Trump White House Signals It Will Back Down from Shutdown Over Wall — Has Found Other Ways to Fund Wall (VIDEO)

The Trump White House signaled today they would back down from their promised shutdown over the border wall.

White House spokeswoman made the comments Tuesday morning on FOX News Channel.

Sarah Sanders: “We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion.”

According to the Washington Post the Trump Administration has found other ways to fund the much-needed wall on the US southern border.

The White House wants to avoid a partial government shutdown and has found other ways to get the border wall President Trump is demanding, spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Tuesday.

Sanders’ comments come four days before large portions of the federal government will begin shutting down unless Congress and Trump reach a funding deal.

Trump has been demanding $5 billion from Congress for his border wall, which Democrats refuse to give.

But Sanders told Fox News Channel: “We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion.”

“At the end of the day we don’t want to shut down the government, we want to shut down the border,” Sanders said.

Sanders said the White House was exploring other funding sources and believed it could be legally done.

Florida-based triple amputee veteran, Brian Kolfage, created a GoFundMe push to fund President Trump’s border wall through donations from the public this week.
