Why did Trump's own budget position switch on the wall?  He asked for and received 1.6 bil in december

Why did the repubs switch on the wall?

Trump went all in on the "$5.7b" wall to cause the shutdown hoping it would buy him time and slow the investigation

Already posted this the other day.

Down payment will be his other key talking point.  No matter how much money democrats appropriate for border security, Trump will promise his sheep that more is coming.

The down payment will be a good start until trade forces Mexico to pick up the tab!

Wishful thinking. Border Patrol recommends a wall on certain portions of the border and Trump will continue to hold the line to get funding for what Border Patrol recommends. Greater chance he declares Emergency Powers than signs a deal with no wall.

Haha how'd that go for you?

Madam Speaker will just send over a clean CR with funding levels the same as last year.

Democrats need to take the win and strike a deal. They'll get pummeled like Trump if there's another shutdown. 

Boy, talking about reading it wrong, for both sides. You can't be much more wrong.

Congress appears to have an agreement. 

 

 

more money for border security, including border barriers, no wall. I think this is a happy compromise for both sides. 

Sign it, declare an emergency, and reallocate funds as necessary to complete the border security package as per the recommendations from DHS. Done and done.
