    Wrong, and you are twisting/spinning what was actually said and responded to. It is all your said really has - deliberate deceit.

    Besides being wrong, you are against a barrier so your opinion is irrelevant to those who want a wall/barrier.

    The House has passed bills to open individual agencies, and McConnell has already refused to allow those bills to be voted on.

    Because that is what it has come down to.
    So just wait and see who blinks first.

    Since you can not support your comments, run along in avoidance.

    He literally said Mexico would submit a cash payment. He’s trying to spin it with “never said they’d write a check, he meant through trade deals.”

    The part you aren’t getting is that he literally said they would send us a lump sum of cash.

    You might want to engage in actual argumentation - you know - where you present quotes of what was actually said and in context?

    I know. The Senate is part of Congress. Didn't state the reason he would not allow the vote is because he knows the President would not sign the bill.
