The American president Donald Trump has a bright woordwisseling had with the opposition about the funding of the wall on the border with Mexico. The cameras of the press could record anything.
For the beginning of a conversation behind closed doors was in the Oval Office, a debate between Chuck Schumer, the Democratic majority leader in the Senate, Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, and president Donald Trump. The altercation was recorded by the attending press.
The president threatened a stalemate of certain departments within the government. “If we have no border security, there will be a shutdown of the government,” said Trump. “And I’m proud of it’. The Democrats and some Republicans are against the construction of the wall between the United States and Mexico.
Trump received Schumer and Pelosi behind closed doors to his demand to five billion dollars for the construction of a part of the wall to discuss. The Democrats stressed that the two chambers of the Congress, the financing of the government will guarantee, but that, for the wall not the required majority would be found.
‘Shutdown as a christmas present’
The meeting ended without agreement. Pelosi warned then a shutdown of Trump as a christmas present for the American people. In such a ‘shutdown’ are workers forced to leave sent to and institutions and government offices closed. Schumer pointed out that of the 1.3 billion dollars that the Congress last year for the border security had made available had taken less than six percent is issued. Trump had ever promised that Mexico is the construction of the wall would fund.
Last Thursday had the U.s. Congress a overgangsbegroting adopted. The 5 billion that the president needs for the construction of the wall, were not included. Trump has until Friday night the time to the overgangsbegroting to sign.
As on 21 december no match, will certain departments of the government any more money, such as, for example, the border protection of the department of Homeland Security. The Pentagon, the ministries of Education, Health and Employment would not be affected, because in september, a budget for the longer term for these ministries was recorded.
