In it he got a chance to recover his ego from the beatdown he got a week ago from Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats….
He told media people that his Intelligence people had their views on ISIS, North Korea and Iran…
But he disagreed with them…
He told media people that he’s c confident that his 25% China tariffs will get America more money and business…
He was asked also about negotiations that have begun on the Department of Homeland Security’s Budget…
Trump took the track that there was a need for a ‘wall’….
If there was no money for HIS definition of a wall….Concrete or Steel?
He wasn’t interested in the negotiations….
The whole exercise was as John King mentioned from a man in an Alternate Universe….
Democrats are NOT gonna ok BILLIONS for a ‘hard’ wall…
House Speaker Pelosi is out with her opening numbers for fencing and other border enforcement equipment….The Homeland Budget would get big money gains…But?
No ‘wall‘ money specifically….
This leads us to this come February 15….
Trump declaring a ‘national emergency’ .…allowing him to steal money for HIS wall from other programs , thus cancelling Congress’s legal position of allocating money for the executive branch to spend….
THAT is something conservatives are afraid of setting a precedent that could come back to haunt them if a Democrat becomes President….
Would Trump NOT sign ANY budget bill to fund the agencies and departments that just got money to reopen…
Donald Trump as usual?
Is turning everything he touches into shit…..
President Trump said Thursday he will not accept a deal to avert another government shutdown without money for his long-desired border wall, pushing back on Democrats who stressed their opposition to a wall.
“No. Because if there’s no wall, it doesn’t work,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office when asked if he could accept border measures other than a wall.
Trump’s comments show he remains at an impasse with Democrats over his demand for a wall with a second shutdown looming in just over two weeks. They also raise the likelihood he may circumvent Congress in a bid to build the wall on his own.
The president said he would wait to see if Congress can come up with an agreement before the Feb. 15 funding deadline before he decides whether to declare a national emergency at the southern border.
But Trump did not sound optimistic negotiators would produce a bill he could support, accusing Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of “playing games” and saying “I don’t think they’re going to make a deal.”
Pelosi said earlier Thursday that Democrats remain adamantly opposed to wall funding, but could provide money for new fencing and other barriers in a spending bill.
