Last week, Congress temporarily prevented a shutdown by pushing the official deadline of a government funding bill to December 21.
President Trump will be meeting with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer in order to discuss the pending government spending package. Both Democrats are holding the bill hostage over the border wall funding.
Trump is requesting $5 billion for the border wall project while the Democrats in Congress are offering just $1.3 billion to protect our border.
White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway appeared on “America’s Newsroom” this morning to speak with host Bill Hemmer about this ongoing debate over funding.
“Border security is national security. The president’s first and primary duty is to keep the American citizenry safe. And he’s trying to do that here.”
What she said will expose the Democrats’ secret agenda for the world to see.
“The Democrats have a central question in front of them, Bill: Do they want to keep the government open or do they want to keep the borders open?”
President Trump is reaching across the aisle here to work with these Democrats but they refuse to even entertain the thought of funding this wall simply because they do not like him or his politics.
