According to Bloomberg, “The No. 3 House Democrat Sunday offered a path for a deal that could end the partial government shutdown, focused on a permanent solution for immigrants brought the U.S. as children rather than a three-year reprieve offered by President Donald Trump.” How many plans will be offered? Is this Clyburn speaking or Pelosi? If Clyburn, does he have the authority?
Clyburn was on FOX and a bit of what he said, “Let’s go back and forth on this and see where we can find common ground,” House Democratic Whip Jim Clyburn of South Carolina said on “Fox News Sunday.” He spoke a day after Trump made his offer, which was rejected even before he presented it by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats. But Clyburn said Trump should first agree to open the government to give Congress several weeks to negotiate a deal that would include more money for a wall on the southern U.S. border. Trump is demanding $5.7 billion.
Now he’s not asking to meet in the middle, he’s asking for the whole loaf. Nothing from the Democrats but an additional billion for boarder security. I’m sorry but this offer is toilet paper material.
Again from Bloomberg.
“Lawmakers from both parties and Vice President Mike Pence went on Sunday morning political shows — and Trump took to Twitter — to talk about a potential deal after the president on Saturday outlined what he called a compromise to secure money for the wall he promised during his 2016 presidential campaign.”
In closing, we have this from Vice President Mike Pence.
“Now people will start voting and we’ll see where they stand,” Pence said. He also insisted that the president’s proposal wasn’t amnesty when asked about criticism from the right. “This is not amnesty, there’s no pathway to citizenship, there is no permanent status here at all, which is what amnesty contemplates,” Pence said.
