We Knew even with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in talking with McConnell finally?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wasn’t and couldn’t politically give Donald Trump his nonsensical billions for a border wall money….
Three weeks from now isn’t gonna change Pelosi’s mind….
Then we’ll see what the New York City Real Estate turned entertainer tries to do as he licks his wounded ego….
He’s gotta be a bit pissed….
The Rightwingnuts ARE calling him a ‘wimp’ that got beat by a women….
We’ll see if Trump can actually accept a compromise ‘deal ‘on keeping the government open, getting immigration enforcement money, without a wall, and doing some immigration reform….It will take him ignoring some the rightwingnuts from his party in the end…
It took 35 days, but President Donald Trump ultimately caved to Democratic demands that he reopen the government before they’d entertain negotiations on border security. And in 21 more, Trump will have to decide whether to give in again, because he’s not likely to get what he wants.
Trump agreed Friday to back a three-week continuing resolution that will reopen the government through Feb. 15. But he is not giving up on his quest to secure funding for wall along the southern border.
“We really have no choice but to build a powerful wall or steel barrier,” Trump said as he concluded remarks from the Rose Garden announcing the deal to temporarily reopen government. “If we don’t get a fair deal from Congress, the government will either shut down on Feb. 15 again or I will use the powers afforded to me under the laws and the Constitution of the United States to address this emergency.”
Democrats say they will not agree to provide funding for the wall, period. If they were willing to entertain that, they would’ve done so before the government shutdown in December or in the more than a month since as roughly 800,000 federal workers went without pay.
“Have I not been clear on the wall?” Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Friday when one asked if Democrats would continue to object to wall funding in the upcoming negotiations. “I’ve been very clear.”
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer was more direct: “Democrats are against the wall.”
Trump agreed to reopen government “without preconditions,” the New York Democrat noted, as he proudly pointed out that the agreement endorses the position Democrats have held throughout the shutdown….
In the end?
The Rightwingnuts are gonna have to hang with Donald Trump….
They have nowhere else to go…..
We’ll see if Trump’s poll numbers recover….
A failure to would mean BIG Trouble for the GOP which went along with Trump’s failed 35 day flex…..
