Pelosi: Funding for Trump's border wall is a non-starter
Future speaker of the House speaks
Nancy Pelosi, the future Speaker of the House, is on the wires saying:
The Senate passed a spending bill last night. The House is still expected to approve a short term extension to February (sans wall funding). The question is will the President sign it (of course he will).
- funding for border wall is a nonstarter
- Will consider supporting a short-term spending bill that includes a disaster funding
An extension however, would prolong the wall debate into 2019 when the House will be controlled by the Democrats.
Pres. Trump tweeted earlier today:
There is never a dull moment when politics is involved.
