    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says there will be no money for President Donald Trump’s border wall in any deal to keep the government open past a Feb. 15 deadline. A bipartisan group of House-Senate negotiators met for the first time Wednesday, and Pelosi addressed the issue at a session with reporters on Thursday. The California Democrat said she wants to see the negotiators’ bipartisan bill by next Friday.

    Democratic U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said there would not be any money for President Donald Trump's border wall in the deal being worked out by a bipartisan negotiation team. "There's not going to be any wall money in the legislation," she told reporters. The top Democrat in Congress said if Republicans have suggestions about adding more ports of entry or technologies, those kinds of things would be negotiable. "It is not a negotiation for the president to say ... 'it doesn't matter what Congress says'," she said at a news conference. "The president wants to have Congress...
  • Trump hits back at ‘very hostile’ Ann Coulter after ‘wimp’ jab

    President Trump said he’s not sure what he did to draw the ire of conservative commentator Ann Coulter, who called him a “wimp” after he signed a bill that would reopen the government but does not include funding for his border wall. “I hear she’s become very hostile,” the president told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Sunday. “Maybe I didn’t return her phone call or something.”

    I keep reading here and other places that Trump caved on the wall. Die hard Conservatives who praised Trump are losing faith because they are saying he broke his promise to build the wall. Conservatives are in a panic, which is exactly what the Democrats and their media lemmings wanted. I submit to you, like the Democrats, you are not seeing the big picture.

    President Trump said late Wednesday that he would deliver his State of the Union address after the ongoing partial government shutdown is over. "As the Shutdown was going on, Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the State of the Union Address," Trump wrote in a tweet. "I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the Shutdown, suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative - I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over." Trump clarified earlier statements suggesting he may do an “alternative” State of the Union, writing that he was not seeking an alternative venue because...

    The House speaker, fortified by brutal polling for Donald Trump, refuses to provide the President an easy way out of his own political box as the government shutdown sparked by his demand for a border wall drags into a 34th day. In his latest skirmish with Pelosi, Trump effectively admitted defeat late Wednesday and conceded that he would not be able to give his State of the Union address until after the shutdown ends. Earlier in the day, he had publicly thrown down a gauntlet and tried to force the speaker to back down over her refusal to let next...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that Democrats will not authorize President Donald Trump to give his State of the Union in the House chamber until the partial government shutdown ends. The California Democrat's letter to Trump escalates a standoff over the annual address hours after the president said he would give the speech in the House chamber next week as planned. Earlier this month, Pelosi urged him to reschedule the speech during a partial government shutdown. (More at link)..

    WASHINGTON — President Trump said he would look for alternative venues for his State of the Union address on Tuesday, appearing to capitulate after Speaker Nancy Pelosi again told him she would not invite him to deliver it at the House until the government reopens. The decision came after a tit-for-tat between Mr. Trump and Ms. Pelosi over the State of the Union address.....It had concluded, at least by late afternoon, with Mr. Trump declaring at the White House, “The State of the Union has been canceled by Nancy Pelosi because she doesn’t want to hear the truth.”
