      President Trump has asked all Cabinet agencies to find additional funds that could be used to build his long-desired border wall, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday.

      “The president’s asked every agency to look and see if they have money that can be used for that purpose,” she said. “We’re looking at every avenue available”

      The comments are the latest indication the White House is trying to climb down from its threat to trigger a shutdown over Trump’s demand for $5 billion in wall funding.

      Can the Executive Branch shuffle around allocated money like that? Anyone want to bet there are lawsuits in the offing?

          Trump can issue all of the orders he wants, but if the federal bureaucracy chooses to ignore him or bog his initiatives down, well, he will just miss another opportunity to learn something about how the government works.

          He’s still clueless.

      Mexico might even help pay for it.

      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…
