White House insists border wall will be built ‘with or without Democrats’

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

When President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he had agreed to a three-week deal to end the month-long partial government shutdown, he was besieged by critical voices from both sides of the political aisle, as gloating Democrats crowed and dismayed Republicans lamented that he had “caved” on the border wall.

But The Hill reported that the White House wasted little time in firing back against the bipartisan criticism: the Trump administration has maintained that a border wall is still very much a priority, and it will be built “with or without the Democrats.”

Shutdown showdown comes to a close

Trump doubled down on that sentiment on Saturday, writing on Twitter that this was “in no way a concession.”

Indeed, the president made clear in his Friday announcement that it was his concern for federal workers that compelled him to agree to the temporary deal that would provide time — and remove all previously stated Democratic excuses — for actual negotiations on border security funding to proceed.

Trump also said multiple times that he retains the right to declare a national emergency over border security.

Doing so would authorize the president to shift around previously appropriated funds in order to construct necessary border barriers without any additional authorization from Congress.

Wall will be built, one way or another

But it doesn’t seem that a national emergency is Trump’s preferred wall-building method. He said on Twitter on Sunday that he plans to begin negotiating with Dems “immediately.”

In a tweet of her own Friday evening, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also encouraged Democrats to negotiate with the president over border security.

Of course, it remains to be seen if Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, will actually engage in good-faith negotiations over the next three weeks — but if they want to garner liberal policy wins (like a permanent solution to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program) they ought to sit down and hash it out.

Like it or not, a wall is going to be built one way or another, with or without their input.
