The President of the United States Donald trump interrupted a meeting with democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in both Houses of Congress, where he was to discuss disagreements over the financing of the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico, which continues in the US “shutdown”.
“Just left the meeting with Chuck Sumer and Nancy Pelosi, just a waste of time. I asked what will happen within 30 days, if I’ll open and resume [finish “shutdown”] you approve of a plan for border security, including a wall or metal fence? Nancy said “No.” I said “Bye-bye,” nothing else will work!”- Trump wrote on his Twitter page.
Schumer confirmed that Trump left the meeting. He specified that the President asked Pelosi whether she would agree to Finance his wall. After she answered “no,” Trump, according to Sumer, stood up and said, “Then we have nothing to discuss.” “And just came out,” Schumer added.
The meeting was held in the White House. With Chuck Schumer (Democratic leader in the Senate) and Nancy Pelosi (Democrat leader in the House of Representatives), Trump had to discuss his migration policy, and in particular the financing of the wall on the border with Mexico. The US President wants the funds for the construction of the wall were laid in the law on the financing of the government, which was to be adopted at the end of last year.
The Democrats refused to support this proposal. In the end, the document on financing of the government is not adopted, and since December 24 of last year in the United States continues “shutdown” — partially suspended the work of the government for lack of funding. Schumer and Pelosi think the construction of the wall “costly” and “inefficient” project and insist that Trump stopped “shutdown” and has ceased to “hold the American people hostage” to their political ambitions. The construction of the wall on the border with Mexico was one of Trump’s campaign promises.
