Trump continues Twitter attack on McConnell

After Mexico rejected a chief part of Mr Trump's promise - that it would pay for the wall - the president said the United States would fund it initially and be repaid by its southern neighbour. "This was something the president campaigned on, he ran on it and he won on it". Suffice it to say that it's an expensive and potentially damaging solution in search of a problem.

Trump's threat comes a little more than a month before federal spending authority expires, requiring Congress to act to keep the government fully operating past September 30. "This doesn't mean joining Democrats as 'the Resistance.' But it does mean acting on their own to fulfill their legislative promises with or without the support of Mr. Trump".

In an interview last month, the top Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee signaled that the party considered blocking funding for the wall to be among its highest priorities in any spending negotiations with Republicans.

This is clearly draining the man who views himself as the ultimate deal maker.

Let's set aside for now the incredible political brinksmanship he's engaging in here by threatening a government shutdown that a majority of the public and a fair number of the lawmakers in his own party don't think is necessary.

"We are the party of the Union, and he is the most divisive president in our history".


Wall funding on a continuing resolution, this senior Democratic leadership aide said, was a "non-starter". The physical wall is Mr. Trump's personal preoccupation. "Now the obstructionist Democrats would like us not to do it. We have KKK. I got 'em all", he said.

The last federal government shutdown was a partial one in 2013, after lawmakers reached an impasse on a bill to finance the government when the Democratic-led Senate rejected measures passed by the Republican-led House that would have delayed key portions of the Affordable Care Act while extending funding for a few weeks.

".@POTUS' attempt to bully taxpayers into funding his immoral & expensive border wall is completely unacceptable", she said.

It's hard to overstate how massive a political disaster shutting down the federal government over funding (or lack thereof) for a border wall would be for Republicans. McConnell and Ryan for not having listened to his advice on the legislative strategy to adopt to meet the limit of the debt, avoiding a stalemate of the debate, he wrote Wednesday: "It could have been so simple now (it's) the bazaar!" It undoubtedly makes him feel better, but it doesn't really accomplish anything. After all, if we can't afford to have after-school programs that help feed hungry children, if we can't afford to give teachers a raise or firefighters and rebuild our infrastructure, how do we have money to build a wall that's easily climbable by anybody that wants to climb it? The only other option is to cave; Trump has frequently reversed his position before, and he would likely do it again.

Republican congressional leaders are projecting an air of calm.

However, senior Republicans were keen to quash that notion on Wednesday, with House of Representatives speaker Paul Ryan one of those to reject the idea.
