  • Trump Faces Federal Shutdown In First 100 Days

    President Donald Trump is ending his first 100 days with a budget showdown. With a congressional deadline to pass a federal budget looming on April 28th, the Trump administration is adamant about one budget item. A down payment for Trump's proposed border wall with Mexico is not off the table. White House officials insisted that Trump will not back-down from the budget item, indicating he may veto a budget that does not include the down payment. However, the Congress can easily pass temporary spending bills to keep the federal government operating, while negotiating new terms for the 2017 budget. Either way, at the end of his first 100 days Trump is starring down a government shutdown.

Trump left empty seats on either side of him, with name cards for Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, and Pelosi.

  • Dems: Trump's 2020 Budget 'Untethered From Reality'

    President Donald Trump called on Monday for spending more U.S. taxpayer money on the military and a U.S.-Mexico border wall. Reuters reports he also wants to overhaul social safety-net programs. However, the budget doesn't address reducing the federal deficit or the national debt, previously critical issues for Trump’s fellow Republicans. Like past Trump budget proposals, the plan is likely to die in Congress but live on in Trump's 2020 re-election campaign.
