President Trump: No Money for Wall, No Signature on Bill to Fund Government

House Democrats plan to vote on package later this week
President Donald Trump on Monday evening signaled he would not sign an omnibus spending package House Democrats plan to bring to the floor later this week because it omits dollars for his proposed southern border barrier.
“The Democrats will probably submit a Bill, being cute as always, which gives everything away but gives NOTHING to Border Security, namely the Wall. You see, without the Wall there can be no Border Security — the Tech “stuff” is just, by comparison, meaningless bells & whistles,” he tweeted.
The incoming House Democratic majority plans to vote on a package that would fully fund all other currently shuttered agencies for the remainder of the fiscal year and reopen the Department of Homeland Security until early February — but with no new dollars for a border barrier.

Good. Even better if Trump won't play ball. Congress should bypass him on everything anyway. He's unhinged, unreliable, so make him irrelevant.

Pass a CR, override the veto, and let's all move on. The best thing congress can do at this point is marginalize Trump. No more kissing up to the crazy uncle.
