Border Wall: Trump’s Response To Reporter’s Question Will Have Dems Looking For A ‘Safe Space’
We are about two weeks into the government shutdown and the end does not look near. Pelosi and Schumer are still holding up progress. Trump met with the Democratic leaders to once again try and make them see reason.
Trump came away from the meeting claiming that there was some progress made. But it seems the only real progress is that Democrats are now aware that Trump is not bluffing.
“We can call a national emergency [to build a border wall] because of the security of our country,” Trump told reporters in the Rose Garden, during a lengthy and impromptu press conference.
“I may do it,” he said, before adding, “If we can do it through a negotiated process, we’re giving it a shot.”
“This is national security we’re talking about, we’re not talking about games,” he told reporters. “We’re not playing games, we have to do it.”
Trump claims the only thing they really talked about when it came to the wall was the composition.
“Steel is more expensive than the concrete, but I feel like we’re talking about steel because the other side feels better about it,” he said.
Schumer came out of the meeting blaming Trump for the continued Shutdown.
“He’d keep the government closed for a very long period of time, months or even years.”
Pelosi just said that there was not necessarily progress when it came to negotiations but instead just a better understanding of where everyone stands.
Pelosi’s legislation to fund the government without addressing the border wall failed as Mitch McConnell stopped it in its tracks.
“The legislation was immediately dismissed by Republican leadership. McConnell, R-Ky., called the bills “a time-wasting act of political posturing” and said that “a resolution will have to be palatable to House Democrats and Senate Republicans alike.”
“We need to make policy rather than simply making political theatre,” he told reporters.
So it looks like the Democrats are going to have to come to terms about building the Border Wall.
