Can you believe this? (ODT)
Donald Trump just announced that a deal has been struck to reopen the federal government until Feb. 15th without getting any border wall money.
That’s basically the same deal he vetoed last year that caused the government shutdown.
And here’s the crazy part: Trump admitted his “big beautiful concrete wall” was not necessary.
He rehashed many of the Democratic proposals for border security and then described the type of walls and barriers he wants.
He said they are “equipped with sensors, monitors and cutting edge technology including state-of-the-art drones.”
Then he lied.
Trump said, “We do not need 2,000 miles of concrete wall from sea to shining sea, we never did, we never proposed that, we never wanted that because we have barriers at the border where our natural structures are as good as anything we can build. They’re already there.”
