New reports are out suggesting that President Trump will block relief funds for the massive devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas to get more funding for Trump’s border wall. President Trump recently said at his rally in Arizona that “If we have to close our government down, we’re building that wall.”
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was asked by Fox News’ Chris Wallace if Trump’s shutdown threat was “out the window” now that flood relief was a top priority.
“I can’t really comment on if it’s out the window or it’s not out the window. And again, I know the wall is a huge priority to the president, and we want to make sure that we get money for that.”
Millions of Americans are suffering as a result of the devastating storm, and President Trump is focused on his racist, kind of silly border wall agenda.
