Trump and the White House have declared a national emergency proposing emergency funding for the border wall.
Capitol Hill, Speaker Nancy Pelosi opposed border wall funding in her weekly press conference stated that, “There’s not going to be any wall money in legislation.”
The end of the government shutdown was a success to Pelosi and Democrats, as they are not interested in including border wall funding.
Trump claims that despite evidence and proof of caravans coming, Democrats aren’t interested in the wall and that “Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee are wasting their time.”
“Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee are wasting their time. Democrats, despite all of the evidence, proof and Caravans coming, are not going to give money to build the DESPERATELY needed WALL. I’ve got you covered. Wall is already being built, I don’t expect much help!”
