Bigot-in-Chief Refuses to Give Up on Border Wall

Now he’s calling for cuts to domestic spending…

From AP News

President Donald Trump is proposing immediate budget cuts of $18 billion from programs like medical research, infrastructure and community grants so U.S. taxpayers, not Mexico, can cover the down payment on the border wall.

The White House documents were submitted to Congress amid negotiations over a catchall spending bill that would avert a partial government shutdown at the end of next month. The package would wrap up $1.1 trillion in unfinished spending bills and address the Trump administration’s request for an immediate $30 billion in additional Pentagon spending.

The latest Trump proposal, disclosed Tuesday, would eliminate $1.2 billion in National Institutes of Health research grants, a favorite of both parties. The community development block grant program, also popular, would be halved, amounting to a cut of $1.5 billion, and Trump would strip $500 million from a popular grant program for transportation projects. Some of that money would help pay for parts of the wall.

There’s some good news to this one, though…

Like Trump’s 2018 proposed budget, which was panned by both Democrats and Republicans earlier this month, the proposals have little chance of being enacted.

But they could create bad political optics for the struggling Trump White House, since the administration asked earlier for $3 billion to pay for the Trump’s controversial U.S.-Mexico border wall and other immigration enforcement plans. During the campaign, Trump repeatedly promised Mexico would pay for the wall, a claim the country has disputed.

He really needs to just give up. There will be no fucking border wall.

Get over it you over-grown, tiny-handed baby…

    Unless der Trumpenfuhrer can build a wall that cannot be flown over, or tunneled under, it will be a monument to stupidity. Armies abandoned fixed fortifications long ago, because they are the tools of a bygone age.

    They could cancel the Zumwalt and build the wall.

    What’d be really cool would be if Trump paid for it. Supposedly he’s got the money and it’d be sort of like paying taxes.

    He wants others/organizations to do with less and be fiscally responsible. Perhaps, he should set that example. Millions could be saved if he stayed at the White House on weekends. In addition to those savings, local business near his resort would not suffer so much.
