Speaker Paul Ryan laments 'broken politics' in farewell address
21 December, 2018, 03:04
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has said he is only willing to provide the $1.6 billion for border security that was included in an earlier appropriations bill.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, in a tweet posted after Trump's Thursday meeting with members of the House, said the country "urgently" needs funding for border security that includes a wall.
Third-ranking House Republican Steve Scalise said the House will add US$5 billion (S$6.8 billion) wall funding and federal disaster aid sought by some lawmakers to the Senate Bill that would keep the government open through Feb 8.
Ryan stepped out of a closed-door meeting of GOP House members to take a phone call from the president.
Ryan said he was headed back to Capitol Hill to work on "adding border security" to the House version of the government funding bill.
Democrats would be in control of the House when the temporary funding expired, giving Trump less leverage in his demand for the US$5 billion. Not surprisingly, they all feel strongly about Border Security - stopping the flow of drugs, stopping human trafficking, and stopping terrorism.
The smart money is on additional border funding without funding explicitly delegated to the border wall.
The spending measure, also known as a continuing resolution, would fund nine Cabinet-level departments and several independent agencies through February 8, when Congress would again be forced to confront the issue. "We protect nations all over the world, but Democrats are unwilling to protect our nation".

Democrats claim they've defeated Trump's agenda by explicitly barring use of the funding for the building of a border wall.
Democrats, meantime, couldn't be more excited to see the eight-year Republican reign in the House end in mayhem.

"The president informed us that he will not sign the bill that came up from the Senate last evening because of his legitimate concerns for border security".
A senior White House official told CNN Friday it's possible that Trump will decide not to back down on the wall fight as a result of growing pressure from the Freedom Caucus and conservatives.
But on Thursday morning, shortly after speaking to Ryan, Trump suggested in a tweet that he was not prepared to sign the measure the Senate passed. What they are just beginning to realize is that I will not sign any of their legislation, including infrastructure, unless it has ideal Border Security. It also comes six weeks after Democrats captured House control, which begins January 3.
And MSNBC and C-SPAN have just announced Speaker Ryan has now canceled his press conference.
