happens when the President and the national legislature, known as the Congress, "don't agree on a plan to continue funding [the government's] operations".

"One would think that securing our homeland, controlling our borders and protecting the American people, would be bipartisan priorities...a core duty of any nation's government", Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said.

He told reporters, "I thought it would be wrong for me to be with my family".
