Trump wants Congress to fund his 'big, beautiful' Mexican border wall

In opinion polls during and after that shutdown, voters loudly disapproved of the Republican Party, which controlled the House of Representatives at the time. Trump's threat is to veto any such bill unless it features money for the wall. You're wasting your time.

When asked whether President Donald Trump will sign any budget bill that does not including funding for the border wall, the White House said Thursday that President Donald Trump will fulfill his campaign promise and make sure that funding for the wall gets done.


The New York Times reported this week that Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are feuding bitterly, if privately, save for the occasional tweet. The two have clashed publicly in the past.

DAVIS: Oh, it's not great and certainly a bit complicated. But Trump omitted the most controversial parts of his statements, including that the violence was the responsibility of "many sides" and his comment that "very fine people" were among the white supremacists who assembled to defend a Confederate monument while chanting anti-Semitic slogans. "I think it's important we stay unified but I think the President is employing a strategy he thinks is effective for him".

The impasse led to an unintended exercise in hilarity by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday. Lawmakers are still trying to figure out whether there is a debt bill that can pass with only Republican votes in the House, or whether they will need to move a bill with bipartisan support that doesn't contain any spending cuts. The president has said he will get Mexico to reimburse US taxpayers for the cost, but it's not clear exactly how he would do that.

'Now the obstructionist Democrats would like us not to do it, ' the president said during a rally speech in Phoenix, Arizona. How unusual is that? "I mean bad people, I mean anybody who wants to come into this country and do harm", said acting ICE Director Todd Homan. "You want to preserve the relationship and a level of trust", said Matt Mackowiak, a Republican consultant. "Someday they might not treat me fairly and I'll let you know about it", said Trump. "While no one has a real plan that I can understand, I would think that the Senate leadership would do all it could to avoid conflating the CR and the debt extension language". Jeff Flake in Arizon's GOP primary.

The president returned to the topic of immigration and went on to drive home the need for border funding. But if they abandon him, they might not get anything done. Senate Republicans always back their own incumbents. That's the way our system works, a lesson he apparently missed when he went to "better schools" and was "a better student" than his critics. A report by the Democratic staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has estimated the cost at closer to $70 billion, not including the annual cost of maintenance.

SHAPIRO:.Is pretty extraordinary for a man in the Oval Office.

The flap over the border wall comes at a particularly hard time for Donald Trump.

DAVIS: There is legitimate concern on Capitol Hill over a shutdown. Congress has faced the threat of one every fall for at least the past four years, since the government shut down in 2013 over Obamacare. That limit was reached months ago, and the federal government will apparently run out of cash by the end of September or early October if nothing changes. Daniel Patrick Moynihan referred to as "boob bait for Bubba" - a tough-sounding but dumb idea useful for appealing to a certain segment of the electorate that is not well-informed or discerning on matters of policy.
