House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., says President Trump “will not sign” a Senate-approved plan to temporarily fund government agencies, increasing the chances the government will partially shutdown on Friday night.
Emerging from a White House meeting, Ryan reported, “The president said he will not sign this bill.”
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Trump believes the Senate-approved measure, which would fund nine government agencies until early February, “is just kicking the can down the road.” He said there was still time to add additional border security provisions to the legislation.

precious wall. I do feel for the federal employees being treated as pawns.

Absolutely no money should go for his boarder wall.
Any money needs to go to help the people we screwed over in Centrol and South America.
What is not to get when things are so bad that entire families walk 2000 miles to escape the only home they know, for a chance to just survive.
We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.
