Mexico border wall may not be as effective as Trump hopes

DNC Slams Trump's 'Empty Promises on Border Wall' Trump's lack of progress on border wall under fire… from Democrats

Before the call, he tweeted a pledge to hold Mexico to his campaign promise that the country will foot the bill for the barrier it will share at the border with the United States.

The government's current funding is set to expire on October 1st. Hard-line conservative nationalists such as Stephen K. Bannon, the chief strategist ousted from the White House last week, have counseled the president to take a hard line on wall funding to buck up his political base after the embarrassing defeat of legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

President Trump made the threat during a speech at a Make America Great Again rally in Phoenix, Arizona.

Now that reporters are pointing out that obvious change in rhetoric, the best the White House can muster is the delicious double negative that Trump hasn't not said Mexico is paying for the wall. At the same time, according to the report, he said, "If you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I can not live with that". Mexican officials, in no uncertain terms, have rejected Trump's absurd demand that Mexico pay for it. It also contains $1.6 billion for the construction of a physical wall along the southern border.

Now the president says that unless there's funding for the border wall in whatever budget measure Congress passes, he won't sign it. And he's going to make sure that - and has definite plans to make sure that it gets built. Although Republicans are expected to retain a majority in the House, owing in part to favourable congressional redistricting, historical trends dictate that an unpopular president's own party usually suffers big midterm losses in the House.

If the two issues are combined, that would compound the economic consequences of a stand-off.


Even though a shutdown appears unlikely with the GOP in control of both chambers of Congress, Republicans believe they would suffer severe repercussions at the ballot box in 2018 if the government were forced to close its doors.

President Trump has had a fractious relationship with Republican leaders which stretches back to his early days in the party's primaries in the lead-up to the 2016 election. The White House has been reportedly backing challengers to their seats.

After his tweets, the rate on Treasury bills maturing October 12 jumped by as much as 5 basis points, the largest intraday move since March.

Scenario 5: The government shuts down because Congress approves a spending bill without wall funding and Trump makes good on his threat. Trump's budget director, Mick Mulvaney (a former Freedom Caucus member), has suggested a debt ceiling raise should come with spending cuts.

Ryan, who answered questions Thursday from employees at Boeing in Everett, Washington, said the debt ceiling will be raised.

"I don't think a government shutdown is necessary and I don't think most people want to see a government shutdown, ourselves included", the Wisconsin Republican said in a news conference at Intel Corp.'s office in Portland, Ore. In a government shutdown, millions of American families pay the price.
