(Worthy News) - President Trump's pursuit of additional border wall funding in his fiscal 2020 budget proposal will only lead to another government shut down, warned Democratic leaders on Sunday.
Trump harmed millions when he "recklessy" shut down the government in pursuit of funds to build an expensive border wall, said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., in a joint statement. But Congress refused and the president was "forced to admit defeat" and reopen the government, they added.
"The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again," they warned. "We hope he learned his lesson." [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
