close tovideo Senate to take stopgap bill with border wall financing
President Trump may be suggested with some political problems in the future, if he successfully funded his border wall, Mollie Hemingway, senior editor for the Federalist, on the “Special Report” All-Star panel on Friday night.
After the trump suit is determined, conversely, of course, what critics perceived as the “plan cave research” on the financing of the Berlin wall-something that he put on as we know, during the 2016 presidential elections — trump doubled down on his threat of a partial government shutdown, which was triggered at midnight Friday after Congress set a deadline for passing a spending.
All-Stars Hemingway, along with Washington Examiner commentary writer Tom Rogan and U.S. News & World Report senior writer David Catania, all weighed in on the potential political fallout of the shutdown.
Hemingway began by arguing that the absence of an “incentive” structure has prevented meaningful immigration reform, and that both Democrats and Republicans have benefited, “with the question, without actually solving.”
“What makes this particularly interesting is Donald Trump has no incentive to do anything other than wait for a bill that provides money for the border fence,” said Hemingway of the panel. “I mean, he could wait as long as he wants to, partly because we have a government, which financed 75 percent, but also because, if he do not this, it is a very serious problem for him and his electoral future. And he has no incentive to accept anything other than a meaningful boundary wall-financing.”
“Donald Trump has no incentive to do anything other than wait for an invoice, the fence money for the border.”

She added that the Democrats may be “in the hands of,” since you have already supports border security in the past.
However, Catania pushed back, the fact that trump the demand for a wall of “symbolic”, and this is where the “opposition.”
“The President even the language changed on this,” Catania said. “He talks about the fins and not the wall!”
Catania suggested that the Democrats “hold the cards” in this budget battle, indicating that the Deputy President Mike Pence, a senior White House official, Jared Kushner, and the Office of Management and Budget Director and acting chief of staff of the White house Mick Mulvaney went to Capitol Hill to meet with Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY
Meanwhile, Rogan claims that Trump “wants” the shutdown in the Wake of the Minister of defense of Jim Mattis’ resignation is because the President wants to show, in the direction of 2020, he is still the “hard” candidate his voters, elected until 2016.
Rogan added that it was the President’s advantage, the Democrats were seen as opposing border security through a lot of America, so the perception would probably be negative for their candidate. “So the flip can be said in his favor later,” Rogan.
