Trump says he is unhappy with shutdown deal but will consider it

Video: Trump's Bogus El Paso Claim

Trump, who triggered a 35-day closure of about a quarter of the federal government with a December demand for $5.7 billion from Congress to help build the wall, said he has yet to decide whether to support the agreement reached on Monday night by key Democratic and Republican lawmakers.

"The US cities of the US-Mexico border are far safer than the US cities that are deeper in the interior of the United States of America", he said.

"Democrats have got to stop being so angry and they've got to start being partners", Trump also said, despite much of his rally criticism being aimed at his opposition party.

Trump's has previously claimed El Paso was one of the country's most unsafe cities prior to the construction of a government-sanctioned fence dividing the city and Ciudad Juárez in Mexico.

"Standing beneath an American flag flanked by red signs that read "finish the wall", the president tossed plenty of fresh red meat to the capacity crowd, which periodically interrupted him with chants of 'build the wall!'"

Republicans tentatively agreed to far less money for Trump's border wall than the White House's $5.7 billion wish list, settling for a figure of almost $1.4 billion, according to congressional aides.

Tom Suozzi, Moderate Democrat On Powerful Economic Committee, Backs Green New Deal
Ocasio-Cortez's team has said that they plan to publish an official FAQ for the Green New Deal as the resolution moves forward. The FAQ said that the Green New Deal will provide "Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work ".

"On Monday, she and other activists will lead protestors in a counter rally to the president's gathering that will include former congressman Beto O'Rourke, local leaders, taco trucks and teams of mariachis playing Bob Marley's 'Get Up, Stand Up'". At various points during his own rally, Trump claimed that 69,000 people had RSVP'd and that fire marshals allowed 10,000 people in with "tens of thousands" still watching outside.

Meanwhile nearby, O'Rourke told supporters El Paso was, "safe not because of walls but in spite of walls".

The FBI's Uniform Crime Report shows that El Paso's annual number of reported violent crimes dropped from almost 5000 in 1995 to around 2700 in 2016.

The trouble here for Trump, of course, is the same as it's been for months: immigration hawks who were promised a $25 billion wall aren't thrilled at the prospect of trading that promise for pennies on the dollar. "They're full of crap, when they say it hasn't made a big difference", Trump said.

As for O'Rourke, NBC News estimated that there were 7,000 and 8,000 people at his rally and march.

O'Rourke directly took on Trump over border security and Trump's desire for a wall or other physical barrier.

That, however, didn't stop him from connecting with Gasol after he was traded for Jonas Valanciunas , C.J. Miles, 31, has been a disappointment, scoring just 5.5 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 0.6 assists per game.

While he appeared impressed when describing the drug-detecting abilities of German shepherds that work for the US Secret Service, he made it clear that he can get by in his daily life without the slobbery canine companionship welcomed by many of his predecessors. But O'Rourke said only, "This is where we make our stand". "We are going to show the country who we are". Now, immediately upon its building with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities.

"The Democrats do not want us to detain, or send back, criminal aliens!" He told them the idea of Clinton being convicted of crimes - apparently related to her use of a private email server as secretary of state - as looking like a better and better idea. "They're becoming the party of socialism, open borders, late-term abortion, and crime".
