Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairwoman Rep. Cheri Bustos said that a “partial wall” would be “fine.”
House speaker Nancy Pelosi flatly denied Trump’s request to fund the Wall with one word: “No.” But Bustos’ statement suggests that Democrats are more willing to play ball than their leader Pelosi, as the White House has always suspected.
Bustos might realize that President Donald Trump has all the leverage in this government shutdown because his supporters do not care that the government is shut down and many Americans want the government to be shut down because they feel that the government wastes massive amounts of money paying for “non-essential” workers and functions.
“If we have a partial wall, if we have fencing, if we have technology used to keep our border safe, all of that is fine,” Bustos said on CNN.
