ALERT: Congress Just Openly Defied Trump. He is NOT Happy

By

So many Americans voted for Donald Trump because he promised to be a different kind of president. He promised to get done the things no other president could.

The trouble is that Congress has been making it difficult for Trump to keep his word. And now, they’re openly defying him on one promise the American people most wanted fulfilled – a wall along the border with Mexico.

It’s not that Trump hasn’t been trying to accomplish that goal. He has.

But the latest word from Capitol Hill is that Trump won’t get the funding he needs to build the wall.

From Breitbart:

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) is signaling that members of the House Freedom Caucus, which he chairs, are willing to pass a Continuing Resolution to temporarily fund the federal government and avoid a government shutdown, even if it does not include funding for a wall on the U.S. southern border.

“In talking to a number of my members, if there was a vote for a continuing resolution next week that did not include border wall funding, the majority of those members would be supportive of that,” Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told ABC News‘ Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein on the “Powerhouse Politics” podcast.

Just last week, Trump warned that he was ready to let the government shut down until Congress agreed to fund the wall.

He understood that passing even a temporary budget that didn’t include that funding would give his opponents in Congress the opportunity to stall the motion indefinitely.

During a press conference with the visiting president of Finland, Trump said:

“We need the wall very badly. The wall will stop much of the drugs from pouring into this country and poisoning our youth.”
