Trump threatens U.S. government shutdown over border wall

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday he would allow the federal government to shut down if Democrats do not fund his border wall and back immigration law changes, betting that maintaining a hard line will work in Republicans’ favor in November congressional elections.

However, a disruption in federal government operations could backfire on Trump if voters blame Republicans, who control Congress, for the interruption in services.

“I would be willing to ‘shut down’ government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally, go to the system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!” Trump said on Twitter.

Americans are divided along party lines on immigration, and 81 percent of Republicans approved Trump’s handling of the issue, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released this month.

The Republican president has threatened a shutdown several times since taking office in 2017 in a bid to get immigration priorities in congressional spending bills, especially funding for a wall along the southern U.S. border. Trump has asked for $25 billion to build the wall.

“I don’t think it would be helpful, so let’s try to avoid it,” Republican Senator Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Congress must agree on a spending measure to fund the government by a Sept. 30 deadline.

Although Republicans control both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, disagreements between moderates and conservatives in the party have impeded a speedy legislative fix.

Standoffs over spending levels and immigration led to a three-day government shutdown, mostly over a weekend, in January and an hours-long shutdown in February.

The House in June rejected an immigration bill favored by conservative Republicans.

The Republican president has made tougher immigration laws a centerpiece of his administration, from the first ill-fated travel ban on people from predominantly Muslim nations to the current battle raging over the separation of illegal immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

A federal judge on Friday urged the U.S. government to focus on finding deported immigrant parents whose children remain in the United States.

Nigerians deserve healthy President, PDP, R-APC tells Amaechi

Nigerians deserve healthy President, PDP, R-APC tells Amaechi

Nigerians deserve healthy President, PDP, R-APC tells Amaechi

The opposition party observed Amaechi and others in govt “basically understand that the President is sick” and that Buhari didn’t possess the mental skill to steer the country.

The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, who spoke to our correspondent, asked Nigerians to insist on the capacity of a president in 2019.

If Amaechi could say that the President would win on a sickbed, then he knows the health status of his principal. He knows that we have a sick leader who will not be able to give his maximum attention to the country.

We don’t need such a man at this critical time. We need a President who will be able to work 24 hours and read all memos, stand at meetings and debate with people and the parliament. We don’t need a figurehead president that the likes of Amaechi are praying for.

I know that people like him want a president they can deceive, who will not be on top of happenings in their ministries and in the country. They want a president who won’t watch television and who will not read newspapers. If that is what they want, they will meet their Waterloo in 2019.

Secondus introduced that the political war can be between what he called a desperate cabal and Nigerians who he noted:

will be desirous to get freed from the grip of the wicked.

The National Publicity Secretary of the R-APC, Kassim Afegbua, talked about Nigerians deserved improved than a President on a sickbed to deliver leadership in the twenty-first century.

Afegbua pointed out,

Unknown to Hon. Minister Amaechi, Nigerians do not want a man on sickbed, hence there is a general consensus that this present leadership should quit.

The country is terminally ill as a result of bad and ineffective leadership. Nigerians have been prevailing on the President to sit down and offer leadership, but he has been racking his brain.

In the meantime, the Sokoto State Governor,  Aminu Tambuwal, has talked about he is nevertheless a member of the APC. The governor, who spoke via his Director-familiar, Media, Abubakar Shekara, pointed out this whereas reacting to claims with the aid of Amaechi.

Among others, Amaechi had mentioned Tambuwal would defect from the APC, including that Buhari would win Sokoto State without the governor in the APC.

Shekara said the governor would not take the challenge with the minister.

He stated,

My principal will right now, not take issue with anybody on who will win in what state, particularly Sokoto.

Maybe, he would have reacted if the comment is centered on the candidate of another party and not the APC, which he is a bonafide member.  How do you expect him to be taking issue with a fellow party member on the fortune of his party?

Shekara also seized the probability to denounce speculations surrounding Tambuwal’s deliberate defection from the APC.

He hinted,

Tambuwal is still a member of the APC, and if there would be need for him to defect to another party, he would make his stand known at the appropriate time.

Farage: Bannon Plan Might Assist Populists To EU Election Victory

Farage – the Ex Ukip leader anticipated sweeping advances for anti-European events all through subsequent can also be European elections, aided through the brand new challenge introduced with the aid of Bannon.

Bannon, one of the crucial architects of Donald Trump’s US election triumph in 2016 and the former head of the right-wing Breitbart information, goals to set up a pan-European populist foundation.

Farage advised the Observer that, Eurosceptics could become the biggest political grouping on the continent and predicted that anti-ecu MEPs may be relaxed between 176 and 235 seats in the European Parliament elections next may also.

He said:

My view is that somewhere between a quarter and a third of seats in the European Parliament are going to be Eurosceptic and Euro-critical.

Farage added:

You could – and it might not happen for all sorts of cultural and left/right political reasons – have a Euro-critical group that is the second biggest in parliament. With a bit of luck and a following wind, it could even be the biggest.

Bannon’s foundation, called The stream, can be based in Brussels and committed to campaigning aggressively for a big, anti-ecu faction in the European elections next spring. Bannon stated remaining week he had already started raising funds amid hypothesis that former English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson, at the moment in penal complex, might be provided a number one role in its UK wing.

Robinson, whose imprisonment has made him a cause célèbre among the foreign a long way-appropriate, may be released this week following his enchantment in opposition t a 13-month sentence for contempt of court docket in may additionally.

Farage additionally published that Bannon desired to offer a rightwing antidote to the center-right European people’s party (EPP), currently the biggest party in the European Parliament, and the EU Socialists (PES), a social-democratic political grouping that comprises the British Labour party, the Italian Democratic party and French Socialist party.

Farage said:

You’ve got two groups across Europe who are very highly co-ordinated at what they do at elections. This is an attempt to get Eurosceptics to do the same thing.

He added:

The mood for change is very strong. Even though Britain is floundering with Brexit, across the rest of Europe, the Eurosceptics are on the march. Euro-critical and Eurosceptic movements are advancing at a very rapid pace everywhere.

It has because been claimed that Bannon is also forging hyperlinks with main Brexiters, including Boris Johnson, who resigned as international secretary this month, ambiance secretary Michael Gove and Jacob Rees-Mogg, chief of the European analysis neighborhood, the difficult Brexit wing of the Conservative celebration. All three are abilities rivals to the best minister and Bannon believes all of them could help convey his ambition to undermine and finally paralyze the EU.

Although Robert Ford, professor of political science on the college of Manchester and co-writer of a rebel on the right: Explaining support for the radical correct in Britain, was unconvinced that Bannon may dramatically form Europe’s political panorama.

I think shares in Bannon are overvalued. This idea that he’s going to become this pan-national Dr. Evil figure producing this big radical right alignment … there are some big barriers to entry. Influence in the US doesn’t really translate to influence in Europe.

A survey of national opinion polls launched by using Reuters found that Eurosceptic parties might extend their energy within the European Parliament with the aid of more than 60% at subsequent may also be elections. It predicted that numbers of Eurosceptic MEPs after next may additionally’s elections would upward thrust to 122 of the 705 purchasable seats.
