President Trump has just thrown the government funding deal into doubt.
He says he won’t move further without “border security”:
Sarah Sanders released a statement:
“The president is having a meeting with Republican House members at noon today. At this moment, the president does not want to go further without border security, which includes steel slats or a wall. The president is continuing to weigh his options.”
Maybe he’s seen the GoFundMe that’s raised over $4 million in 3 days to fund the wall. He realizes this is very important to more Americans than he thought.
The Go Fund me is just over $4.8 million right now!
The GoFundMe is called “We The People Will Fund The Wall”.
A screenshot from the page shows the total right now…Shocking!
Could the power of the people turn the tide on the border wall funding?
We smell a veto! We hope we’re right on this.
Matt Schlapp thinks we’re right:
All I want for Christmas is…a veto yes, a veto yes! Fight

He tweeted a few hours ago:
When I begrudgingly signed the Omnibus Bill, I was promised the Wall and Border Security by leadership. Would be done by end of year (NOW). It didn’t happen! We foolishly fight for Border Security for other countries – but not for our beloved U.S.A. Not good!

Key Republicans have said today they are ready to fight for the wall funding.
Perhaps they see that the will of the American people is to build a wall and know they’ll have this last-ditch effort before Democrats take over the House.
