closevideo what will it take for the border wall critic to recognize that we need the wall to build?
In the middle of a controversial battle with the Democrats over a possible government shutdown and the funding of border security, President of the Trump ways on Friday she tweeted a picture of the proposed wall on the US-Mexican border.
“The construction of our steel-plate barrier, which is completely effective, while at the same time, beautiful!”, the President of the Commission wrote in a caption for a picture of what it is to be a large steel picket styled fence rail.
The tweet from trump came in the midst of a debate on the state funding. The Senate was scrambling to a spending package with billions in funding for a border wall, as Trump made it clear that it is a “good chance” for a partial government shutdown at midnight.
It was not immediately clear how much money would be allocated for border security.
“The Democrats, not to say loud and clear that you want to build a Concrete wall – but we do not build the concrete wall that we build, artistically designed steel slats, so that you can easily see through it,” Trump tweeted earlier this week.
“It will be beautiful, and, at the same time, give our country the security that our citizens deserve,” he continued. “It goes quickly, and save us BILLIONS of dollars per month once it’s ready!”
Trump had demanded $ 5 billion in funding for the wall. Democrats returned with a $1.3 billion counter-offer – with the condition that it was for fencing, and not a wall.
