Looks like the “Grinch” might steal Christmas after all. President Donald said no yesterday to a perposal that would have fully funded the government through February, but did not contain money for fund construction of a border wall. Some say hardline supporters told the President not to break his campagin promise. But technically he already since he promised to get Mexico to pay for it and they said no way. Now the house Republicians have come up with a new bill that includes 5.7 billion for the wall, but there are not enough votes in the Senate to pass it. So what does wll this mean about 100.000 federal employees wont see a paycheck for a while. federal parks will close this evening but won’t open tomorrow all together about 25 percent of government services will cease at mid-night tonite. And to make matters even worse Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has announced his resignation. He was thought to be one of the leaders that would hold firm against Trumps Amreica first doctrine which is making a lot of our allies nervous. The issue that provoked Mattis resignation was Trumps decision to rapidly withdraw U.S. forces in Syria and cut American troop levels in half in Afghanistan even with peace talks not going well. Most military minds would say finish the job you came to do so you wont have to do it over. Someone should remind Trump that no man is an island and with things the way they are today no country can afford to be either.
