US President Donald Trump is fighting more for the price of a partial Government shutdown for his prestige project of a border wall with Mexico.
He renewed on Sunday his threat and, if necessary, to the National declare a state of emergency, and so the wall was built against the Parliament. “It may be that I exclamations a National emergency, it depends on what happens in the next few days,” said the President.
at the same time, he returned the request to build a concrete wall, apparently for good. “It’s a steel will be limit-and that will give us great strength,” Trump said on Sunday. A steel fence was also less conspicuous than a concrete wall, but at the same time is even more stable. His chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, said that the Move away from the concrete was the opposite to come up Trumps on the Democrats.
“99 percent of our illegal border crossings,” wrote Trump on Sunday on Twitter. The Democrats hold the construction of a wall to “Think of yesterday”, and refuse the recording of the Trump of the required $ 5.6 billion, in a budget act. The standstill, the part of the government business, lame, lasts now for more than two weeks.
The Chairman of the house of representatives, Nancy Pelosi, had several times explained, Democrats would not vote for it, money for the construction of a wall in the household. The Democrats have since 3. January, the majority in the house of representatives. Also for the offer of a steel fence instead of a wall, no advocates could be found for the Democrats.
Trump self-led on Sunday to the country residence Camp David in Washington with officials of the White house talks. In addition to the construction of the wall it will go also to the trade dispute with China, as well as the Situation in North Korea. The acting chief of staff, Mulvaney had invited the staff to a weekend getaway.
Because of the partial Government shutdown that lasts for more than two weeks, to currently hundreds of thousands of government servants without immediate payment for work or had to take a forced vacation. Museums and national parks are closed. Millions of Americans need to be longer than hoped for wait for tax refunds, because the IRS is concerned.
The Democrats started on Sunday, once again a legislative initiative in the house of representatives to bring at least first parts of the frozen government action. The be given any great opportunities. Trump wants no part of-agreement with no guarantees for the construction of the wall. For this strategy, he has the backing of his Republicans in the Senate, the second chamber of the Parliament.
Meanwhile, the effects of the shutdown were visible. Some of the national parks, meanwhile, have big problems with garbage collection, in the mountains of the Rocky Mountains, about the lack of winter service. Indigenous people complained that reserves are particularly affected, where the Federal government was a part of the educational offer and the food of funded.
