Chief of Staff Mulvaney Presses Trump To Hold Firm In Shutdown


Newly-appointed acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is reportedly pushing President Trump to stand firm and not accept a spending deal from Democrats that does not involve fully funding his plans for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Politico reports that sources close to Mulvaney say the aide is among several top officials counseling the president to reject any bills from Congress that do not supply the desired $5 billion the White House hopes to secure for a border wall.

“Democrats would like to try to increase spending on anything but the wall,” a person close to Mulvaney told the news outlet, who added that Mulvaney saw his role “as reminding the president this is a bad deal.”

    This wall could be a 20 year project if at that. There is no reason to shut down government as it is not emergent to reduce all illegal immigration overnight.

    And if we do not do sabbath well, who do we honor? A concern of the day.

    • I think I have actually understood your painful English.

      So Jared went to the WH on Shabbos, You realize it is possible to do so without violating Shabbos. Perhaps Jared did so?

      The wall could be up in less than a year, given the funding.
