Partial government shutdown ends without funds for wall

28 January 2019

President Trump will secure the USA border with Mexico "with or without Congress", White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Sunday, as negotiations over Trump's long-sought border wall begin anew.

This raised pressure to reach a deal - and Trump buckled, even at the risk of angering his right-wing voter base.

Mulvaney then pushed the blame on Democrats. The wall was a key campaign pledge of Trump's during his successful 2016 run for the White House, when he repeatedly said Mexico would pay for it, a claim Mexico City has often rejected.

Declaring an emergency could allow Trump to circumvent Congress and repurpose funds Congress has appropriated for other purposes in order to build a wall. "This is a serious humanitarian and security crisis", Mulvaney said of Trump.

Holtz disagreed with those who said Trump "caved" to Democrats, and said that he cares about the American people.

"He also can't do that [make a deal] as long as he listens to White House adviser Stephen Miller, the hard-line restrictionist in the White House", the editorial advocated. Following the president's announcement on Friday, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) held a news conference in which they called it "great news" for the 800,000 furloughed workers affected by the shutdown.

By the time President Donald Trump capitulated Friday, ending the shutdown, Pelosi had burnished her image as the shrewd, steely and unquestioned leader of her party.

On Thursday, two competing bills to end the partial shutdown failed in the Senate, underscoring the inability of Democrats and Trump's Republicans to agree on a compromise that to reopen government and commit to wall construction.

"Yeah I think he actually is", Mulvaney told CBS, asked whether Trump was prepared to repeat the shutdown.

When will they get paid? That's the right way to do it, but at the end of the day, the president is going to secure the border one way or another'. The Trump administration is on the defensive this week after some conservative commentators - like Ann Coulter - said the president has capitulated again to Democrats.

"Jim Clyburn, my former colleague from SC, said that the experts thought we really needed a barrier, [and that] he could vote for it". Mike Cernovich got Trump with a mean, if extremely mixed, metaphor, calling him the "commander-in-soy" and Speaker Pelosi an "alpha".

Democrats so far have suggested they are willing to give Trump the full $5.7 billion he wants for improved security, such as for tightened controls at ports of entry, more border agents and more use of technology to control the border, but none for a wall.

"They are willing to put partisanship aside, I think, and put the security of the American people first", Trump said. "The government will shut down again, but the president-ignore what Nancy said today because that's just garbage, the president gets his State of the Union address", Gorka responded to Dobbs.

Trump retreated on Friday from his demand for funding for a U.S. -Mexico border wall that had caused the closure of about a quarter of the government. A bipartisan committee will work together with the Department of Homeland Security to come up with a border security package for the president to sign.
