President Trump, Senator Rand Paul, Bill discussed on Ron St. Pierre


Plan to keep the government open. The question now is it possible for them to devise a proposal that could pass the house and the Senate then moved to the president's desk for his signature right now does feel that way. Here is our twenty four seven reporter bills infra choices. Now Bill doesn't look like they're making much progress. Well yesterday was the first meeting of this group, the seventeen members of the house and Senate who are tasked with the job of of coming up with some type of agreement to keep the government open past February fifteenth yesterday. Hey, everybody agrees on this committee that additional resources are needed for border security things. Like additional personnel upgrades in technology, but it all comes down to that physical barrier along the southern border that the president has demanded by point seven billion dollars for they're still start divides, even on this committee as to whether money should be allocated for this. In fact, Democrats initial offering on this was zero dollars to go to a physical barrier along along the southern border. So yeah, there's a lot of work to be done here. Now all of the sessions, and they'll be working every day on this thing will be behind closed doors now yesterday was a public session. And that is expected to be it. I think it's interesting that Senator ROY blunt of Missouri said that the doing our job by definition means nobody gets everything they want will this apply to the president. I think that's going to be at the huge question here. Whether he is willing to. Back off of that five point seven billion dollars. But I'll tell you the truth Ron the fact that he was willing to go through with thirty five day shut down because of that demand. Doesn't lead you to believe the president's going to budge on that. So here we go. We're already a week in only two weeks left to get this done. And there's a large Chinese delegation in DC for some new rounds of trade talks in new to the marketwatch's that quite closely. Yeah. And this'll this'll go a long way toward stabilizing our financial markets as well as the Chinese markets and the global economy if we can get something done day one yesterday yesterday, and these are high level talks, featuring the vice premier of China day one yesterday, Steve Mnuchin, our Treasury Secretary said all good. They will meet again today. I don't think anybody's expecting an agreement out of this Ron, but if we can get positive news coming out of this. You'll see a little bit of a jump in the markets as well, they expect one or maybe even two more meetings between the two countries before a March first deadline. Line to get a deal done. Okay.
