President Donald J. Trump, in order to get paychecks for all the families impacted by the shutdown and get the Federal Government back to work, offered Democrats a compromise. He agreed to sign a 3-week continuing resolution (a funding bill that fully funds the Government for a set time period) in return for their agreement to negotiate in good faith. He is requesting the House of Representatives produce a budget resolution that meets the needs of the American People, the needs of Government, and the needs of the Country. As He is accountable for the safety of this country, he wants the resolution to include sufficient funding to adequately secure our Southern Border.
Consider this a Clarion Call to the Country! If we don’t back away from this cliff, we are destined to follow all other great empires that reached a pinnacle and then disappeared into the dustbin of history.
