Rush Limbaugh isn’t happy about the new budget – and he’s not afraid to say so.
Upon receiving news that the Republicans reached a compromise with Democrats that didn’t include funding for a wall, Limbaugh unleashed his wrath. NewsMax reports:
President Donald Trump got cheated by Democrats on funding for the border wall, and should not have caved on his demand for $5 billion, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday on his nationally syndicated show.
“It’s what the drive-by media calls compromise: Trump gets nothing and the Democrats get everything, including control of the House in a few short weeks,” Limbaugh fumed. “In fact . . . Trump is going to get less than nothing because this compromise strips out the $1.6 billion for the wall that the Senate Appropriations Committee had already approved weeks ago, that’s gone too.”
Trump early Wednesday backed off on his demand for funds to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, but said on Twitter “one way or the other, we will win on the Wall!”
Limbaugh is right, but he shouldn’t give up on Trump yet – Trump is a strong negotiator, familiar with unconventional tactics. He still has tricks up his sleeve, and we wouldn’t bet against him.
