There’s no doubt the border compromise is a bad deal — so I’m really puzzled by Republicans suggesting otherwise.
President Trump wanted $25 billion for a border wall. That number dropped to $5 billion. Not a penny less – that’s what the president said.
When the Democrats refused to budge – the president shut down the government. He said he would keep it closed until he got the five billion. And we all know how that worked out.
So the latest deal includes about $1.3 billion dollars for something called border barriers -not walls- barriers.

And Republican leaders are celebrating like they just won the Super Bowl. It’s like putting cheese on bean curd and calling it a juicy burger.
The American people are smart enough to realize what’s really going on. We lost the fight — at least for now — but the war to secure our border rages on.
The White House will need to come up with another strategy to get the funding. That’s because the Democrats will never allocate any money for a border wall. Ever.
Unless we could convince Alexandria Ocasio Cortez that a thundering herd of gassy cows was about to stampede across the Mexican border.
I’m still hopeful President Trump will find the money to build the wall — and fulfill a major campaign promise but the Democrats and Establishment Republicans are going to fight him every inch of the way.
And if you believe otherwise — you’ve probably been smoking weed with Kamala Harris.
