In the fierce debate around the wall on the border to Mexico Donald Trump has hit a peak with the representatives of the Democrats abruptly abandoned. It was "a total waste of time," wrote the American President on Wednesday on Twitter.
He had asked the democratic Chairman of the house of representatives, Nancy Pelosi, whether you will agree to the money for a wall, if he is to end the government shutdown. You've said no, and he ended the Meeting, he added.
Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 9. January 2019
The democratic Leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, said the same time in front of journalists that the President had asked Pelosi whether the required wall support. As Pelosi did this in the negative, whether Trump got up and left. To Schumers, the President proposed "somehow on the table". Then he was gone "just got up and out". Once again, Trump not to have had a "tantrum", "because it is according to his will," said the Democrat.
Vice-President Mike Pence, who was at the Meeting also present, but denied that Trump had lost control. To the beginning of the Meeting the President of the sweets distributed, reported Pence.
An end to the shutdown in sight
The dispute over the Trump required border wall is the reason for the Shutdown, since just before Christmas, parts of the government to a standstill. An end to the budget dispute and of the partial Government shutdown is not in sight.
Trump wants to agree to a new budget law, if there is expenditure in the amount of 5.7 billion dollars for the construction of a wall are provided. The Democrats rely on their votes Trump in the Congress to refuse the funding of the ramparts.
Wheeler durable EPO-chief
Trump has nominated the interim head of the environmental authority, the EPA, the former coal lobbyist, Andrew Wheeler, as the permanent authorities chief. The White house submitted the official nomination on Wednesday to the Senate, which must approve the hiring decision. In the Congress chamber Trumps the Republicans have the majority. The US President had praised in November, Wheeler's work as "fantastic" and announced, to entrust him permanently with the EPA chief post.
Wheeler directs the EPA, since the previous authorities chief Scott Pruitt had resigned in July because of a series of scandals. As before, Pruitt Wheeler is working systematically to make a series of environmental regulations to undo, which had been decided under trump's predecessor, Barack Obama.
As environmental protection requirements for coal-fired power plants have been loosened. In addition, the emission standards for cars are to be attenuated from the year 2025. However, several States filed a lawsuit against these decisions. The environmental organization Sierra Club explained in November, to Wheeler, the EPA's lead was as if "you give a thief the key to the locker".
Trump threatens California
Moreover, the US President out of anger has threatened to fire on forestry administration in California, the Sunny state again with the deletion of the provision of aid after the devastating forest. If the Democrat-led government of California "can't get the curve, which is little likely," he instructed Fema to the termination of the payments, wrote Trump on Wednesday when the short message service Twitter.
"billions of dollars are sent to the state of California for forest fires, which would happen with a clean forest-Management never," wrote Trump. "It is a shameful Situation in terms of life and money."
Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forest fires that, with proper Forest Management, would never happen. Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a immoral situation, in lives & money!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 9. January 2019
California has for years been suffering an extreme drought and was hit last year by several serious fires. The "Camp Fire" in the state's North, more than 80 people came, in November, killed.
