[Ed. – GOP has already squandered numerous chances.]
Building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border was Donald Trump’s premier campaign promise, and he is running out of chances to keep it.
Trump has been president for nearly a year and a half, and has not yet won anywhere near the funding needed to build the wall along the 1,000 or so miles of border that he pledged to voters. Now, there are two Republican immigration bills in the House, each of which would provide around $25 billion for the wall, and Trump has blown them both off, saying he’d rather try again after November’s midterm elections.
“Republicans should stop wasting their time on immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November,” Trump tweeted Friday. “Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solve this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!”
