President Donald Trump Presses for funding of border wall amid France terrorist attack.
President Trump took to his tweeter handle to press for the building of the border wall, which has been in his agenda ever since his campaign for the president of the nation, the push for the border walk only got more serious as he wrote on his twitter handle for the funding of the wall.
He wrote, “Another very bad terror attack in France. We are going to strengthen our borders even more, “Chuck and Nancy must give us the votes to get additional Border Security!”
This came as a result of the terrorist attack which happened in Strasbourg, near the border of France. On Tuesday a gunman opened fire at an Outdoor Christmas market in Strasbourg, leaving three dead and more than a dozen wounded, which the French authority believed to be a terrorist attack.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump on Tuesday met with Senate Minority Leader Chucks Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi over his $5 billion requests for funding to build the border wall, however both minority leaders have declined the funding of the border wall instead proposed an offer by providing $1.6 billion for the border security instead of the building of the wall, lawmakers in the Senate have agreed to the deal.
Trump who got into a serious argument with minority leaders still sticks to the $5 billion for border security and the building of the wall.
