President Donald Trump’s White House is not moving from its demand for more than $5 billion in border Wall funding, which is backing Democrats into a corner as we enjoy Day 15 of the federal government shutdown.
V.P. Mike Pence — who raised some concerns when he tried to go lower than $5 billion in a recent negotiation, and was reportedly overruled by Trump — is holding the White House line. He met with associates of congressional leaders Saturday and would not budge on the $5 billion.
The Democrats are still confused, and clearly lack strategy.
Two Democratic officials briefed on today's White House meeting say Pence – who privately floated a smaller wall deal to Schumer that Trump rejected – made it clear the admin was now not moving off the $5 billion plus for wall. The impasse continues.

The Democratic Party is at a loss for how to handle President Donald Trump’s government shutdown, which reaches fourteen days in morning.
In a press conference, the stunned Democrat leaders said that they will pass some agency-opening bills in the House. But Mitch McConnell’s office has confirmed that it will not introduce any legislation that President Trump would not sign, and President Trump has made it clear that he expects $5 billion in funding for the southern border Wall.
Democrats want four weeks to wait. Maybe they want to return to their five-star vacation spots?
Here are the Democrats, followed by Republican leaders Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise’s press conference, in which McCarthy revealed that Schumer interrupted Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen in a national security briefing.
Here was the best part of the press conference, where the Democrats talked about some kind of winter wonderland involving Russia.
Here is McCarthy talking about how Schumer interrupted the female head officer of the Department of Homeland Security during a very important national security briefing regarding crisis on America’s southern border.
College Republican National Committee Flips Out After School Chapters Join Immigration Moratorium Coalition
The College Republican establishment is not happy about this.
The College Republican National Committee (CRNC) is enraged after several university chapters signed onto a letter calling for an end to temporary worker programs in the U.S. due the toll that the coronavirus pandemic has taken on the national economy.
College Republican leaders delivered the letter to the White House last week, urging Trump to put a moratorium on immigration policies that are jeopardizing the demographic integrity of the country.
“[W]e ask you to immediately take action to rescind the work authorization of hundreds of thousands of foreign, nonimmigrant skilled guest workers in order to ease the economic suffering of American college students and recent graduates looking for meaningful employment in these trying times,” the coalition wrote in their letter.
Over 25 College Republican and Young Republican groups signed onto the letter, which demonstrated how the “America First” movement is guiding and influencing conservative youth.
“These guest workers — and especially those in the OPT and H- 1B programs — take jobs temporarily at wages far below the average for their positions. This is because employers can easily pay these guest workers less than they pay Americans,” the letter stated.
“This is not right,” the letter added, calling for the H-1B program to be suspended and the OPT program to be shuttered permanently.
The letter has not come without consequences, as the CRNC has reportedly expressed displeasure with chapters that signed onto the coalition. Big League Politics has reported on how establishment forces within the College Republicans have conducted a witch hunt against Trump-style nationalists, harbored homosexual predators within their ranks, sided with ANTIFA terrorists against pro-Trump students, and committed other atrocious behavior to undermine the conservative cause.
Gavin Wax, a Fox News contributor who serves as President of the New York Young Republican Club, was instrumental in putting together the coalition. He believes that the letter represents the ascending movement within conservatism, and the push-back cannot stop the momentum that has coalesced behind this coalition with Trump in the White House.
“It is great to see young conservative leaders from across the country uniting to promote a common sense proposal to defend the American worker and our national sovereignty. We cannot continue to keep the gates open as working-class Americans struggle to provide for their own families,” Wax told Big League Politics.
“It is a shame that this position has not been readily adopted by more organizations and their national affiliations. We are thankful for the work FAIR and Michelle Malkin have done to advance this issue forward,” he added.
Big League Politics will continue to hold the College Republicans accountable as the establishment desperately tries to fend off the rising “America First” movement.
