BREAKING: Paul Ryan Says Trump WON’T SIGN Spending Bill to Keep Govt Open – Cites Dispute Over Border Wall Funding

President Trump interrupted outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan during his weekly Republican caucus meeting.

Rep. Mark Meadows, VP Mike Pence, Rep. Mo Brooks, Rep. Paul Ryan were all seen entering the White House for a meeting.

According to FOX News reporter Chad Pergram, Paul Ryan emerged from the meeting and said President Trump will not sign the interim spending bill!

Ryan: The president informed us that he will not sign the bill that came from the Senate last evening because of his legitimate concern for border security. So what we are going to go back to the Hse to work with our members. We want to keep the government open.

 

PERGRAM: House to try to move interim spending bill with amendment of $5 billion for border wall. Plus $8 billion for disaster aid. That may not clear the House. They would then bounce it back to the Senate. Senate probably couldn’t approve that bill

The President hinted earlier Thursday that he may veto the interim spending bill since it did not provide $5 billion for border wall funding.

Last night, the Senate passed a two-month stopgap funding bill in a late night vote to avoid a Saturday government shutdown.

The bill was then quickly sent to the House just two days before the funding was set to expire.


Paul Ryan failed miserably to get the bill passed because President Trump refused to sign without border wall funding.

President Trump now put a tremendous amount of pressure on the House to provide border wall funding in the bill or it’s lights out in less than 48 hours.

Please, Mr. President, keep your campaign promise and get funding for the border wall — even if that means shutting the government down.
