Trump Says He Is ‘Extremely Unhappy’ With Border Deal

2019-02-12 23:52
[President Donald Trump]]] ‘’I am extremely unhappy with what the Democrats have given us. It's sad. They're doing the country no favor. ‘’ Congressional negotiators reached on Feb. 11 an agreement to prevent a government shutdown and finance construction of new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border. Republicans tentatively agreed to less money for the border wall than the White House’s $5.7 billion wish list, settling for a figure of nearly $1.4 billion, according to congressional aides. The funding measure is through the fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30. [[President Donald Trump]] “I’m thrilled because we’re supplementing things and moving things around and we’re doing things that are fantastic, taking from far less important areas and the bottom line is we’re building a lot of wall,” The agreement means 55 miles of new fencing—constructed through existing designs such as metal slats instead of a concrete wall—but less than the 215 miles the White House demanded in December.
