Trump Plays Budget Hardball

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 21 April 2017  (3 days ago)
President Donald Trump’s budget director is threatening to withhold funding for Obamacare subsidies unless Democrats agree to help fund the border wall in the 2017 budget supplemental. The offer follows weeks of determined Democratic opposition — amid determined waffling by top GOP leaders — to any funding for Trump’s wall during this year. Budget director Mick Mulvaney said at a business conference on Thursday, “We have our list of priorities, won’t surprise anyone what some of them are."
