Democrats, Trump Spar Over Border Wall Funding Ahead of Possible Government Shutdown
Guess what? If you elect too many anti-government whack jobs who disrespect every American institution it turns out that they can’t govern. The most dysfunctional congress ever bumbles along under the leadership of the worst president in U.S. history, still unable to do the basic blocking and tackling of creating a lasting budget.
Washington is on the brink of another government shutdown, with Democrats and Republicans sparring over funding President Donald Trump’s signature (and unfulfilled) campaign promise, with government funding set to expire on Dec. 7 at midnight.
Trump wants $5 billion in funding to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border as part of any agreement to sign a package of the remaining funding bills yet to be signed into law for the next fiscal year.
“There is a possible shutdown if we don’t get the wall,” Trump said Thursday as he departed the White House for the G-20 Summit in Argentina. “If we don’t get border security, possible shutdown.”
