Trump asks for funding for what he was elected for.


Trump's campaign promise was that Mexico was going to pay for the wall, not that he was going to hold American's hostage until Congress coughs up taxpayer money for his ill conceived wall, that still has no design, no plan of where it will actually go and he has yet to obtained the private property rights.

Bully Trump doesn't get his way.

Throws tantrum.

Pretty simple


Dems should not have given him 1.37 bn in funds for his wall in 2018 then. When will they learn when you get folks used to having things for free...they ALWAYS come back for MORE! Oh wait! Hmmm.

Democrats are going to end up looking bad again...not Trump. The wall will continue and their own voters are going to be angry at them not negotiating sooner.



trump should have taken the 25 billion when he had the chance! lmao

how do you all rate his negotiating skills?


Please share with me when they ever offered him 25 billion for the border wall?

I wanna know why the hell pelosi is worth 120 million $.

She only makes 200k a year . if she never spent a dime it would take her 60 years to get 120 million.
Something is not right at all bout that.


I heard she was good at "investing".

Either that or she got rich because unlike my opinion above, she actually sweats every cent.


Yeah, and trump was good at taking handouts from his daddy.


You keep saying that, but that's kinda what caring parents do as long as they know you're trying. You might not have experienced that, but some of us are lucky enough to have.

Trumps trying to keep his promises.
They bitch at him for sticking to his guns.
If he backs down they'll bitch he didn't keep his promises.

Might as well stay the course


might as well

screw all the people not getting paid

black belt at the game
does not mean you do the right thing


Funny, nobody gave a crap when all of us in middle America were losing our jobs to China due to Obama's policies. I remember Obama said to just get used to it because those jobs weren't coming back.

Tell nancy to give trump his wall if she's so concerned about the little people.
She could create all kinds of new jobs....

But politics...

The democrats idea of compromise has always been "just do it our way"

You can't negotiate by beginning with "no". It's pointless.

The president should hold his ground until the democrats are willing to actually negotiate.

If Nancy had at least said "no, but we are willing to negotiate if you will give us (something they want) then there would be a reason to stay and discuss the possibilities, to negotiate.

No is a dead end.

Meh

The man only wants what amounts to .1% of the federal budget to goto his barrier.

Cost is obviously not an issue, why don't the dems just let it go?

If I made 800 dollars a week, I certainly wouldn't care about spending 80 cents on a candybar.



Maybe it’s because the Democrats recognize this so-called “barrier” for what it really is; a virtually useless vanity project for whose major purpose is to stoke the ego of an incompetent, petty man-child who blustered his way into an office he’s shown himself to be wholly unqualified to hold?

Maybe it’s because those funds could be put to use on security measures that would (and have proven to) be more effective, against a wider array of threats, than a mere wall.

The Democrats have offered to discuss ways to improve border, and national security, but 45 won’t consider anything but his dumb barrier.

They offer a healthier apple for less money, but manchild won’t take anything but his junk-food candy bar.

Just goes to show you how much these democrats really care. Keeping the government shut down because they don't want extra protection for the citizens of the country they live in.

Majority did not vote for Trump.

Majority does not want an archaic wall.

But, Yes! Trump is self serving.

January 24, 2018
Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer on Tuesday pulled back an offer of $25 billion for President Donald Trump's long-promised southern border wall, as lawmakers scrambled to figure out how to push a deal to protect 700,000 or more so-called Dreamer immigrants from deportation.

Schumer had made the offer last Friday in a last-ditch effort to head off a government shutdown, then came scalding criticism from his party's liberal activist base that Democrats had given up too easily in reopening the government without more concrete promises on immigration.

A wall is a passive good start. Obama's border patrol boss confirmed that the agents say a wall will work.

A wall is meant to funnel migrants to ports of entry for legal entry. MS-13 doesn't want that because they would never get in and couldn't sell young girls as slaves. If Nancy wants a virtual wall, it will take a good bit of the foreign aid she is pushing to do that. Would she give that up?

Oh I don't know, maybe instead of her saying no wall she could have said we will build your wall if you agree to "insert what the hell ever policy" here.

But she said no wall.
Meaning there is no compromise coming from her side.

I saw an article the other day crying about someone dying because they couldn't get help and it was because of the shut down. The left will say anything, they have no couth.

Yes he and DHS have!



In FY 2017 Congress provided DHS $292 million to build 40 miles of a steel bollard wall in the San Diego, El Centro and El Paso Sectors – Border Patrol’s highest priority locations – in place of an outdated and operationally ineffective barrier. DHS received its FY17 funding for border wall construction in May 2017. DHS awarded the first contract against that funding in November 2017 and began construction three months later in February 2018. As of November 21, 2018, CBP has constructed more than 31 of the 40 miles with the remaining 9 miles scheduled for completion by early 2019.

El Centro Project (2.25 miles): Completed.
El Paso Project (20 miles): Completed
San Diego Primary Project (14 miles): Completion anticipated in May 2019.
El Paso Project (4 miles): Construction started in September.

The El Centro Sector built approximately two miles of 30' steel bollard wall west of the Calexico West Port of Entry. The contract was awarded in November 2017, construction started in February 2018 and was completed in October 2018.
