Several days ago, there were reports that negotiations were leading to border security legislation, which would include some amount of funding for a barrier on the United States/Mexico border.
Those negotiations now seem to be falling apart.
Here is President Trump’s view of why, in three tweets:
I don’t think the Dems on the Border Committee are being allowed by their leaders to make a deal. They are offering very little money for the desperately needed Border Wall & now, out of the blue, want a cap on convicted violent felons to be held in detention!
It was a very bad week for the Democrats, with the GREAT economic numbers, The Virginia disaster and the State of the Union address. Now, with the terrible offers being made by them to the Border Committee, I actually believe they want a Shutdown. They want a new subject!
Does President Trump make good points? Are his conclusions valid?
