Skip to comments.Pelosi, Schumer to meet with Trump, offer $1.3 billion for border as shutdown looms

Democratic leaders plan to offer President Trump $1.3 billion in funding for a border fence when they meet Tuesday at the White House, a bid that falls far short of the $5 billion Trump is demanding to fund a border wall.
Democrats, Republicans and the White House have until Dec. 21 to reach a budget deal if they are to avert a partial government shutdown, but talks are deadlocked over funding for the wall.
As House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) prepare for the Tuesday morning, Democrats and Trump are, if anything, moving further apart....

Any shutdown is 100% on the Democrats. No deal. President Trump should just get what he wants. End of story.
We’ve only been waiting since 1986 for border security.........
You know they will shut it off once the new Congress is seated. Maybe he can get them up to 3 billion— He’s got to come to the American people if he gets no cooperation. 2Yrs may be too late illegals are ready to crash.
it’s 700 miles.
I’ll build a mile of it personally for a million.
20 Billion and their resignations and admissions to treason
would be a reasonable start?
“Democratic leaders plan to offer President Trump $1.3 billion”
And all this time I thought Republicans were in charge of both houses, at least for the next month.
So, crumbs basically
Yup, we’ll need at least that much.
Why is it that other govt projects are green lighted even without spending limits? Democrats have absolutely no intention of allowing any wall that would seal out their future voters.
They’re playing a rope-a-dope game here. This is probably the most important fight of our lifetimes, and we better not lose it.
I hate the voters who put the absolutely insane democrats back in power in the house. How in the world can they be this stupid?
Landmines. Lots of them
How in the world can they be this stupid?
1. Media (including Fox News) spouting anti-Trump disinformation 24/7.
2. Our “educational” system being taken over by leftists for the past few decades.
These democrats have ruined our country. It’s 1 step forward and 30 steps backward, Let’s face it. . .it all points of the end times. Read Daniel and Revelation . . .not to mention Jesus’ own words in Matthew . . .we know the chain of events. Maybe tomorrow or several years from now but God maps it all out how it goes down. Some, even pastors, haven’t taken the time to check it out. Besides the Book of Revelation in the first chapter says a blessing awaits those who read it.
The Donald should ask them if they would like to see Vince Foster’s rug while they are there.
Give the 1st Special Operations Group a 1/4 mile free fire zone the length of the border. Couple times of hearing that Burp from Spectre and I’ll guarantee it would be as effective as a wall.
So much for the wall.
What do they want in return a Free Hand to Crash and Burn the US ?
Why dont democrats pull a BJ Clinton and fully fund the border wall. Claim victory for saving the USA, shit on the Republicans. Funny but they can do it.
It would be funny as hell to see the eGOP neutered while Nancy and Chuckie take credit for ensuring USA safety while enacting some meaningless asylum rule.
...if I were Trump, I would cancel the meeting pending a change in attitude of the Dems and I would just full expect and plan to “shut er down”... ..
...a serious shut down is long past due!
