Trump Still Proclaims "We Will Build The Wall"

President Trump sticks with his hard-line stance, insisting the US will build a physical wall on the Mexico border.

We Will Build the Wall

 

Trump Refers to Himself in the Second Tense

Resistance is Futile

Please consider President Trump, Day After Shutdown Ends, Says ‘We Will Build the Wall’.

President Trump showed no sign Saturday he was prepared to give up his insistence on a border wall, as negotiators prepare to begin talks aimed at keeping the government open and resolving a bitter impasse over funding for the wall.

Under the deal struck Friday, House and Senate negotiators appointed by congressional leadership will use the next three weeks to see if they can settle the dispute over funding for a wall along the Mexican border.

Since taking office in 2017, Mr. Trump has seen his leverage on the issue dwindle. Republicans, who controlled Congress for much of his presidency, lost the House majority in the midterm elections in November. Polling shows that voters largely blamed him for a shutdown that left about 800,000 federal workers without pay. Neither party has shown much appetite for another shutdown if Mr. Trump doesn’t get the wall money he wants in the new round of negotiations.

Not a Concession

With all due respect Mish, while not a fan of #Trump, I don't think he had much of a choice in this situation. The turmoil at the airports could have broken our economy and/or lead to a fatal air traffic disaster. What would you have had him do instead?
