One great thing about the military having such a large budget is that President Trump can use money from them to use to build his wall.
If he wants to be reelected in 2020, he must either have the wall built or a damn good start after getting suckered by Democrat Paul Ryan kept promising money for the wall “next time.” Until they ran out of next times, that is. The Democrats say they are willing to give Trump 1.6 billion dollars, but not to spend on a wall. Without a wall, 1.6 billion won’t do a lot of good.
President Trump can also use DHS money because both the military and the DHS have interests in doing away with the ever-increasing invasion of our country.
Trump referenced his scheduled Tuesday morning meeting with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the next likely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Trump is meeting with the Democratic leaders to try and come to an agreement on border wall funding.
“Republicans still control the House, the Senate, and the White House, and they have the power to keep government open. Our country cannot afford a Trump Shutdown, especially at this time of economic uncertainty,” Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint Monday statement.
Democrats have declared that they will only go so far as to give Trump 1.3 billion dollars for border security funding in the latest spending bill, while Republicans have said the president must get at least 5 billion. The two sides have been at an impasse for nearly a month of negotiations with the deadline coming the Friday before Christmas.
Build the d*mn wall and forget about the Democrats. “If you build it, they will not come.”
