White House Softens $5B Demand from Dems for Border Wall

With only 3 days left to fund the government, the White House is looking to play nice.

Border Wall

With only a few scant days left to fund the government, the Trump administration has been at odds with congressional democrats over a predictable and longstanding sticking point.

Namely, President Trump “big, beautiful” wall for our southern border.

The wall itself has become a symbol of the Trump presidency in many ways, with the businessman storming onto the political scene by promising the American people that he would take border control seriously.  The soon-to-be President would rave about this national security issue during the televised debates, often to enthusiastic applause, signaling his coming win in November of 2016.

Today the wall has become the item on which the looming government shutdown could hinge.  Trump has stood steady and stern on the issue as of late, nearly eliciting glee when admitting that he’d not regret bringing DC to a halt in order to secure the border.

The White House, however, has seemingly backed off a bit…

The White House suggested Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s could back down from his demand for $5 billion to fund his proposed border wall in a year-end spending bill.

Trump’s push for the money has threatened a partial government shutdown when funding for seven agencies lapses after midnight Friday. Last week, the president said he would be “proud” to close parts of the government over border security.

“We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion that we’ll work with Congress,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Fox News on Tuesday morning. She added that the Trump administration could support $1.6 billion in border security funding proposed by Democrats, as long as it can “couple that with other funding resources” to get to $5 billion.

Then came the soundbite.

She added that “at the end of the day, we don’t want to shut down the government. We want to shut down the border.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have cast the potential lapse in funding as the “Trump shutdown.” When Pelosi goaded Trump into an Oval Office fracas last week, the characterization appeared to irritate the president.

With a shutdown looming should no action be taken by Friday, time is certainly of the essence in the Beltway.

She also failed to win her gubernatorial race against Brian Kemp in Georgia last November, though she still has yet to actually concede.

Now, Abrams is considering a run for president in 2020.

Can’t be Kemp, but can take down Trump, huh?

What sorcery is this?

From CNN:

Stacey Abrams, a rising star in the Democratic Party, said Monday it was possible she could seek her party’s presidential nomination next year.

Abrams’ comment came after an interview at the South by Southwest conference in Texas, where Abrams reportedly said she previously thought 2028 would be the earliest she could run for president, but over Twitter, she clarified: “Now 2020 is definitely on the table.”

About that pesky ol’ flag burning, via The Hill:

A decades-old news article about Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) burning the state flag, which at the time included the Confederate battle flag, resurfaced on Monday.

Abrams stood on the steps of the Georgia Capitol in 1992 and burned the Georgia state flag which was viewed as a symbol of white supremacy due to its Confederate design, The New York Times reported.

Does Abrams not know that illegals can’t vote?

Abrams once voted to confiscate guns. She says she did it just to “start a conversation.”

Will anyone believe that reason?

And “start a conversation” about what, exactly?

Actually banning guns, of course.

WATCH:

Check out what Black Panthers, who chanted “black power,” did for Abrams…

Do these Black Panthers know Abrams wants to confiscate their guns?

Will Abrams condemn the Black Panthers for carrying?

Are her days numbered?

Judge Jeanine Pirro saw her show canceled on Saturday night after comments she made about freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN).

Many millions of Americans, including President Trump, were not pleased.

Now, Fox News has delivered another blow to Pirro.

They’ve already canceled her show for NEXT Saturday, too.

In fact, it looks like Pirro might’ve been suspended.

Check out the pictures below showing Fox News’s lineup. Notice there’s nothing about Pirro on Saturday, 3/23?

About the suspension:

—@brianstelter reports, per a source, that Fox News suspended @JudgeJeanine for two weeks following her comments on @IlhanMN. (Hence why she wasn’t on air last night.)

President Trump commented on Fox News pulling Pirro this past Saturday:

Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox …..

….must stay strong and fight back with vigor. Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die! Stay true….

….to the people that got you there. Keep fighting for Tucker, and fight hard for @JudgeJeanine. Your competitors are jealous – they all want what you’ve got – NUMBER ONE. Don’t hand it to them on a silver platter. They can’t beat you, you can only beat yourselves!

Here’s what Pirro said about Omar that has some people up in arms…

WATCH:

From Variety:

Fox News Channel replaced tonight’s broadcast of Jeanine Pirro’s weekly program with a repeat episode of its documentary series “Scandalous,” just days after the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news network said it condemned remarks the outspoken host made about Minnesota Democrat Ihan Omar.

[…]

During her broadcast last Saturday, Pirro, a former New York prosecutor, suggested Omar, a Democractic representative, did not respect the law set down by the Constitution of the United States. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?” Pirro asked.

Was what Pirro said all that bad?

Was there any TRUTH to what Pirro said?

After all, Omar hasn’t exactly been the most “America first” politician the nation has elected, recently.

We’ll just have to wait and see what this means for the judge’s future at the network.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) rushed to the defense of the embattled Omar after she tweeted an anti-Semitic remark.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:

Unlike this President, Rep. @IlhanMN demonstrated a capacity to acknowledge pain & apologize, use the opportunity to learn abt history of antisemitism,+grow from it while clarifying her stance.

I’m also inspired by Jewish leadership who brought her in, not push her out, to heal.

AOC is “proud” of Omar:

Lots of people here proclaiming to be “woke” trying to police communities on what they are/aren’t allowed to be upset by.

I’m proud @IlhanMN raised the issue of lobbyist 💰 in politics & equally proud of her sensitivity to communities. Both are possible.

Omar showed no shame after responding to a series of tweets from journalist Glenn Greenwald.

LOOK:

Enter Omar with the anti-Semitic stereotype:

If not immediately obvious, here’s the problem with her tweet:

“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Rep. Omar said, a reference to Jewish people and money. A typical antisemitic stereotype.

Omar then retweeted a “hook-nosed” tweet:
