To weigh the former-trump-campaign director of data and strategy, Matt Braynard and Suzan Johnson Cook, former adviser to presidents Clinton and Obama.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, announced on Wednesday, the Senate will consider a stopgap measure to continue funding the government to avert a shutdown later this week – but it is not President Trump the desired $5 billion for border wall-financing, because the “reality of our political presence.”

“Later this morning, we have a continuing resolution, a continuing funding for the Federal government,” McConnell, R-Ky., said on the Senate floor. “The measure will provide the resources that are necessary to continue the normal operation, of the 8. February.”

The announcement comes as Congress faces a Friday deadline for the Fund is a part of the government, or the risk of a part to have. The legislature was at a standstill on the President the claims for $5 billion for the financing of the border wall.

The temporary solution not, have set new funding for border wall – to-wall Democrats.

McConnell, though, tore into Democrats on Wednesday for the rejection of “an extremely competitive offer yesterday” to 1 billion US dollars for the border security. He called the compromise offer “sensible policy.”

“Not aside, I’m sorry that my Democrat colleagues could tell you exactly, partiality, and show the same good faith of the flexibility that the President has shown, to provide the resources that our nation needs to secure the integrity of our borders and the safety of American families,” he said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, told reporters on Tuesday that he did not think that McConnell would have passed the offer in either chamber. He also said that a “reprogramming” would require money from other agencies, with the consent of the Congress.

“You don’t come,” he said.


In a tweet on Wednesday, the President one way or the other said, the wall is built “.” He has again insisted that he could not order the military to build the wall, if the Congress approve the funding.

“One way or another, we will win on the wall!” Trump said.

Trump – promoting, as we know, for Mexico to pay for the wall – money wall argues that Mexico is “indirectly”, through the new trade deal between the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

“Mexico is paying (indirectly) for the wall, thanks to the new USMCA, the replacement for the NAFTA!”, he said. “Far more money come to the USA Because of the enormous dangers at the border, including the large-scale criminal and drug inflow, the military of the United States, build the wall!”

At the White house on Tuesday, there were signs that the government’s backing down on its previous high standards for the $5 billion funding. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters that they are disappointed on Tuesday were “” that the Senate had not voted on anything, and the White house said was looking at “all possibilities” to additional funds — including the need to redirect funds or “reprogrammed” from other departments.


“President Trump everyone has asked his Cabinet secretaries to look for the financing that can be used to protect our borders and give the President the opportunity to fulfill its constitutional duties to protect the American people with a secure border,” she said.

Without a resolution, the more than 800,000 government employees are furloughed, or work, without pay, to disturb the operations of the government.
