At a news conference that just ended, Trump stated that if the spending bill does not have the appropriation for the border wall, he will not sign it. He will not sign a Continuing Resolution either.

I think he’s decided to not have his own “Read My Lips” moment as there were rumors he was going to cave – good for him! After all, we’ve got 50 decent State governments still up and running. This should only show that the Federal Government does too much – much of what it does should be devolved back to the States if the Constitution does not grant the Feds the Powers to do all the things it does now.
