On Friday President Trump has tweeted up a storm and you can see that he wants the wall. He is demanding that if Democrats do not give up the funds for the barrier, he will “close the Southern border entirely”

Trump also warning that he will cut aid to Central American countries and pull back on trade with Mexico.

The partial government shutdown is going into its second week. The closures began last Saturday after Republicans and Democrats were unable to agree on a funding package that would keep the government open and fund Trump’s promised border wall.

Trump has demanded $5 billion for the barrier that would be slotted and act as a wall but one could see through it.

Democrats have refused Trump the money and are offering $1.3 billion for general border security.

We seem to be between a rock and a hard place with Congress at this point. Trump has even suggested pulling back on the recently renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which now goes by the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

Trump is having his own tweet storm and tweeted:

Trump has threatened to shut down the border before but it never came about.  This is not the first time he threatened to cut aid to countries that assist, or do nothing to stop, the caravans.

Earlier this month, the U.S. pledged a total of $10.6 billion in aid and investment for Central America and southern Mexico. This is a part of a push to promote better security and job opportunities so that Central Americans and Mexicans will not want to come into the U.S.

On Friday Trump’s incoming acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, declared Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer is interested in a deal but Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi is preventing it.

Mulvaney said on TV, “We don’t think they will [negotiate] until after the new Congress is sworn in.”

Pelosi has denied claims that they haven’t provided a counteroffer.

Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff said, “Democrats have offered Republicans three options to re-open government that all include funding for strong, sensible, and effective border security but not the President’s immoral, ineffective and expensive wall. With the House Majority, Democrats will act swiftly to end the Trump Shutdown, and will fight for a strategic, robust national security policy, including strong and smart border security, and strong support for our servicemembers and veterans.”

Why do I not believe that Pelosi is using this to secure herself as Speaker of the House?

That would make Pelosi the second in line if God forbid, anything happened to our president. That is a very scary thought.
