The charge is to be understood as "The Radical Left." The charge, designed to expose rhetorical arsenal.
So Trump is asserted that the wall is already "being built." The southern border near McAllen, Tex. Some existing defenses have been refurbished.
The compromise includes $ 1.375 billion for 55 miles of new fencing along the border, less than $ 5.7 billion that trump had demanded for 234 miles of steel barricades. The Democratic Republic of the Congo, which replaced the president's promise that Mexico would pay for the wall, propelled the country into the longest government shutdown in American history.
When Trump backed down at the end of january, agreeing to reopen the government without the desired wall funding, his allies – in conservative media growing incensed.
Some of the same voices made their disappointed on Tuesday. Ann Coulter, the right-wing provocateur who once again referred to Trump as her "emperor god" and now calls herself a "former Trumper," again characterized him as weak for failing to "fight" for the wall.
Disapproval what apparent even among those who remain loyal to the president, and whose punditry he loyally follows. Sean Hannity, the Fox News "Trump's ear, garbage new compromise" on Tuesday night.
"We have not seen the language, nor has the White House – sources are telling me That's not the case, but the Democrats are going to put a lot of restrictions on wall construction, in other words that's not really wall money, "Hannity said, in
Fox's Laura Ingraham opened her show Tuesday with a rhymed warning for vignette: "The border wall becomes a border stall."

If that fact bothered him, Trump did not show it Tuesday night, even as his channel of choice sounded in alarm about the agreement.
Instead, he broadcast a cheery, even sentimental, mood on social media, retweeting a video from "Life on Earth" of a pair of big cats yawning and nuzzling each oth It was a departure from his usual fare of boasts and insults. But they hardly embraced the gesture, instead of responding with images of the president's two states on safari, including one of the adult men holding a dead leopard .
As congressional leaders tried to sell the president on their own Compromise, the White House and immigration on Capitol Hill saw support for their position in the conviction of Joaquín Guzmán, the infamous drug lord known as "El Chapo." Trump's press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said in a tweet that the guilty verdict showed, "we must secure our border." Trump, for his part, has claimed that the wall would "help stop drugs."

In April 2017, Cruz introduced the EL CHAPO Act, short for the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets Provide Order Act. The bill, which has more conservative sponsors, would earmark any money recovered from the infamous criminal "for security measures along the Southern border, including the completion of a border wall."
