[Ed. – That’ll be interesting. There are enough Trump voters to retire most if not all of the anti-wall GOP pols up for election in 2018 — whatever result that brings. If the old-school Republicans don’t think Trump voters will do it, they really haven’t understood any of this. Of course, the left-wing media may just be stirring the pot here.]
Congressional Republicans might deliver some more bad news for President Donald Trump, fresh off their embarrassing failure to scrap Obamacare: No new money is coming to build his wall.
Trump hoped to jump-start construction of a massive wall on the U.S.-Mexico border with money in a must-pass government funding bill. But Democratic leaders are vowing to block any legislation that includes a single penny for the wall.
With the GOP consumed by its own divisions, the White House and Hill Republicans will have to rely on Democratic votes to avoid a government shutdown next month in what would be another disaster for Trump’s fledgling presidency.
Republican leaders, wary of this, are considering a plan that would not directly tie the border wall money to the April 28 government funding deadline.
