Recently, the White House suggested that President Donald Trump could back off from his demand for funding $5 Billion to his planned US-Mexico border wall in a year-end expenditure bill. Trump’s push for the money has worried a partial administration shutdown while funding for seven bureaus that lapsed. In the past week, the president stated he would be “pleased” to close down some parts of the government above border security.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders—White House’s Press Secretary—told to Fox News, “We have additional methods to get that $5 Billion and would work with Congress for doing so.” She further added that the Trump government could contribute $1.6 Billion funding in border security as planned by Senate Democrats, as long as it can “combine with other funding capital” to reach $5 Billion. She stated that “at last, we do not want to close down the administration. We hope to close down the U.S.-Mexico border.” Chuck Schumer (Senate Minority Leader) and Nancy Pelosi (House Minority Leader) have cast the possible lapse in the grant as the “Trump shutdown.” Trump has frequently threatened to oblige a shutdown if he cannot get money for the wall.
Speaking of the US-Mexico border wall, thousands of armed forces reportedly are planned to remain on the border as Trump’s innovative military deployment comes to a close. A few days before the midterm elections, Trump publicized the deployment of dynamic duty troops to stop caravans of migrants to the southern border making their way via Mexico. Lately, that original border plan came to a close, but thousands of the U.S. troops will stay for a reduced and extended mission in support of the U.S. CBP (Customs and Border Protection) scheduled to last throughout January 2019.
