President Donald Trump’s promised border wall continues to be a problem for the Republicans. On Friday, Trump signed a budget extension that will avert a government shutdown through Dec. 21. But he is threatening to let a government shutdown happen if Democrats do not allot $5 billion for his border wall.
Democrats do not seem likely to cave on the issue. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who will undoubtedly be confirmed as House Speaker in January, dubbed the border as “immoral,” “ineffective” and “expensive” on Dec. 6 at a press conference. Pelosi also rightfully said that President Trump promised Mexico would pay for the wall.
