No movement in settling record-long shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — The partial government shutdown has slipped into the record books as the longest ever.

Members of Congress are out of town, no negotiations are scheduled and President Donald Trump is tweeting into the void.

He’s not tipping his hand about whether he’ll move ahead with an emergency declaration that could break the impasse and free up money for his wall without congressional approval.

Such a move would kick off legal challenges and a political storm.

A day earlier, he said he was not ready to do it “right now.”

Lawmakers are due back in Washington from their states and congressional districts in the new week.
