House Republicans ” push to add $5 billion for President Trump the long-promised border wall-a bill that would Fund most of the Federal government to prevent to the beginning of February — and that the partial government deleted shutdown this week, a key procedural hurdle on Thursday night.

The house voted, 221-179, along party lines, a “rule” to get the measure to the floor for a final vote. It hours after the President, house GOP leaders came to adopt he to pass a Senate package that is not money for the barrier.

Trump’s statement increases the chances that parts of the Federal government would operations cease at midnight Friday, because it is very unlikely that a bill, which means that the border wall would be in the Senate.


In a video statement tweeted Thursday afternoon, Trump said he was “fighting very hard for the border security” by the insistence on funding for the wall, a Central promise of his 2016 presidential campaign.

“We need the wall. The Democrats know it, everyone knows it,” Trump said. “It’s just a game, if you don’t say, ‘you need the wall.” … You want to try and do everything possible to hurt us due to the fact it is policy. I understand that. I don’t even hold it against you, except you always put your country first, and they are not so.”

“Watch what happens,” Trump said at the end of his statement.

Trump insists the walls of ‘better than nothing’

Trump says the funding must report to contain a statement to the border security chief White House correspondent John Roberts.

The Senate measure, which passed by voice vote late Wednesday, where a total of 1.6 billion dollars for border security, but no funds for a border wall. Trump’s allies had warned him, he would still be financing less of an impact on the demand of the wall, after the Democrats control of the house on Jan. 3 and worried that Trump will make the failure good on his signature campaign promise to obstruct, could his re-election campaign.

After a meeting with Trump in the White house earlier Thursday, the speaker of the house of representatives Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and House majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told reporters that Trump had told them that he would not measure the letter of the “legitimate concerns for border security.”

Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said Trump had “gotten word” to him, he would get either “funded to the limit or he completes the whole thing.” A day earlier, Limbaugh complained that there seemed to be, “Trump gets nothing and the Democrats get everything, including the control of the house.”

Trump calls for Congress to review funding for wall and spending bill as shutdown deadline looms

The President issued threatening tweets and a stern statement from his press Secretary before the call to GOP lawmakers to the White house, where he told them that he was not on Board with the Senate measure, which would Fund much of the government, through Feb. 8.

“I urge the Congress to defend the border of our nation,” Trump said at a White House event. “Walls work, whether we want it or not.”


High-voltage drive, the trump added: “I am looking forward to the signing of a law that met our basic obligation to the American people … we will see what we can do.”

To float, despite of its line in the sand, Trump seemed to be that will compromise a potential path to the “steel fins” on the border rather than the concrete barrier he’d talked about during the campaign. To describe this phrasing, trump seemed to be fencing to which the Congress is appealing.

The White house had previously is another possible workaround, which would agree to suggesting Trump floated a deal with no wall dollars and other funding to pursue opportunities. Trump said he would Fund the military and build the wall, while White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump directed all of his Cabinet secretaries to look for viable means.
