Limbaugh 'NOT HAPPY': It Looks Like Trump Is CAVING On Border Wall

Donald Trump has decided his Mexican border wall is a political hill to die on -- at least for now.

The U.S. president says he won't back down from demands that any immigration deal include wall funding as lawmakers from both parties rush to cobble together an agreement that can help avert a government shutdown next week.

Trump stopped short of overtly saying he'd veto government funding legislation that doesn't include money to begin building a physical barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border.

But the implication was clear and hangs over lawmakers' efforts to balance protections against deportation to some 800,000 young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children with Trump’s demands, which also include tighter border security.

An immigration agreement could open the way to a broad spending bill, which in turn could carry disaster relief funds, legislation stabilizing Obamacare and other measures that stalled in December.

The question now is whether Democrats will hold firm in their red line against wall money -- and whether they or Trump have stronger resolve.

The main reasons that Democrats are trying to block Trump's border wall is because it was a huge campaign promise that Trump made. If they can stop his wall they will use it against him in the 2020 campaign. That and the fact that most of the illegal aliens are future Democrat votes.

Amid the furor the president criticized the immigration proposal. "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards," Trump said in a series of tweets on Friday.

The Senate group has been working for months to craft legislation that would protect 700,000 children who were brought to the United States as illegal immigrants and later given protection from deportation under a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration.

"Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly," Trump wrote.
