President Donald Trump has walked out of a meeting with Democratic leaders as negotiations broke down on the 19th day of a partial US government shutdown. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer stuck by their refusal to fund his US-Mexico border wall, prompting Trump to call the meeting “a total waste of time”. Democrats again accused the president of throwing a “temper tantrum”. The first payday since the shutdown began is due on Friday for 800,000 federal workers, who will go unpaid.
In other news,
Dozens of seals have become stranded in a Canadian town, blocking traffic and the entrances to homes and businesses. Two of the animals in Roddickton-Bide Arm, Newfoundland, died after being struck by a car. There are concerns others will starve to death. It is against Canadian law to interfere with marine mammals such as seals. The creatures became stranded after nearby waters suddenly froze over last week, preventing their return to the ocean.
