What Democrat would buy the fallacious proposition that it’s about “see he’s not building the wall anymore” and also sign off on a steel fence.
It’s about the absurd premise of a boondoggle itself, and the promise that mexico will pay for it.
Mulvaney has apparently brought his absurd OMB/CFPB logic to the WH.
Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said President Trump has moved away from his desire for a concrete wall along the U.S.-Mexico border toward a plan for metal fencing instead, which he said indicates how the president is working to compromise with Democrats.
In an interview set to air Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Mulvaney says that the president has shown a “willingness” to compromise with Democrats to reopen the government, which has remained partially closed for 15 days.
“[The president] was willing to agree, and he mentioned this at the Rose Garden press conference, to take a concrete wall off the table,” Mulvaney tells NBC’s Chuck Todd in the interview.
“If that is not evidence of our willingness to solve the problem,” Mulvaney continued. “Because again, what’s driving this is the president’s desire to change the conditions at the border. And if he has to give up a concrete wall, replace it with a steel fence in order to do that so that Democrats can say, ‘See? He’s not building a wall anymore’ that should help us move in the right direction.”
It never was a problem, Mike. The problem is that this is an unnecessary shakedown and a lockout of federal workers. Because your boss reneged on a deal for the CR, after being cowed by RWNJ pundits.
