Trump Still Proclaims "We Will Build the Wall" - Mish Talk

US President Donald Trump announcing the deal

In a city where perception begets influence, Pelosi clearly emerged with the upper hand.

So did Trump cave to the Democrats or is he playing possum?

On Friday she said the schedule remained undecided.

U.S. President Donald Trump (2R) argues about border security with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (R) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as Vice President Mike Pence sits nearby in the Oval Office on December 11, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Immediately ahead is the still unresolved question of how much money, if any, Congress gives him to build the wall he along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Trump in the Rose Garden on Friday.

"It may be perceived as such, but Lou, remember, this is for three weeks. When you look at your constituents back home and say you agree with the president that we have to do something about security at the southern border, are you telling the truth, or are just doing something that's politically expedient?'" James Lankford, R-Okla. He referred to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and used the acronym for president of the United States. Prospects for the legislation were unclear, but House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke favorably of them on "Meet the Press". He stood up for the American people. "Three weeks to negotiate", he said in a brief interview.

On Thursday night, Vice President Mike Pence and senior adviser Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law, presented Trump with four options, including declaring a national emergency right away, which would let him fund the building of border a wall without congressional approval but guaranteeing a court challenge.

Trump has faced criticism from some conservatives for backing down, for now, in the stalemate and on Friday he responded by saying that it was "in no way a concession". But in the interim, he endured numerous self-inflicted wounds.

As a result of the shutdown, government workers such as Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents, Federal Aviation Administration employees, and government food inspectors, among others, have worked without pay, INSIDER reported. "I happen to agree with the president on barriers at the border and border security as an important first step, but there might be a future president that I don't agree with that thinks something else is an emergency", Blunt said on "Fox News Sunday", adding that he hopes "the president doesn't have to go there".

Federal workers are owed about $6 billion in back pay, according to a study released last week.

The Trump administration asked federal department heads to reopen offices in a "prompt and orderly manner" and said furloughed employees can return to work.

As a candidate, Trump pledged to build the wall, with Mexico paying for it. Mexico refused and now Trump wants US taxpayers to pay for the barrier, which he sees as key to curbing illegal immigration and illegal drug flows into the country.

History shows that over the past quarter-century, voters generally don't punish candidates for shutdowns.

The Democrats took a beating in the November elections that year.

Despite focusing much of the morning on illegal immigration - and using a video from a local TV station to tout his slogan "Build a Wall & Crime Will Fall" - he mentioned a couple of other subjects including North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and Holocaust Memorial Day.
