Trump readies full-court press on border wall funding


(Worthy News) - President Trump will launch a full-court press for tougher immigration laws and generous wall funding this summer as Capitol Hill braces for a budget battle in September, sources with knowledge of his plans told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday, as the president teased the strategy in a meeting with congressional appropriators.

That meeting occurred just hours after the Supreme Court dealt the Trump administration a major victory by upholding the president’s travel ban on a handful of Muslim-majority countries. A White House official described Trump as jubilant and encouraged by the news, adding that he will “continue pushing for stringent immigration laws that protect Americans and put our own citizens first.”

In a statement circulated by the White House, Trump called the 5-4 ruling “a moment of profound vindication” and condemned his congressional and media critics for their frenzied coverage of the administration’s legal troubles surrounding the ban. A former Trump campaign adviser said “the Supreme Court ruling proved what President Trump’s supporters have known all along: He knows what’s best for this country and uses common sense to get things done.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
