Career politicians simply fail to see the real need for a wall on our southern border!
Paul Ryan is pushing the second largest spending bill in US history but the Omnibus only allows $1.8 billion on the Trump Border Wall and border security.
In January President Trump asked for $25 billion for his border wall project, but Paul Ryan’s Omnibus will only provide $641 million for border security and ZERO dollars for the Wall!
The deal provides $1.57 billion for “physical barriers and technology.” But, according to a Democratic source, just $641 million of that could go to barriers, and that would be restricted to see-through fences and levees; the funding could not be used to build a concrete wall. The vast majority — $1.3 billion — of the border security money is for technology, according to the Democratic source.
So President Donald Trump threatened Friday to veto the $1.3 trillion spending bill passed by Congress, citing concerns that the legislation does not include a solution for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or sufficient funding for a border wall.
“I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded,” Trump tweeted.

Yesterday the White House confirmed that President Donald Trump will sign the proposed Omnibus spending bill, White House officials confirmed on Thursday, even though the 2,232-page bill has yet to pass through Congress.
“Let’s cut right to the chase: Is the President going to sign the bill?” Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters at a briefing. “The answer is yes.”
The budget director made a practical case for the Republican-led budget process, even though he admitted that it was not “perfect.”
“This is how it works,” he said, adding that because of the 60 vote threshold, Democrats could get their “pound of flesh” of funding priorities.
Mulvaney said the $1.3 trillion spending bill funded the president’s budget priorities including a big boost in defense spending, opioids, school safety, workforce development. Infrastructure.
If President Trump vetoes this bill it will prove that he is the right man for the job and one of the reasons why American people decided to elect him!
