Trump Will Sign Border Deal To Avoid A Shutdown

President Donald Trump is planning to sign the bipartisan spending package Congress has agreed upon regarding border security according to a new report from CNN.

The report says that Trump will sign a new bipartisan deal that will allocate $1.375 billion for a border barrier — short of the more than $5 billion he demanded — according to two confidential sources in the White House.

This move will allow the country to avoid another possible government shutdown on Friday. Trump, however, said yesterday that he was “not happy” with the deal agreed to by legislators given “the little funding it allocates for his wall.”

CNN’s New Day tweeted this morning:

Pres. Trump intends to sign border security deal to avoid another government shutdown, according to sources who have spoken with Trump.”
“If the President is saying this is some giant, big, long concrete wall, that is not the case,” @RepCheri Bustos says.”

CNN’s Dana Bash broke down the report on New Day, saying Trump is complaining about Congress not doing its job, but he’ll sign the proposal begrudgingly if it’ll prevent a second shutdown. She also reported that Trump is still considering an executive order or similar measure to get the funding he wants in his own way. Bash said:

“The president is seriously considering — maybe more than seriously considering — executive action of some sort using pots of money he knows exist in the Department of Homeland Security, the Pentagon, maybe even go as far as a national emergency which does cause other issues politically with his own base in Congress. But the point is he wants to keep the political fight going, and that’s not going to change.”

As we reported yesterday, the deal is a loss for Trump. His negotiations for border wall funding have failed. He is being owned by Nancy Pelosi, and that fact that he is being forced to sign deal he doesn’t like is evidence of that. Sean Hannity and his fellow right-wing media commentators will be mad at Trump now, but at the end of the day nobody really cares what they think.
