Sen. Schumer Rescinds Offer on Funding Trump’s Border Wall


Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told the White House this week that he has retracted his offer to provide funds for the Mexico border wall well above the $1.6 billion that President Trump originally requested, Politico reported Tuesday. Sources say “Trump will simply not get a better deal than that on his signature campaign promise.” Last Friday, Schumer originally offered the border-wall funds while meeting with Trump, hoping to get “a broader deal to help DREAMers.” Since the government shutdown, a Democratic aide said that Trump has “missed an opportunity to get the wall.”
