Trump forgets he was elected for one reason: Without qualification, he guaranteed desperate Americans that he would build The Wall.

3/22/18, "It's all Congress's fault! White House says it can only build 33 miles of new border barriers because Democrats refuse to give them money for the whole wall Trump promised," Daily Mail, David Martosko

3/22/18, "Omnibus Bill Includes Specific Clause Barring Funding for Donald Trump ‘Wall’," Breitbart, Charlie Spiering 

"The 2,232 page Omnibus bill includes a specific clause barring funding for a wall on the southern border that mirrors the new prototypes already there. The bill reads: 

"The amounts designated in subsection (a)(2) through (a)(4) shall only be available for operationally effective designs deployed as of the date of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017, (Public Law 115–31), such as currently deployed steel bollard designs, that prioritize agent safety."

The clause allows Democrats to say that the bill does not fund Trump’s wall, and allows Republicans claiming that border security funding includes funding for a “wall system.” Speaker Paul Ryan’s office issued talking points praising the funding for “95 miles of border wall system.”

The funding will be primarily used for border fencing and “bollard” fencing. 

Here is a list of what the omnibus bill plans to spend on the following border security projects:
  • $251,000,000 for approximately 14 miles of secondary fencing, all of which provides for cross- barrier visual situational awareness, on the southwest border in the San Diego Sector.
  • $445,000,000 for 25 miles of primary pedestrian levee fencing along the southwest border in the Rio Grande Valley Sector.
  • $196,000,000 for primary pedestrian fencing along the southwest border in the Rio Grande Valley Sector.
  • $445,000,000 for replacement of existing primary pedestrian fencing along the southwest border. 
    The bill also includes $196,000,000 for deployment of border security technology and $38,000,000 for border barrier planning and design."


    3/22/18, "White House: President Trump Will Sign $1.3 Trillion Omnibus Bill," Breitbart, Charlie Spiering

    "“Let’s cut right to the chase: Is the President going to sign the bill? Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters at a White House briefing. The answer is yes.”...

    Mulvaney defended the funding for 110 miles of new and replacement “bollard” fencing on the border, although he acknowledged that some of it was replacement infrastructure for existing fencing....

    He admitted that the administration was disappointed that there were no limitations in funding for sanctuary cities.

    Mulvaney blamed Democrats for failing to reach a broader wall funding deal in exchange for a DACA legislative solution."...

    Perhaps The Donald was premature starting the 2020 campaign. If President Trump signs this. He loses 2020."


    Comment: The Wall is all we care about, was the reason Trump was elected, should've been half finished by now. He always guaranteed it, "Don't even worry about it." It was never negotiable or dependent on a "deal" with other legislation. Blaming "Democrats" is an insult. For decades both political parties have desperately sought open borders. Money can't be an excuse because we would crowd fund it if necessary. Other than death threats against Trump or his family, there's simply no excuse for continual evasions about The Wall. We've been insulted long enough.
