This was member a three week short-term spending measure just open the government up and give while makers time to negotiate. But now here we are with the clock ticking and the conversation appears to be a stalemate right now, they're at least a stalled from where there is optimism at the end of one week, and the main sticking point now isn't just the border wall and the funding the president wants, but a demand from Democrats about limiting the number of bed. The detention centers around the country as part of the law enforcement efforts on undocumented immigrants. There is still conversation. That'll be taking place day. This is not something that's completely off cable right now. But I think you know, everybody was founding pretty optimistic on Friday, and that was certainly scaled back by yesterday. Definitely some reason for concern. Still also over the weekend. Elizabeth Warren announced her presidential candidacy, which was expected on Saturday. President Trump wants again, mocking her native American heritage claims. Yeah. This is I think the pattern that will be from the president where as Democrats announced their campaigns or toyed with the idea of running and then hit the road aggressively to start campaigning the president's going to be reacting on Twitter. This is his preferred communication, and I think we will continue to see that he was certainly behind closed doors over the weekend didn't have any public events here at the White House, but paying attention, of course, even klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts announcing and wing it on Twitter, speaking of behind closed doors, he's taking some heat for his schedule or maybe lack of same sixty percent of his days engaged to what is called executive time. And this is the president he jumped on this over the weekend because it was a story that came out last weekend. But perhaps he was watching something that was talking about these pieces, and he was upset about it. But the president was saying that they should have been been presented as the positive that he's focusing. He's not relaxing. He's having meetings. He's having conversations critics certainly jumped on the schedules that were published by axios last week that shows how much time the president is spending on what the White House calls executive time tweets, you can trace back and shows that he's watching television because he's tweeting about it. He's aiding people what they're saying on cable news and maiming them and naming the network. So this isn't just speculation about the what the president is doing given time. He's making it pretty clear through social media feed today at the president had alpaca Texas today for his first campaign style rally of twenty nineteen look for him to be talking about border security in the wall in this town, that's on the US Mexico border.

"Correspondent Karen Travers. President Trump's spent his thanksgiving week pardoning turkeys thanking troops and airing political grievances chief Justice of the United States even got an ear full. Karen? Yeah. This is something the president is not happy that a federal district judge in California this week Erin blocked his plan temporarily to crack down on the Silom seekers. So what the president did earlier this month was issue? A proclamation saying if you wanna see political asylum you have. To do it at an official port of entry right now under US law. You get into the country, you can seek asylum, and the there were immediately legal challenges, the ACLU and other groups said, the president can't do this through a proclamation. This is settled US law. So a judge in California. Agreed and that has set the president off this week, and he is very upset with the ninth circuit. He's called it a disgrace, a complete and total disaster. He says these decisions out there by liberal leaning court are making the country unsafe. We saw a very striking surprising unprecedented response. Aaron from the chief Justice John Roberts who issued a statement saying that there are no Obama. Judges is the president likes to say there are no Bush judges. There are no Clinton judges. There are just judges Aaron each be surprised that the president had to have the last word. And then another last word another last word and kept talking about this after Roberts put out that statement. He says that Roberts can say what? He wants. But the ninth circuit is a problem for him. But he did later say that he has respect for the chief Justice. Karen, the president also weighed in once again on the murder of Jamal has Shoghi widely blamed on the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, but President Trump said it's in his America first policy to maintain a good relationship with the Saudis, and he seems to be at odds with his own intelligence authorities and yet he's trying to say he's not at odds with them because the intelligence community has not reached a final conclusion. The administration is trying to say that the US government hasn't reached its conclusion. But we are told that the CIA has had a report and one senior official says it it makes it clear that it's blindingly obvious. That's the phrase this official used blindingly obvious that the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman, ordered the killing of Jamaica Shoghi, the president this week on several occasions. Aaron has said, maybe he did maybe he didn't. But. He's making it quite clear that even if this is something handed to him in black and white as a memo he does not want to jeopardize the US Saudi relationship. He says it's too important economically too important for the global financial system that oil prices, stay low. I think he is certainly teeing up another example here where even if there is a solid conclusion, which she says, we might never have we seen the president in the past not take the word of the intelligence community, of course, on Russian election meddling where he continues to cast doubts on those assessments the president and his family spent the holiday at his golf resort in Florida and the president thanked American troops. Karen, he said the country should also be grateful for him. This is like Trumpian answer as we like to call it.

"News correspondent, Karen Travers. Carry good morning. What was the president's reaction to the president said that bright Kavanagh's? Testimony was power. Awful honest, and riveting he watched almost every second of it. I in Air Force One on the short flight from New York to Washington and then later at the White House all afternoon, either cleared schedule, so he could pay attention to what was happening on Capitol Hill. And there it was also last night the president was late to go to a fundraiser here in town. He stayed delayed his departure, so he could watch the end of the hearing. And then seconds after the hearing ended he tweeted that very strong show of support for Brad Kavanagh. Ultimately, it comes down to whether this changed any minds yesterday. What's what's expected during the vote this morning? It certainly didn't sound like any of the mines that had been publicly declared had been changed. If Republicans had already said they were going for Cavanaugh. They still are Democrats who were not supporting him are still not. It's those undecideds the ones who have not said what they're going to do that are as always still in the spotlight Jeff flake, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Joe Manchin, and Joe Donnelly names that we are always talking about. So today, it's a procedural vote. In the Senate Judiciary committee is just a move. It out of committee says not the final vote that won't take place for several days. This is is there a plan b if indeed the cavenaugh nomination long as the odds are goes down, the White House says no plan B, they're firmly behind Cavanaugh, and they feel good about where things stand right now. That said there are still a lot of votes to be had. And then there are still, you know, they have to convince a couple more Republicans assuming they don't get any democrat votes, which they still could. But this is going to be tight could be very much down to the wire, this grip the entire nation. What was it like in DC yesterday? We've goes townie. Yeah. I mean, I it's all anybody was doing. I mean, we were joking that like if you have a Fitbit or step tracker nobody hit their steps yesterday because nobody got up. Everybody was just watching this hearing and waiting to see how this played out. I was here at the White House very late last night. And I went home when there's a time where they're normally be no traffic downtown. And it was just bumper to bumper. It was raining, but you also. Have the sense that people stuck around till seven o'clock to watch the hearing just like the president did and then decided to head home. I mean, it was really the only thing happening in town yesterday. Well, the other thing that was supposed to happen was the meeting between President Trump and his deputy attorney general what's happening with that. Now, it'll be next week they postponed it because of the hearing yesterday. I you know, I wouldn't be surprised if the meeting maybe doesn't even happen. The president certainly on Wednesday was signaling that his preference right now would be to keep rod Rosenstein in that position that you know, kind of bubbling over issue seems to have slowed down a little bit. But we'll see what happens in the next few days. Thanks, Karen have a good weekend. ABC's Karen Travers with from the White House talking about the cavenaugh nomination.

"ABC's? Karen Travers at joins us from the nation's capital. Good morning. Karen, good morning. His Rosenstein going to have a job after Thursday. We'll see I don't think anybody seems to know what's going to happen. And it's unclear if the president knows how this is all going to go down. And if he does he certainly not signaling any of his intentions in public, whether he'll fire Rosenstein or force him to resign. He says he wants to have a conversation with him and determine what's going on that will take place here at the White House on Thursday. Notably though, the press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked today if president has confidence in Rosenstein, she says he has confidence in the process as she didn't explain what that meant. But that was a notable what she wasn't saying right around this time yesterday morning. There was all kinds of news swirling that Rosenstein was on his way to the White House. He was expecting to be fired or maybe he was going to quit what exactly happened yesterday. We're still trying to figure it all out. He was summoned to the White House. We are also Kelly here because the president, of course, is in New York for the UN and sources tell us that Rosenstein came here expecting to be fired and over the weekend. He had even offered to resign. But the White House in Rosenstein, couldn't come to agreement on some of the specifics of how that would play out. So he comes yesterday expecting to get fired. He doesn't he's sent off with a warm handshake smile from the chief of staff right in front of cameras at the White House. I mean, I could have been done inside that could have been done in a hallway or the office. It was notable that was done in full view of the White House press and the Rosenstein goes back to the Justice department, and he still has a job at least for now. What happens if Rosenstein were to leave then the number three at the Justice department would oversee the Russia probe they'll solicitor general no Francisco until there's a permanent replacement at that deputy attorney general position everything, of course has. Political consequences. Is there any sense or fear at the White House that getting rid of Rosenstein might produce some kind of political backlash in this country? I think definitely there they're well aware of that. They're hearing it from outside allies. They're hearing it from pundits. The president is hearing it from all of the people. He likes to watch on television who are saying that if you do this this could spark quite a political crisis and one that you don't need ahead of the midterm elections. President's critics say if he does this it would be crossing a significant line so notable that you kind of have some bipartisan agreement to not do it. But just for very different reasons, you mentioned, Sarah Sanders. Do we expect to see her in the briefing room, many time in the near future not this week because the president's up at the UN and she's up there with him? All right. Karen, thanks for checking in with us. ABC news. Correspondent Karen Travers with again this morning from the White House defense.
