Trump digs in on the wall and the shutdown : NBC News

President Donald Trump told reporters after a Christmas Day phone call with troops that he won’t reopen the government until he gets the $5 billion in funding for his border wall.

As the government shutdown entered its fourth day and expected to stretch at least well into the week, the president said the U.S. must have “a wall, a fence, whatever they’d like to call it.”

Trump also insisted Tuesday that the wall — through renovations and new contracts — is actually already scheduled to be built and refurbished. He claimed that 115 miles of wall was set to be constructed in Texas, and that he would visit the border at the end of January for a groundbreaking ceremony.

  1. Trump said “It’s a disgrace, what’s happening in this country,” and for once I agree with Trump, it is disgrace what is happening within the US, but it is because of Trump and nothing else.

    Trump is no fit person to be President of America and eventually most of America will realise that. Hopefully it will not be too late to save America.
