Be interesting to see what this looks like, using government funding as leverage for negotiating bills is awful but Trump isn’t first to do it so I guess it’s just a new part of American life. Glad I work for a state government and not federal.

Trump can't do anything if the Congress is in agreement. What that means is key, though.
He can veto but Mr. Turtle has said over and over he won’t allow a vote on anything w/out Trump’s approval so I’d imagine the White House is signing off on this.

Yeah but is Trump in agreement?

"no president has ever kept the government open as long as Trump! If Obama kept the government open for a month they'd be giving him the Nobel Pulitzer. But this is historic. And they're still witch hunting me, if you can believe that. Nobody's ever seen anything like it! Jack the Ripper wasn't as presidentially harassed as me. Open!"

Democratic leaders will probably agree to only give Trump 10 billion dollars for a wall.

They'll describe it as holding firm against his demands.
You’re absolutely right, the same Democrats that forced Trump to cave after 35 days of a shutdown and wouldn’t give into his wall demands.

Congress can override vetoes.

Just tell him they built a wall and totally fulfilled one of his promises (without actually doing it or spending a dime on it).

For dark, is the suede that mows like a harvest.

On the real: Yeah we'll see. We have heard this kind of thing before, only to have Trump throw a tantrum because Coulter tells him he's a weenie.

Yeah and making Republicans openly rebuke Trump by overriding his veto is an entirely different animal. Would need almost 20 Republican Senators to override his veto and that’s a pretty tall fucking order given how lock step they’ve been w/ him to this point.

Hopefully no money goes towards the wall. I'm also curious if this agreement will last the year or if it will be a temporary agreement like the last one.

Number I'm seeing is 1.3 billion for an physical barrier.

Trump will sign that. He just needs something to big enough fir him to to stand in front of for campaign videos.
An actual physical barrier or just border security in general? Wasn't that the original number offered?

Trump will sign it he’s alsready pissed off his radio friends so they can’t exactly double dare hi again. He’s also been given a fake Rasmussen poll boost to placate his ego.

"Shelby said the agreement includes funding for physical barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, but declined to say how much the agreement is for or whether it's more than the $1.6 billion included in the Senate's initial Homeland Security bill."

Is how the hill is covering it right now.

is it cool to try and look extra ignorant or something
How quick everyone is to forget years and years of spineless governance. Democrats helped compromise the country to where it is. It'll take more than a month of hardball to get to where they need to be, especially with as many center leaning politicians as they have.

Lmao, couldn't they have gotten 25 billion last year? 5 billion was already a joke for a "wall", 1.3 billion is a fucking insult, hahaha.

But whatever, Trump will lick up this chump change for his barrier and claim it as a "win", and the Trumpanzees will seize in racist joy.

I don’t there are any specifics, the last word was a year long bill for agencies except DHS wich will be a short term cr to continue negotiations. So the only possibly effected employees would be those in DHS every time the clock runs out. There is no barrier money in this I don’t know who’s claiming so.

Pelosi, please. Please don't give Trump wall money three days after talking shit on the New Green Deal and on the same day you demanded an apology from Omar.
