*Tomorrow January 3rd, 2019 Democratic House Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California will get her old job back….
Speaker of the US House of Representatives ….
She got the spot back with the election of 40 Democratic House members , which forms that parties majority in the House in Congress…
Donald Trump has been peddling this idea that he would get a ‘border wall’ built for almost 3 years….
First he promised the Mexican Govt. would pay for the wall…
But THAT ain’t gonna happen…
He wants you and me tax payer’s to reach into OUR pockets and pay for a wall?
Heck , even Republicans aren’t happy with this…
Trump will have 53 fellow Republican US Senators to vote with him as of tomorrow…
He needs 60 Senators in total…..
Democrats won’t give him the 7 or more votes he’d need….
Pelosi wants to forward two spending bills that would restore money for the cabinet departments that need the funding (25% of the all of them)….
Trump is still ranting he won’t sign unless he gets his asked for $5 Billion….
The way I see it?
Nor can 7 Democratic US Senators….
Trump KNOWS this….
It’s gonna be an interesting meeting, eh?
Some Federal employee’s are beginning to apply for state jobless benefits since Trump has announced that he’s all right if he has those employee’s go without pay indefinitely ……
President Trump has invited top congressional leaders in both parties to the White House on Wednesday for a briefing on border security amid the ongoing partial government shutdown.
Trump will host the leader and whip of each party from both chambers, a list that includes expected Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), incoming House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), House GOP leaders Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) and Steve Scalise (La.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), and Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.), sources told The Hill.
The news of the briefing comes after a prolonged impasse in which Trump hammered Democrats as weak on border security, and Democrats set out a plan to pass bills reopening the government in the House, which they will control starting Thursday.
Trump has demanded $5 billion to fund a border wall along the southern border, while Democrats have refused to offer anything more than an extension for 2018 border security funds that included $1.3 billion for fencing.
The partial shutdown, now in its 11th day, has forced 800,000 workers to either stay home or work without pay.
Trump appeared to offer Pelosi an olive branch earlier Tuesday, inviting her to make a deal to end the partial government shutdown.
“Border Security and the Wall ‘thing’ and Shutdown is not where Nancy Pelosi wanted to start her tenure as Speaker!” he wrote. “Let’s make a deal?”
Pelosi later appeared to brush aside Trump’s suggestion….
*Note….The Trump meeting is actually a day BEFORE Pelosi is sworn in as Speaker….
