President Donald Trump was firing Twitter barbs at Democrats this weekend as talks to end a weeklong partial government shutdown remained at a stalemate.
Trump was cooped up in the White House after cancelling a vacation to his private Florida club.
As the disruption in federal services and public employees' pay appeared set to continue into the new year, there were no signs of any substantive negotiation between the blame-trading parties.
Trump held out for billions in federal funds for a border wall between the US and Mexico, which Democrats have said they were intent on blocking.
