Hopefully most appropriation bills actually passed a little more little better privatisation spending so much trying to avoid it now Fred sources close to some of my CNN colleagues on Capitol Hill if heard from people close to the Republican leadership house Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader who had a meeting with President Trump earlier this week telling him that are preparations bills appropriation bills were moving forward smoothly in a bipartisan fashion they told him that they didn’t want anything to distract or derail potentially the Supreme Court nomination Brett Kavanaugh a government shutdown as sources indicated the president was receptive to their message but obviously on Twitter he is threatening one yet again Fred the border wall issue a house Speaker Paul Ryan said the president was willing to be patient for that kind of funding listen we walked through our strategy for Appropriations before the fiscal year what are strategies so we think we have a unified strategy to make sure that we get as many appropriation bills done as possible as far as the walls concerned we’ve gotten some wall funding already underway that is being funded but I think it’s not a question of if question of when and in the president’s going to be patient to make sure that we get what we need so that we can get that done patients well if you look at the tweets from the president this morning it doesn’t necessarily sound like he’s being to patient about also where is the disconnect here in a few places before where Congress has been willing to put some money in for a wall and then Trump says I want all the money up front but that even the best of times it’s very hard to get full Project funding in a multi-year project look at these infrastructure projects never get all the money up front and then there’s the New Mexico was supposed to pay for this wall where is that discussion now this is something that Democrats will talk about even if Republicans don’t want to I’m in look at the sound but you just ran from Paul Ryan he didn’t factor in that will appropriate at propriate money and then then what we’re silent on the on the Mexico pledge but it does show that Democrats are willing to put up more money for border security and the wall and other places in order to get compromised on the broader immigration issues
