Democrat deal to avoid another partial Government shutdown. $1.375 billion for 55 miles of “physical barriers”, not a wall. Good compromise?
They want Trump, to shut the government down, to veto it.
Pelosi and Chuckie would be on every camera saying “ see how wonderful Democrats are, we compromised” and Trump shut it government down , again!
TRUMP GETS OWNED AGAIN
1.3 billion dollars for this fiscal session. I would accept under the condition that the dems shouldn’t be surprised if more funds are requested at the next fiscal session. We need to take baby steps. Even if 5 billion isn’t a lot
You were promised a great wall from sea to shining sea. You just got 50 miles of fence. Hahaha!
Why do you want illegals coming across the border in droves with nowhere to go? I don’t get it.
Well we know Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want filthy illegals on her property after she kicked them out.
Facts matter. A Trump wall supporter climbed over the wall on her property. She was detained for trespassing. She is not a “filthy illegal” but rather a white US citizen.
The irony is that she wants the wall and protests by climbing over a wall, thereby proving that walls don’t work. You gotta 😂.
Facts do matter. There were illegals there who setup a tent and declared sanctuary. Nancy Pelosi kicked those filthy illegals out anyway.
Trump supporters are easily fooled. 10 seconds of Google tells me Cowboy is as gullible as they come. It also told me Pelosi just has a fenced backyard not a fence around her house.
I wasn’t fooled by Nancy Pelosi. She obviously doesn’t want filthy illegals hanging around her place after they set up a sanctuary. Doesn’t surprise me one bit. I can see her declaring that the peasants can all eat cake from her balcony.
I’m surprised the democrat haven’t create an adopt an illegal program.
I can’t see Trump ever agreeing to this. Only 1/4 of what he ask for. And on top of this...we have to reduce the number of beds for detainees. Stupid is as stupid does.
Call it whatever they want, just build it and get this over with. At this point it just comes off as petty.
No, but the best we can get at this time.
Full wall for dreamers
That is $1.375 too much!!
4 billion short
Mexicans should be paying for it...just like your man promised.
It was an axiom known as “tongue in cheek”. Conservatives understood it. Liberals didn’t ....which makes it funny.
LMAO!! Keep telling yourself that. Go back and watch all of the campaign rallies where he said the Mexicans would pay for it. He only backed off when he got elected and Mexico gave him the finger.
I dont think he really believes his rhetoric anyway.
Neither did we. We just loved shouting “MEXICO” when he would ask who was paying for it.
It's a drummed up issue with the purpose of division. That is the point.
His promise was quite literal and you know it.
It was literal to liberals. It was funny 😄 to Conservatives. Like shouting “Lock her up. Lock her up”. Funny 😄 to us but we knew it would never happen.
“An August 2015 campaign position paper said "Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do," the U.S. would "impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages," increase fees on visas and ports of entry into the U.S., and possibly implement tariffs or cut aid”
“An April 2016 campaign memo outlined similar ways of pressuring Mexico. That plan explicitly said Mexico would make "a one-time payment of $5 - 10 billion" for the wall.”
None of my Conservative friends read that memo nor did we ever expect Mexico to pay for it. We just loved yelling “MEXICO” when our great President asked us who was gonna pay for it. It’s all in fun.
MEDICARE FOR ALL! WHO’S GONNA PAY FOR IT?? UZBEKISTAN!!!
Man, you’re right... that’s a blast.
LMAO!! Yeah right glock. That's your story and you're sticking to it. 🤣🤣
I mean...I'm pretty happy with it but I don't think the Republicans are getting what they want at all. $1.375 billion will get you like...50-60 miles of wall? Jesus Christ, guys. Why did the Republican negotiators even agree to that? What a bunch of chumps
No. It doesn’t help that The turtle is siding with the Dems.
55 miles?!? That's a surrender, not a compromise. 🐂💩
This is Trump letting down his base.
He’s going to build the wall with the military. Much of this negotiation was about exposing the Democrats’ anti-American ideals.
That’s obvious. Let’s move forward post haste! Flanking speed!!!
It’s already being built just not reported on.
Trump has a way of stretching funds farther than initial estimates expected.
He won’t let one cent of that go to waste, and it’s a step in the right direction at least.
If it’s already being built, then why do we need the 5 billion from congress? 🥴🥴🥴🙄🙄🙄
If it’s not being reported on, then how did you hear about it?
Zimmy, because the proper and functional way is for Congress to pass the funds specifically for the wall. These negotiations and shutdown were about showing the American people how the Democrats don’t care about our National securely and choose illegals over Americans. He has been and will continue building the wall with the Defense budget. Remember how he increased that?
MrMD, Trump has said it himself.
Psst... trump lies. It’s what he does. If the wall was being built, he would send out pictures and video every day.
If he did that then the Dems would say he doesn’t need the money. Optics.
Kscott- seems to me if the wall is being built with “other” money already, it would piss the American people off with a shutdown to shelve out even more money, your analysis makes absolutely no sense!
If it’s not being reported on, and trump is keeping it secret from the media, then how did you hear about it?
The American people would rather see Congress do their jobs and pass funding the proper way so they can build the wall. Everyone would rather see new jobs and not have the military waste their time building it. But national security is of utmost importance. Trump won on all fronts with the shutdown. Made the Dems look bad and still gets the wall.
Kscott- you are delusional, most of us Americans don’t want that silly wall, or don’t care, again if there is already money there and the wall is being built there is no reason congress should allocate more money for it, in fact the Democrats will use that to their benefit, and that shutdown was probably one of the biggest debacles in modern Presidential history.
Most Americans don’t have the full picture as to why the wall is so critically important. Nevertheless, most still want the wall and support is growing.
The shutdown made the Dems look bad since they wouldn’t negotiate. Trump came out ahead so not sure why you think it’s was some great misstep by Trump?? 🤔
I want to know more about how the wall is being built in secret.
I’m guessing you didn’t see the turnout at the El Paso rally last night? There’s never been so much excitement for a president in my lifetime, and it’s global. They had a Trump float and US flags at a festival parade in Italy.
You guys have internet access, right?
From your articles:
“Just over 30 miles (48 kilometres) of border wall has been built since Mr Trump became president. All told, 685 miles (1,046 kilometres) of the 1,954-mile (3,126 kilometre) border has fencing or walls.”
Is that what you’re talking about? 30 miles?
What do you imagine happening, exactly?
Do you think trump is going to do some big reveal where the border wall is completed seemingly overnight and he surprises everyone by unveiling it?
30 miles is a lot, especially since you’re claiming he hasn’t built any. Now you know the truth. You’re welcome.
No, we need much more than just the 30 miles. I think it was estimated around another 700 miles. I don’t know if you have a short memory or what but I’ve said numerous times he’ll have the Army Corps of Engineers build it. That’s what I think. He didn’t run it by me, for the record.
So are you now admitting you were wrong about him already building the wall?
I’d be happy if he had it built. I just don’t believe he’s doing it in secret or that he’s slipping it by without anyone noticing.
And 30 miles is great, but it’s not a secret.
I never said it was a secret. You guys are the ones challenging me on whether he was already building it or not.
Do you want to tell him, or should I? 😂
Zimmy, have you made peace with the fact that the wall’s being built?
Kscott- I could care less about the wall, but as long as it doesn’t cost billions it’s fine. Since Trump is building it already than the problem seems to be solved. 😉
"If we didn't do that shutdown we would not have been able to show this country, these politicians, the world, what the hell is happening with the border," he said. "That was a very important thing we did."
“President Trump on Monday said he would build his long-desired wall along the southern border regardless of whether Congress approves funding for it.
"Just so you know, we're building the wall anyway," Trump said at a campaign rally in El Paso, Texas, which sits directly across the Rio Grande from Mexico.”
Those things sound oddly familiar. 🤔 My “magical information”.
It’s going to cost billions and is money well spent. Maybe the best thing we spend money on in decades.
Those 30 miles sure seem like the replacement barriers mentioned in this article.
Do you pay for your garbage?
Yes the city has garbage pick up! Oh the horror 😱 socialism! 😱😱😱😱

Yes...and set a presidence for any future president to declare an emergency every time they don't get what they want. That is REALLY smart.
The honor of setting the precedent goes to Jimmy Carter in 1979. It’s been used 57 since then.
The border wall does not constitute a national emergency. The vast majority of illegal immigrants in the United States are here because they overstayed their visas. Illegal immigrants are not pouring over the border because there is no fence or wall. This is all drummed up to create division in the country, and it is having the desired effect.
You were already wrong about President Trump setting the precedent, so I don’t think you’ve done enough research to speak intelligently on this subject.
I dont see it that way. He would be setting a presidence for declaring a national emergency for something that doesn't even come close to being one. Why so you think that so many Republicans are advising against it? They do not want the next Democratic president declaring a national emergency for something like climate change. If trump declares a national emergency for this and gets away with it, what would stop that in the future?
Why dont you go read what your elected Republican representatives are saying and then come back and speak intelligently on the issue.
Why don’t you see that Jimmy Carter actually set the precedent in 1979? Did you open the link?
And you keep spelling precedent wrong.
He didn't set the "precident" for declaring a national emergency for drummed up non issues.
And thank you grammar nazi.
The fact is that Jimmy Carter set the precedent in 1979. You were wrong.
You’re welcome! I’m always happy to educate! 😁
And what about the other 57 times it was used?
Lol. I am not wrong. Republican elected representatives agree with me.
And if you call that "educating", you need to go look up the definition.
Jimmy Carter set the precedent in 1979. You are wrong.
I am not wrong. Go back and read the story in your own link. Jimmy Carter used it during the hostage crisis. The majority of that is still in place today.
Jimmy Carter set the precedent so you were wrong. It’s ok to admit that you were wrong. That is how you learn.
Lol. Yes, that is how we learn. So when are you going to admit that you are wrong and learn something?
I knew you weren’t intelligent enough to speak on this subject. Well you’re welcome for the education anyway.
Lol. Like I said, fo back and look at the facts, and even the link that you posted. Dont tell me that you didn't even read what you posted?
It’s been little over an hour since you first found out that Jimmy Carter set the precedent for national emergency powers, and it’s been used 57 times after that, yet you still won’t admit you were wrong about President Trump setting the precedent.
And he still spelled precedent wrong, also, cowboy. Go back and look....I’m sorry but you didn’t educate him. He spelled it precident after you corrected him! 😜😜😜
Horrible. Let’s hope the early reports are wrong.
I told you both, he would lose this one. Let him declare national emergency, he will lose that too! 😀
Oh Keyann, always a joy to prove you wrong! 😀
Oh Keyann on this very app you predicted the GOP would retain the House, so now who is delusional again? 🤷🏻♂️
But there was. 🥴
