Presumably. But, as I said, weak, feckless, status quo Republicans, many of whom quietly work against Trump because he is not from the approved Establishment, (the then Speaker of the House, for example) didn't put it in there.Aussie wrote:So....a joint sitting of the House and The Senate would have delivered Donald's wall.....pre mid-Terms.SethBullock wrote:Before the midterms there were more Republicans.

One thing I think you guys should understand is that Trump was not supported by the Washington Republican Establishment when he ran for president. He was supported by rank and file ordinary citizen-Republicans and Independents like myself. The rejection of "status quo Establishment" Republicans for the nomination was a rebellion by the rank and file against the entire Washington Republican Establishment. And so it is unsurprising to me that the Republicans didn't try to push through border barrier funding. As I have said before, the Republicans and Democrats had colluded together for decades, with a wink and a nod, with their various deceptions and hypocrisy, to keep the border open and insecure.
Trump warned them almost a year ago.
His political enemies are not just Democrats.
