A great News coming out of Washington says President Trump is willing to sign the federal government funding bill, but will also declare a National emergency to build the wall on our southern border. The President and Nancy Pelosi have been at loggerheads since December over funding for the border wall, leading to a month long Government shutdown, the longest in United States history.
In a report released 2 days ago, there has been a bipartisan agreement on the government spending bill, a necessary compromise deal to avoid another government shutdown, however, the bill has allocated just 1.4 billion dollars to the building of barriers or fence on the southern border rather than the requested $5.6 billion, and not even the former amount quoted by Nancy Pelosi during earlier negotiations, the amount then was believed to be $1.6 billion. There were earlier fears as to whether the President will agree to an amount far less than what he had demanded for, with reporters like Hannity calling the deal a garbage deal.
However, in a press briefing by Sarah Sanders on Thursday afternoon, the White House Press Secretary had announced the decision of the President to sign the bill and on top of that, declare a National Emergency; “President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action — including a national emergency — to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “The president is once again delivering on his promise to build the wall, protect the border, and secure our great country.”
This move by the President is sure to steer up opposition from the Democratic leader, with House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi saying shortly after that they were weighing up their options in order to decide what to do next. We await a formal announcement from President Trump much later. For the main time, the Leftist snowflakes should get ready to start melting soon.
