President Trump lashed-out at the Democrats on their recent proposal on border security. The comprehensive plan of the purposed bill has not been divulged, and only covers $1.3 billion, 55 new miles of fencing; declining the number of illegals Customs and Border Patrol, and ICE are permitted to apprehend.
President Trump statement:
“Am I happy at first glance? I just got to see it. The answer is no. I’m not. I’m not happy. But am I happy with where we’re going? I’m thrilled because we’re supplementing things and moving things around and we’re doing things that are fantastic, taking from far less important areas and the bottom line is we’re building a lot of walls. Right now we’re building a lot of walls. Do you think it’s easy? We’re building it in the face of tremendous obstruction and tremendous opposition from a small group of people.”
A consideration of a National Emergency Declaration will be provided as an alternative; If they cannot arrive at a proposal before the government will in some measures shutdown.
President Trump continued:
“It’s always nice to negotiate a little bit right? But I would hope that there wouldn’t be a shutdown. I’m extremely unhappy with what the Democrats have given us. It’s sad. They’re doing the country no favors. They’re hurting our country very badly. But we certainly don’t want to see a shutdown,”. “The bottom line is on the wall, we’re building a wall and we’re using other methods other than this and in addition to this, we have a lot of things going.”
“I don’t think you’re going to see a shutdown. I wouldn’t want to see a shutdown. If you did have it, it’s the Democrats fault. And I accepted the first one and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished because people learned during that shut down all about the problems coming in from the southern border. I accept it. I’ve always accepted it. But this one, I would never accept it if it happens, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. But this would be totally on the Democrats,”.
