Trump wants $5.8 billion , for his wall , and the government can't agree to giving him that money . This funding was intentionally attached to the government's budget . Without a decision either way , Federal employees aren't getting paid . Do you think this will affect his chances at getting re-elected ?
I would hope it greatly influences peoples voting decisions against his favor. A new poll showed more than 40 percent were now in favor of the wall though. Although we all know the accuracy of polls! I think a wall is a waste of money regardless of who wants it but if I was more spiteful I would say just give it to him already and then people can see afterwards how worthless it was
The Pentagon got 700 Billion last year, and will get 716 billion this year for defense. The US gives away over 20 billion a year in foreign aid. And we can't get 5 billion for border security?
Its crazy - especially since those that say no voted for border security in the past.
As an outsider I am inclined to think that almost anything is possible there considering that DT was elected to office with scant regard for the bad publicity that preceded his election. I am sure that most Americans could think of better ways to spend $5.8 billion and the same probably holds true for money used to increase your ' Defence Budget '. Some people have a tendency to become power-drunk and consequently lose touch with reality and that eventually leads to their downfall.
"An analysis by USA Today published in June 2016 found that over the previous three decades, United States president Donald Trump and his businesses have been involved in 3,500 legal cases in U.S. federal courts and state court, an unprecedented number for a U.S. presidential candidate".
