  • Military Leaders Consolidate Power in Trump Administration

During the White House press briefing on Thursday, reporters asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders how the Trump administration can reconcile Trump's campaign rhetoric with his current suggestion that, if American taxpayers don't ultimately pony up for the wall, he'll shut down the government.

Trump said that because legislators didn't follow that strategy, "now we have a big deal with Dems holding them up (as usual) on Debt Ceiling approval".

Trump would begin the effort next Wednesday with a speech in Missouri, the first in a series of addresses to generate public support on the issue, Gary Cohn, director of the National Economic Council, told the newspaper.

When asked whether the president is abandoning efforts to get Mexico to pay for the wall, Sanders said, "I certainly don't think any efforts have been abandoned".

Most recently, Trump threatened a government shutdown if USA lawmakers don't make room for the project in the federal budget. "He's committed to protecting American lives, and doing that through the border wall is something that's important, it's a priority and we're moving forward with it".

"Again, this is something the president committed to", she said. He's committed to protecting American lives.

After Trump's remarks, Cohn said, he felt "enormous pressure" both to resign and to stay in the administration. He has his own cottage adjacent to the pool; it was recently given a secure perimeter by the Secret Service, leading to the inevitable joke that it's the only wall Trump has successfully built.

At a Tuesday night rally in Phoenix, Trump went after - though not by name - Arizona's USA senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Republicans. After that, Congress would have to give permission for the government to borrow more money to meet its obligations.

The Tennessee senator's striking critique of the president, which has been replayed repeatedly on cable television, and now the White House's rebuke of him, captured as well as anything the disintegrating relationship between Trump and his party in Congress. And he's stopped mentioning the whole Mexico-will-pay-for-it thing.

White House chief of staff John Kelly is instituting a policy that will send only properly vetted information to the president's desk, a similar structure to that used by former presidents.

The simple fact is that no president can make a sovereign foreign government do something they believe to be disadvantageous for them.

"I don't have any question that Mexico will pay at least part of the tab", Griffith said. Sanders knows that. Trump does too.
