Trump repeats making Mexico pay for wall as he seeks funding

During a rally in Arizona last week, Trump threatened to force a government shutdown if Congress doesn't include funding for the wall in the next spending bill.

McConnell likewise said earlier in the week that there was "zero chance, no chance, we won't raise the debt ceiling". Rather than standing by the president, they should consider themselves liberated and offer a constructive, humane and appealing alternative to him.

COSTA: President Trump believes - and this is a view shared by most congressional Republicans - that the president has a grip over the Republican base.

Mr. Trump ran on building the wall and was elected president while pledging to build the wall, and he wasn't going to back down, said Mrs. Sanders.

Republicans in Congress were stunned on Thursday with Donald Trump's tweets suggesting that a vote to raise the debt ceiling should be tied to a veterans benefits bill. Both Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi have invited Trump to take a long walk off a short pier.

One looming deadline will be avoiding a government shutdown. Republicans are taking the same 50-vote approach to the tax reform push they're planning for the fall. So what is President Trump's calculus here?

"I can not believe the Republicans are extending the debt ceiling - I am a Republican & I am embarrassed", he said at the time. If McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., can convince two-thirds of each of their chambers that keeping the government open is more important than funding the border wall, they could overcome the veto and keep the government open.


Mexico's foreign minister, Luis Videgaray, said August 23 that NAFTA talks are continuing and if Trump really wanted to break up the pact, he would have done so already. A lot of them were for two or three days; monthlong shutdowns in 1996 and 2013 saw up to 800,000 federal employees furloughed, closed national parks and museums and delayed payments of some military and veterans benefits.

What was once an uneasy governing alliance has curdled into a feud of mutual resentment and sometimes outright hostility, complicated by the position of McConnell's wife, Elaine L. Chao, in Trump's Cabinet, according to more than a dozen people briefed on their imperiled partnership.

The more Republican leaders try to salvage their agenda - and their reputations - from the shoot-from-the-lip presidency of Donald Trump, the deeper the hole gets. But when it comes to Republican voters, the president remains strong.

But Trump's attacks on Ryan and McConnell have raised questions about whether the passage of debt-ceiling legislation will be as smooth as congressional leaders hope.

It's clear the wall is the one priority Trump is willing to go to the mat for, says Trent Duffy, former deputy press secretary to President George W. Bush.

That could imperil Republican strength in the Senate, Wolfensberger warns, as "you might end up with a weaker, untested opponent" besting Flake or Heller in a primary, only to "get knocked out" by a Democrat in a general election. There was a mating dance and a conclusion. Mexican officials, in no uncertain terms, have rejected Trump's absurd demand that Mexico pay for it.

The next item on the GOP agenda is overhauling the tax code, while simultaneously passing a budget and raising the debt ceiling.
