Rush Limbaugh is 'not happy' about Trump 'caving' on border wall

President Trump has indicated that in the interest of keeping the government running he "may be willing to wait...to secure federal funding for his controversial wall" along the U.S.-Mexico border, reports Bloomberg.

Conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh is not pleased. During his Tuesday broadcast, he said, "I'm very, very troubled to have to pass this on...But it looks like...President Trump is caving on his demand for a measly $1 billion in the budget for his wall on the border with Mexico."

He continued, "...the bottom line is that if he is willing to withdraw a demand of his for a measly billion dollars for the wall because the Democrats are threatening a shutdown then the Democrats will have just learned that this threat works on Trump, too, not just all the other Republicans."

Limbaugh also predicted that "...once [the Democrats] get away with it, they're gonna keep trying. And if they get away with it once, they're just going to keep using it."

She said, "Building that wall and having it funded remains an important priority to him. We also know that can happen later this year and into next year."

President Trump also made a Tuesday comment on the issue, tweeting, "Don't let the fake media tell you that I have changed my position on the WALL. It will get built and help stop drugs, human trafficking etc."
