No Provision for Wall, No Spending
President Donald Trump Thursday hammered an extensive continuing resolution passed by the Senate earlier this week, calling it “ridiculous” and demanding to know where the money for border security will come from.
“I want to know, where is the money for Border Security and the WALL in this ridiculous Spending Bill, and where will it come from after the Midterms?” President Trump said in his tweet. “Dems are obstructing Law Enforcement and Border Security. REPUBLICANS MUST FINALLY GET TOUGH!”
The Presidents Tweet followed an appearance on cable TV by Senator David Perdue (R-GA), who told the program he voted against the “ridiculous” continuing resolution mainly because it does not “fund the President‘s priorities.”
“It’s ridiculous for 2 reasons,” said the Georgia Republican. “It is irresponsible to kick the can down the road past the fiscal year. And 2nd, and the most important reason, is it does not fund the President’s priorities.
“He was elected, very clearly, to grow the economy, rebalance our court system, and to secure border security. Right now, we have a historic level of Democrat obstruction.”
President Trump is “fed up” with the lack of border funding, said Senator Perdue, “and so am I.”
President Trump also quoted Senator Perdue in a pair of Tweets, after the Senator said, “’We cannot secure the Border because of the Democrats historic level of Obstruction. The Presidents fed up with this. His agenda is working. The economy is growing at twice the rate it did under Obama. We have nominated and confirmed 68 Federal Judges, 26 Court of Appeals Judges.’”
“’The thing that is lacking is that we cannot properly secure the Border because of the Democrats historic level of Obstruction,’” President Trump also quoted Seantor Perdue as saying in his TV interview.
