He also does NOT want to give Donald Trump a black check for $5 Billion for a wall as a deal to restore Alabama citizens federal government services and paychecks…
He is asking for more talks and detailed plan’s from the Trump admin on what they would IF they where given any money….
Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) on Sunday said he would not agree to fund construction of a border wall until he sees a concrete plan of how the money will be spent.
Jones, who is running for reelection next year in a solidly Republican state, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the partial government shutdown is “all political posturing” for now.
“I am not going to give wall money just to give wall money,” he said. “What I would like to see is the plan about how that money is going to be spent, where it’s going to be spent. That’s what we have been lacking so far in this shutdown for the last three weeks.”
