TRUMP Walks Out Of Meet with Democrat Bigwigs After They Refused To Fund Mexico-US Border Wall

US President Donald Trump said “bye-bye” and walked out   angrily negotiations on Wednesday on funding a US-Mexico border wall when Democratic opponents refused to agree to the project.”A total waste of time,” Trump tweeted about his White House meeting with top Democratic congressional leaders. “I said bye-bye, nothing else works!” Although the two sides agreed that the meeting ended abruptly, they argued over who was to blame. His supporters the president asked Democratic leaders whether they would agree to fund his wall project in exchange for him ending a painful shutdown of swaths of government, which he has instigated in retaliation for the standoff, reported  some American media.AS people in the United States of America are suffering due to face- off between POTUS Trump and Democratic Party over construction of a wall along Mexico and US border, Trump has expressed frustration with the media coverage of him and his policies. He says that 85 percent of all newspapers were against him. He is pressing for funds for building a wall on the 3,145 km border between the nations to prevent people crossing over from Mexico. But the mainstream media and his principal rivals The Democratic Party who are in majority in the Senate comparable to India’s Rajya Sabha are reluctant to emphasize with him. US Administration had earlier gone on saying that there were already over 11 million undocumented persons in his country mostly from across the border.”Our newspapers cannot be edited in the interest of the general public,” the president said on Twitter. Referring to “Freedom of the press” cited by journalists, he said how many bogies are conjured up by invoking that greatly overworked phrase?”Therefore, he opted to bypass the traditional media .He is convinced American media is unfair and biased against him from day one and prefers to speak directly to America. Trump regularly tweets about “fake news.” He has doubled down on the view that overly critical news outlets are the “enemy of the American people.”He talked about more stringent libel laws to make it easier to sue news organizations, threatened the broadcast license of certain networks, and the Trump White House pulled the press pass for CNN personality Jim Acosta after a confrontation at a press conference. But so far he hasn’t taken government action, as Roosevelt and other past presidents have.A Trump-appointed federal judge sided with CNN on the Acosta press pass. Congress is unlikely to enact new libel laws to replace the  Supreme Court precedent, said American political analysts.Trump supporters  say  The Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, “raised her hand and said no, not at all,” said Kevin McCarthy, the senior Republican in the House, who was also present.”We heard once again that Democratic leaders are unwilling to even negotiate,” Vice President Mike Pence said.The vice president insisted that Trump came in good faith.”The president walked into the room and passed out candy,” Pence said. “I don’t recall him ever raising his voice or slamming his hand.”Trump wants USD 5.7 billion to fund a wall he says is needed to keep out dangerous illegal immigrants, drug dealers and people smugglers from Mexico. Democrats say the wall would have little impact on real border problems and that Trump’s tough approach has instead created a humanitarian crisis among vulnerable, unthreatening migrants.Trump’s main lever to exert pressure on Congress has been to refuse signing spending bills that cover large areas of government. As a result, some 800,000 federal employees and many more contractors have now been without pay for almost three weeks.Democrats insist they will not lift their opposition to the wall project and believe Americans will tire of the shutdown chaos and blame Trump.But Trump indicated Wednesday on a visit to Republican allies in Congress that he will continue to play hardball.”Whatever it takes,” he told journalists, when asked how long the shutdown could continue.Earlier at the White House, Trump told journalists that if he cannot get his way, he could declare a national emergency — a measure that allows him to bypass Congress and take the wall funds he needs from the military.”I think we might work a deal, and if we don’t, we might go that route,” he said, insisting he has the “absolute right” to declare an emergency, despite warnings in Congress that this could be seen as serious presidential overreach. But with Democrats winning control of the House in November midterm elections, Trump’s wall push has come up against a wall of its own.On Thursday, he will fly down to the southern border that he described in a prime-time television speech Tuesday as an open door to murderers and other criminals.”How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?” Trump said.”For those who refuse to compromise in the name of border security, I would ask to imagine if it was your child, your husband, or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken,” he said in the nine-minute speech. Trump claimed Wednesday that his address had been a success. Meanwhile, he says Corporal Ronil Singh, is our national hero. 33  years old Singh of India origin was working for the Newman Police Department .He was shot and killed during a traffic stop on December 26 allegedly by an illegal immigrant.
