Mick Mulvaney pretty much laid out Trump’s strategy for getting the government funded while getting his border wall.
He specifically says that Trump will get his wall with or without Congress, which then means that he’s gonna take whatever money the Democrats will give him in the budget talks, and then figure out a way to build his wall however he likes.
AND it sounds like Democrats are ready to give him less than half of the $5.7 billion he’s asking for. If he gets this money then builds the border wall through the executive, it will be a yuge victory for Trump, especially after appearing to cave in the first shutdown battle….
Don’t miss the part where Mulvaney just LAUGHS at Whitaker telling a Democrat that his time is up during his congressional testimony. That was pretty funny. It’s at about the 7.5 minute mark.
