An Oval Office meeting with President Trump, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and presumptive incoming speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi Tuesday spiraled out of control — in Pelosi's words — over funding the border.

With a potential government shutdown looming less than two weeks away, Pelosi told Mr. Trump, "you will not win" on the border wall. The president demanded border wall funding — and said he's not afraid the shut down the government over it.

No surprise here. Another shutdown will be no big deal compared to previous shutdowns. I believe 75% of the budget has already been allocated.

I don't think Trump can get away with having the military build the wall without fund specifically appropriated for it. As much as I would like to see him try, should it come to that, I think there would be too much opposition from Congress - from both sides of the "aisle."

Pelosi is SUCH a piece of crap.

I hope we see a lot of this over the next 2 years.

Plus- she’s not in charge yet... why does she matter?

No, but he can lay a minefield and then say "they come out when you fund the wall".

Good. Shut it down. Shut the whole thing down. Schumer blinked once, he’ll blink again. He was more to lose.

Exactly. This is a winning issue for Trump. He’s fulfilling a promise that helped to elect him.

People want border security, especially after seeing the caravan and all its problems.

Trump learned his lesson on meeting with those snakes behind closed doors. I don’t recall the exact issue, but Durbin burned him by misrepresenting what was said.

The Democrats are desperate to get millions of more illegal voters before 2020.

Hold the vote now. Make Rino Ryan and the rest of his pals vote against the wall before they go home for good. What reason, other than their cowardice, is there to not vote on it now?

Shut down the government. Never pay the “workers” for time off...they are usually given a paid vacay. Many governmeent “workers” are a complete waste of money.

Shut down permanently except for delivering the mail (1.8.7), one of the very few domestic policy powers that the Founding States actually gave to the feds.

Also, off topic, patriots are encouraged to watch Dan Borgino’s excellent 37 min video (associated book). The video helps to flesh out the alleged Mueller conspiracy against Pres. Trump.

“I don’t think Trump can get away with having the military build the wall “

Maybe not but the Military can be used to secure the border by other means short of a permanent physical wall. The short term goal is stop the invasion now.

I believe Trump could declare the wall a national security measure and use military and homeland security funds. I’m sure that would be fought by the illegal lovers on both sides, but it would be interesting to see who and how that would turn out.

Pence says nothing and let's Trump have to fight 2 against 1. Good going, Mike.
