Daily Caller: Republican North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said President Donald Trump will not budge on the $5 billion requested for a border wall Wednesday, as the government enters its sixth day of a partial shutdown.

Meadows, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, said he does not believe Trump will agree to the Democrats’ counteroffer of $1.3 billion that could be used for the border wall, saying he does not think the amount is “reasonable.” The government will remain shut down until a compromise can be worked out among the two parties.

“I can tell you, if they believe this President is going to yield on this particular issue, they’re misreading him, misreading the American people,” Meadows told CNN on “Inside Politics.” “I see no evidence that would suggest he would come even close to 1.3” billion dollars in border wall funding.

This comes as Meadows pushed strongly against a short-term funding bill that would have funded the government until Feb. 8, saying the wall is necessary and that “the time to act is now.”

“The time to stand up for the American people and fight for wall funding is now. If the president vetoes a [continuing resolution (CR)] without wall funding, the American people and his allies in Congress will back him up. We’ll support him. The time to act is now. That’s why we were elected and it’s time we follow through,” Meadows told the The Daily Caller News Foundation days before the partial government shutdown.

Trump said the federal government will remain shut down unless there is an agreement on some type of border wall or fence Tuesday when speaking to reporters in the oval office.

Incoming acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney also warned it is “very possible” the partial government shutdown will run into 2019, as Trump insists funding for the border wall must be included.

The two parties will have to figure out an agreement, and the senators must be present for a vote on the Senate floor to send a bill to the president to sign and end the government shutdown. The House will not be in session Thursday.

    The sad thing is, Trump should have asked for the entire $25 billion instead of the measly amount he requested. If he doesn’t get anything, he won’t get it for the next two years that’s for sure, and I’m not sure at this point if he’ll be re-elected.

  2. “… an agreement on some type of border wall or fence ….”

    I guess I’m from a time when what you said mattered, and you did not say you would do something unless you could and would.

    After DACA was saved by kicking it to Congress I was fairly sure there would be no wall. The charade is shaping up and I see a “compromise” which will give us a wall, not on much of the border, and not that great big beautiful wall that we were sold. So far they have fixed fencing and DHS is calling fencing “wall”. Potus is also saying we are already building the wall. I hate being lied to because they think we are stupid. However, most of the ignorant are still cheering.

  3. well.
    i PRAY MEADOWS IS RIGHT?
    but i have MY DOUBTS.
