Mick Mulvaney, White House budget director, this Sunday said that the money for the US wall that President Trump wants to build on the border with Mexico, needs to be part of a massive spending bill in the Congress.
Mulvaney in a conversation with The Associated Press said that “elections have consequences” and that “we want wall funding” as segment of the White House spending bill.
Congress needs to agree for funding the wall alongside Mexico and US border as well as appointing new immigration agents, as top priority for President Donald Trump.
Democrats stand forceful and deny spending any money for a border wall in the new catchall spending bill, which lawmakers hope to be uncovered next week on Friday.
Trumps commitment for building a wall alongside US and Mexico border is sky-high. In his campaign he said it would restrain illegal immigrants and the flood with drugs get into the United States, in the meantime he said that Mexico will cooperate with building the wall. But President Enrique said that his country will not be cooperating.
Mulvaney also announced that the administration is open for negotiating, about the Democratic interest in cost-sharing payments to insurance companies that will help low-earning citizens manage their health policies.
Votes from the Democrats and needed to pass any bill that will surface from the talks, but Democrats form the Senate could twist it all up if they refuse the bill for building the wall, which is the key component in Trumps campaign.
In the meantime Trump have plans to announce the blueprint for his administration reform plan this week, Mulvaney said.
He also said “I think what are you going to see on Wednesday is some specific governing principles, some guidance and some indications of what the rates are going to be.”
