President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his latest bid for border wall funding and blamed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a partial government shutdown that is now on its 31st day as a bipartisan group of governors warned that some states are close to running out of money to help the poorest Americans.

But Trump did not budge on his $5.7 billion demand for the wall and, in essence, offered to temporarily roll-back some of his own hawkish immigration actions - actions that have been blocked by federal courts.

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives to deliver remarks on border security and the partial shutdown of the U.S. government in the Diplomatic Room at the White House in Washington, U.S., January 19, 2019.

The proposal would also extend temporary protections for some young people brought to the USA illegally as children and immigrants who fled disaster zones. He also accused the California lawmaker, without evidence, of having "behaved so irrationally" and moving "so far to the left that she has now officially become a Radical Democrat".

Some conservatives aren't happy with Trump's proposal either, likening it to "amnesty". The offer would also give a three-year extension to 300,000 people from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan who are living in the USA under the temporary protected status program.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday", Vice President Mike Pence reiterated that Trump's proposal "is not amnesty" because "there's no pathway to citizenship".

But the proposal, appeared dead on arrival at the Capitol, reports The New York Times.

The President noted that he had adopted some Democratic proposals on border security.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer echoed her stance shortly after Trump laid out the details of his plan to reopen the government, now nearly a month in shutdown.

After Moore invited Trump to North Carolina, however, that state's Democratic Party criticized the gesture, calling it an attempt to distract voters from news that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had questioned a Republican state legislator about an anonymous letter claiming Moore had pushed legislation favorable to one of his legal clients, the News & Observer of Raleigh reported.

Both Trump and Pence sought to reassure their supporters that their offer to Democrats, who have already rejected the proposal, did not amount to amnesty. "I intend to move to this legislation this week". He said Phillips approached him, and "I believed that by remaining motionless and calm, I was helping to diffuse the situation". "Can we make changes?'" Lankford said.

Trump rejects Republican Senator Lindsey Graham's proposal to reopen the government without wall funding and allow for wall funding talks to continue.

That was high on Speaker Nancy Pelosi's list of reasons to call the plan "unacceptable".

Pence argued on Saturday that the speech was a "sincere effort" by Trump to break the logjam, and he and other White House officials suggested the measure could attract enough support to succeed from centrist Democrats fed up with the shutdown and willing to side with Republicans.

Congress must consider this proposal with a real sense of urgency. In exchange, he wants $5.7 billion to start building a U.S. -Mexico border wall. Mark Warner, D-Va., said the government must reopen before any work on border security can commence.

Mr Giuliani denied that Mr Trump would have directed his former lawyer to mislead Congress and said that pre-testimony discussions would have been "perfectly normal". Mr Trump has been trying to rescind the programme. Around 800,000 federal workers have been furloughed or working without pay since the shutdown began.

After Trump spoke on Saturday, Shahira Knight, his legislative director, led a conference call with House Republicans while Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen spoke with Senate Republicans.
